For a Brief Moment, the Drones Upstaged the Stars

September 08 2021

Each day at SNF Nostos was a magical experience, and in the evenings, the magic spread to the skies in a joyous celebration of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation’s (SNF) 25th anniversary.

For the first time ever in Greece, hundreds of drones equipped with LEDs took to the air to offer a show totally unlike anything before it. The night sky above the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) became the backdrop for bright constellations, a spinning globe, beating hearts, and dancers who followed the rhythm of the music with absolute precision and grace.

An integral part of the show was the crowd, who watched the choreography unfold in the sky, fascinated, and eagerly awaited each new formation—reacting with their own perfectly synchronized show of delight.

The drone show was designed and implemented by Skymagic, with local support from View Master Events.
