Raise a beer glass

Paphos will open a beer festival on Friday at the Mediaeval Castle where the beer will be flowing and the music will be loud until Sunday.

The three-day event will offer a wide variety of beers from Cyprus and around the world. But it is not only about the love of beer, it is also about the love of entertainment. We can expect a variety of bands to perform live as well as some dance groups moving to the beat.

The big concert of the festival will be on Sunday when the Greek band Locomondo will also be raising a pint or two – when they are not playing their musical instruments that is.

Locomondo, a seven-member band, is the first to fuse the Caribbean sound together with Greek musical elements and Greek lyrics, producing a fresh sound and a new approach to Caribbean and Greek music.

The group is also the first Greek band to record in Jamaica. Their success has expanded beyond Greece and they have given performances in Germany and the Netherlands with great success. They have also entered the Radio France Internationale charts with a tune from their first album Stin Athina, showcasing the unique nature of their music.

The ticket price to the festival is €10 at the gate and €7 presale for Friday and Saturday, and for Sunday’s event tickets are €17 presale and €20 at the gate. There is a free pint of beer with every ticket and a Paphos Beer Festival collectible plastic cap.

Every ticket registered at will automatically be entered into a competition to win various prizes like t-shirts, baseball caps and more.
