The Saris­tra Fes­ti­val is set to re­turn to the moun­tain vil­lage of Old Vlachata, which was aban­doned after the earth­quake of 1953. As it has for the past five years, the vil­lage will come back to life for three days over the first week­end of Au­gust, as con­certs, ex­hi­bi­tions, film screen­ings, lec­tures and more fill the earthen streets and cen­tral square. Spon­sored in part by Fix Hel­las, the Saris­tra Fes­ti­val be­gins on Friday, Au­gust 4, with a psy­che­delic elec­tronic post-rock per­for­mance by com­poser Theodore. Friday night will also fea­ture for­mer Stereo Nova front­man K.Beta and au­dio­vi­sual col­lec­tive drog_a_tek. Satur­day’s lineup in­cludes Greek un­der­ground band Acid Baby Je­sus and “freak rock­ers” Prins Obi & The Dream War­riors. There will also be a party at the Akron Bar on An­ti­samos beach. Pye Cor­ner Au­dio (aka Martin Jenk­ins), one of the big­gest emerg­ing artists on Europe’s elec­tronic mu­sic scene right now, is slated to per­form on Sunday, as are elec­tro-pop artist Larry Gus, post-punk band Hand & Leg and DJ Espeekay, who will make sure no fes­ti­val­go­ers even con­tem­plate go­ing to bed be­fore dawn. Ad­mis­sion to the Saris­tra Fes­ti­val is free. For more in­for­ma­tion, go to www.saris­trafes­ti­ or visit their Face­book page.
