Along with Nikos Vertis, The Festival will offer Melbourne’s biggest variety of live Greek entertainment, with over 70 hours of performance, including live music and dancing.
Cultural Programs Chair of the GCM Leo Vlahakis commented, “There is no doubt that for the past 33 years, the Antipodes Festival has ignited Melbourne’s Greek community. The inclusion of popular artist Nikos Vertis in this year’s program offers a unique opportunity to see one of the most in. demand Greek artists perform here in our own backyard for free. “
Vlahakis went on to say “I would like to in particular thank Chris Andrianopoulos and the Andrianopoulos family for supporting the Festival and helping make the Vertis performance a reality.”
Nikos Vertis was born in Gorinchem, Netherlands, and lived there until he was six years old. He then moved to Greece for 10 years before returning to the Netherlands. Two years later, he came to Greece to serve the Greek army. There, he met a musician that convinced him to stay in Greece and become a professional singer. In his free time, he likes to paint, play music, watch DVD movies, and relax with his friends. His first performance as a singer in front of an audience was at age 15.
The ANTIPODES FESTIVAL is the cultural arm of the Greek Community of Melbourne, which sees Melbourne’s Greek Quarter transform into one giant free street party, bringing together local and international performers, children’s activities, and food for a weekend of fun and feasting. It’s the perfect way to celebrate Melbourne's vibrant multiculturalism and explore Greek culture's beauty.
