Massive Attack

Release Athens 2024 welcomes Massive Attack, on Wednesday, July 17th, at Water Plaza (Plateia Nerou)! One of the greatest bands of the last decades return to Greece, after many years, with their most impressive show to date.

Formed in Bristol, England, in 1988, as members of partying collective the Wild Bunch, Massive Attack have consistently remained ahead of their time. With only 5 studio albums, they changed the sonic landscape of modern music forever. Challenging every known pop form and cliché, they gave birth to trip hop, a sound of their own that could not be put into any category. A dark and soulful combination of electronic sounds, hip-hop, samples, influences from dub / reggae / soul, even from post-punk, which captivated the world scene in the early 90s and offered us some of the greatest pieces of musical creation of the last 30 years.

3D and Daddy G, along with the wonderful voices that accompany them in their iconic tracks – from “Unfinished Sympathy” to “Safe From Harm” and from “Teardrop” to “Angel” – are the ingredients that make their live shows unique!

Mount Kimbie with their adventurous music, and Beak>, the group of Portishead’s Geoff Barrow, will join Massive Attack for one the most intriguing nights of the summer.
