The Forest’s sounds are a camping festival in mountainous Phocis, measuring hopefully 13 years of life. The thought of the organizers was to bring into contact with nature, with the woods of their homeland and their sounds, the youth of the region, but also the visitors. Over the years, the festival has evolved into multi-faceted event, which is now the reference point for the youth not only of Phocis, but also of the whole Central Greece and the wider region.
Young and old, youth and of course, everyone who feels young, climb in the last weekend of July in the mountains of Phocis, where took place the Sounds of the Forest, in recent years, in Agia Triada of– in 201, about 5000 campers are counted! Musical performances and concerts, art exhibitions, show graffiti, art workshops and outdoor activities: hiking, games, alternative tourism, environmental actions, even if motor racing and other extreme sports!
The Sounds of the Forest have hosted important Greek artists in previous years, as Lavrendis Machairitsas, Locomondo, John Haroulis, Natasha Bofiliou, Lakis Papadopoulos, Blue, Eleonora Zouganeli and Thanasis Papakonstantinou. In parallel with the well known and famous members, the aim of the Sounds of the Forest is to be given time and space to young artists from the region to present their work to visitors.
In the glade of Agia Triada, into the firs, are erected facilities for the Sounds of the Forest, which contains from restaurant and secretarial support to a full-service clinic and pharmacy, as well as scenes of the participants.
