Sounds Like Thessaloniki is a project that aims to present the current musical vibe, trends and activity in Thessaloniki through collectives, groups, individual artists and DJs who are active in the city’s music scene, each representing a different philosophy and covering a wide range of music styles and activities.

Octopus Garden will be collaborating with each group/individual on presenting their philosophy and musical perspective and establishing a connection with other similar groups and artists in Berlin.

The artists create a playlist consisting of 12 songs that represent their music style and identity. Their playlist will be distributed through Octopus Garden’s Mixcloud and YouTube channel, social media and website.

The playlists are curated by 10 different musical collectives and artists based in Thessaloniki and each month a playlist by a different collective will be presented.

"We set our sights on bringing artists together, supporting collaboration and exchange and promoting Thessaloniki’s musical activity abroad"
