Greek Songstress Glykeria returns to Melbourne this weekend at the Festival stage for the 30thAnniversary of the Lonsdale St Greek Festival. Glykeria will perform her greatest hits on the Delphi Bank Stage on Saturday 25 February, making this her third performance at Melbourne’s largest celebration of all things Greek.

“It shall be a great delight to reunite with all of you, my dear friends across Australia. My intention is to express my love through the songs that I have selected and to bring amazing moments of entertainment to Greeks in Australia. I cannot wait to see you,” Glykeria.
