Greek singer Glykeria will be performing at the Greek Festival of Sydney, according to the festival’s press release.
Greek Fest takes over Sydney’s Darling Harbour Precinct on February 25 & 26. With free music entertainment, Greek food and drinks, market stalls, dance performances and more; it is a much-loved festival event for all ages.
This year, audiences are in for a treat on Sunday evening with a free performance by adored Greek songstress Glykeria taking to the stage to perform some of her much-loved hits.
Recognized as one of Greece’s most important female singers, Glykeria’s career spans over three decades. Early on, she distinguished herself as an important voice in Greek music with her unique interpretation of songs by composers like Hadjidakis, Theodorakis and Loizos and in 1978 released her first album Min Kaneis Oneira.
Incredibly popular both in Greece and internationally, Glykeria will draw a massive crowd for this must-see show.
Any Greek celebration is not complete without a feast and the 2016 Greek Fest is no different.

Sydney can feast on the best that the Greek kitchen has to offer so go with an empty stomach, comfy shoes and get set to eat, drink and dance the night away.
