July 17th in Athens, the 2019 EJEKT Festival will celebrate its 15-year mark with a stunning lineup of artists including THE CURE, one of the biggest names of modern music.
The first headliner announced by EJEKT, the Cure returns to Greece after more than a decade for a show that will be a part of the upcoming European tour of the band, celebrating its 40 years of history. Concert-goers will hear some of the band’s most famous hits, which include: “Friday I’m In Love”, “Just Like Heaven”, “Pictures of you”, “A Letter To Elise”, “Boys Don’t Cry”, “Lovesong”, “Never Enough”, “High”, and “Lullaby” to name a few. The video below is the after movie from EJEKT 2018.
The Cure’s music is this unique blend of goth, pop, and rock which managed to portray so perfectly what exactly is was that the 80s and the 90s were. The characteristic persona of Robert Smith (with that haircut, the make-up, the red lipstick, the black clothes), the lyrics that cut deep into the multi layers of that era (from irony to angst to bursts of happiness) and his so very British voice became a stable not only for their generation but also for the next ones.
On July 17th, 2019 the Cure will take over the stage of EJEKT Festival, at Plateia Nerou in Faliro – the most beautiful open-air venue of Athens, right by the sea – for a show that will last more than 2 hours and will cover their great career.
