“Desert Age: A Rock ‘n’ Roll Scene History” (Principal Stage – 18.00) [Gimme Shelter Film Festival]



With its roots in the street, Street Mode set off initially as a series of events in open, public spaces, such as Thermi Square (2009-2013) and the Port of Thessaloniki (2014-2016) in order to present all the aspects of street culture in a common effort.

As street culture, we define a sub-culture developing mainly in urban areas. It is expressed freely through arts, such as graffiti and breakdance, but also through sports, such as skateboarding and parkour, and is represented by the sounds of hip-hop, punk rock, heavy rock και ska / reggae / dub music.
