On June 24, the Great Lawn Stage at this year’s SNF Nostos will welcome British R&B-pop sensation Jorja Smith—performing for the first time in Greece and on the heels of her headline appearance at the Primavera Sound festival in Barcelona. The international lineup of back-to-back performances also includes Greek-Australian rapper Masked Wolf and local favorite Good Job Nicky.
Over the past three years, Jorja Smith has been universally celebrated around the world for her evocative songwriting, powerful delivery, pure emotion, and unbridled talent as a young woman navigating her way through the world. Smith has graced multiple magazine covers, performed at awards ceremonies and on late night TV, and sold out shows across the globe, surpassing over one billion global streams. Her 2019 hit single ‘Be Honest’ featuring Burna Boy (the headliner of SNF Nostos 2021), has become her biggest song to date with almost 250 million streams worldwide.
Be Right Back is the first body of work from Smith since her critically acclaimed, Mercury Prize-nominated 2019 debut album Lost & Found, for which she won her second BRIT Award for Best Female Solo Artist and earned herself a Best New Artist nomination at the GRAMMY Awards.
“It’s called ‘Be Right Back’ because it’s just something I want my fans to have right now—this isn’t an album and these songs wouldn’t have made it. If I needed to make these songs, then someone needs to hear them too,” Smith says of the project.
Greek artist-phenom Good Job Nicky opens the show, followed by Masked Wolf, one of the most talked about artists on the global rap scene. After the live performances, the sky above SNF Nostos will light up once again with a spectacular drone show, followed by a DJ set at the SNFCC Agora, accompanied by stunning laser projections on the iconic SNFCC building
