The 42nd Greek Festival of Sydney proudly announces that the celebrated Greek singer, Melina Aslanidou, will take centre stage at the 20th-anniversary edition of Greek Fest Darling Harbour, scheduled for Sunday 25 February 2024. The much-anticipated event promises to deliver an unforgettable experience, blending Aslanidou’s musical prowess with a vibrant celebration of Greek culture.
Melina Aslanidou, hailed as musical royalty in Greece, stands as one of the most successful singers of her generation. Renowned for her remarkable vocal range and unique songs, Aslanidou has carved a niche for herself, seamlessly fusing the traditions of Greek folk, entechno music, and pop. Her performance at Tumbalong Park is set to captivate audiences, adding a touch of musical excellence to the festivities.
Tumbalong Park, the picturesque venue for the celebration, will come alive with an array of Greek delicacies served by food vendors. From classic to modern twists on Greek snacks and sweets, attendees can savour the flavours of souvlakia, haloumi, loukoumades, and more.
The entertainment lineup extends beyond Melina Aslanidou’s performance, with Greek dance performances at the Convention Centre Forecourt by Sydney’s premier Greek and Cypriot dancing schools. Live local music acts will further enrich the cultural celebration.
President of the Greek Orthodox Community of NSW, Harry Danalis, expressed excitement about Aslanidou’s participation, stating, “We are thrilled that Melina Aslanidou is going to perform at the 20 years Greek Fest at Darling Harbour. We know this is an event that the public looks forward to, and we are prepared to do everything in our power to make it memorable.”
