The Santorini Volcano is “erupting” again on September 21st, 2019

Fireworks in Santorini

Following the previous years’ tradition, Santorini island will remember the eruptions that made it what it is today. This year’s “Ifestia Festival” (or the “Volcanoes Festival”) will be again held on the 21st of September, 2019, with a spectacular compilation of fireworks and fires that will make the volcano “erupt” in a simulation of the real volcanic eruption that formed the island.

Each year the show varies sightly, making it a unique experience. The show usually begins with small fires on the volcanic islands (Palaia and Nea Kameni) that resemble the melting lava. This is followed by hundreds of fireworks exploding in the sky, one after the other, each one bigger than the one before, leaving the whole caldera in awe.

Following the depiction of the explosion, an established music event will take place in Fira, the content of which will be announced soon.
