Nikos Barpakis is a cultural multitasker who lives in Athens and Volos. Having spent his younger years studying economics in shipping and also pursuing a DJ career that earned him international recognition, the once classically trained musician discovered his love for collaborations on stage and off, as well as around it. As an event promoter, he has envisioned and realized more than 300 concerts throughout Greece. Various projects, such as Musicday 21st June (Fete de la Musique) over the past 13 years, or other festivals he has been a part of since their inception, focus mostly on public space interaction and low entrance fees, so that as many as possible can attend. Now a freelancer, co-owner of live clubs and member of numerous active collectives, he plans innovative concepts that maximize expression of youth and inclusion through simple participatory principles. He also envisions a sound future in Greece, one beat at a time.
