Entry Requirements: 18+
TOUR UPDATE: We are very sorry to announce that our upcoming western European tour has to be postponed due to the pandemic, the complications with travel and venue capacities in various territories in Europe. We are working hard with the promoters to reschedule all tour dates and will be announcing them as soon as possible. For now please note that all tickets will remain valid for these new dates. Again, we are very sorry but unfortunately this is out of our control. We can’t thank you enough for the love and support ❤️. To clarify this is for all September shows, we are still playing all Greece 🇬🇷 shows from the 22nd to the 27th of August.
The experiential music of City of the Sun is the sound you didn’t know you were missing. New York City’s powerhouse trio flip the perception of instrumental music, attracting a whole new generation to the genre.
Formed in 2011, City of the Sun features guitarists John Pita, Avi Snow, and percussionist Zach Para. The band’s sound has an array of influences including indie rock, American folk, flamenco, and blues; it’s been called worldly, cinematic, a mix between Rodrigo y Gabriela and Explosions in the Sky.
COS has since been established as significant players in the post-rock sphere. They’ve sold out New York’s top indie venues Brooklyn Steel, Irving Plaza, Bowery Ballroom and Gramercy Theater; toured with Peter Bjorn & John, G.Love, STS9, and Thievery Corporation; were featured emerging artists at Panorama NYC, Billboard’s Hot 100, Firefly, Bottle Rock Napa music festivals; and scored “The C Word” documentary soundtrack (directed by Meghan O’Hara and narrated by Morgan Freeman).
After completing two European tours including major sold-out shows in Athens, Greece, the band released UNTITLED EP. Lead track “Perfect Instance” has gained 18 million Spotify streams to date, contributing to over 70 million plays on the platform overall.
