For its 3rd live event, Sea Sounds Summer Festival welcomes Music Producer & Journalist George Dimitrakopoulos, for an original journey into the sounds of cinematic music and soundtracks.

As a Music Producer and a DJ, he has opened the concerts of Alexander Robotnick, Chromatics and Maria Minerva in Athens while he has worked as a resident DJ at the Onassis Foundation’s Hytra Restaurant, but also at many thematic parties, such as Street Food and Tunes of “deBop” and club nights of doc.tv and Klik Records.
