The Mediterranean – Radio Festival of Sitia was organized for the first time in 2016 in Chlouverakis Grove after the collaboration of the Friends of Music Association and the Municipality of Sitia, with the kind support of Ross Daly’s Music Workshop Lavirinthos. Since 2014, the event has become an affair of Sitia’s Development Association, the Municipality of Sitia and the Friends of Music Association of Sitia with the cooperation of CosmosArte.
