Locomondo, one of the most exuberant, well-known, and beloved bands in Greece, is coming to the SNF Nostos stage for an unforgettable concert party.

Combining reggae, ska, Latin, rock, and Greek traditional music, Locomondo gets audiences of all ages on their feet and dancing together.
With countless performances and countless miles logged traversing stages under their belts, they are experts at creating an uplifting mood with upbeat rhythms and beloved songs, such as “It’s Not Cold in Greece,” “Magic Carpet,” ”80s,” and “Rap, Ska, Reggae, Hip Hop, Dub, Ska, Reggae, One Drop.”
