Peace and FlowerPower...

The hippie festival of Matala on the south coast of Crete is coming up!

The third hippie festival on Crete, "Matala Beach Festival 2013", will take place 21st-24th of June and as usual there will be a lot of fun happenings in the wonderful village these days! Lots of music from the '60s and '70s, beachparties (non-stop?!), hippie bazaars, exhibitions, children's fun park and more!

"Today is Life, Tomorrow never comes"...!

The very first thing you can join is the street painting of the small street/s in Matala. The decoration of the road/s will take place on Sunday the 16th of June.

Adults and children, professionals and amateurs, Graffiti artists, friends of colours... Everybody who like to take part in the Matala Street Painting is welcome!

Colours are provided by the festival, you just need to bring brushes and your fantasy.

The Matala Beach Festival is a free festival - no entrance or parking fees! It includes more than 40 live concerts, lots of events and activities as well as 4 unforgettable sunsets...!

Matala has become famous after the hippies occupied the caves from the New Stone age. There are many fantastic caves there, but there are also many other beautiful sculptures and creations in these limestone cliffs:

I found this picture at the blog Exploring Crete and there are many more pictures of sculptures made in the cliffs of Matala.

Don't miss the Matala Beach Festival if you're nearby!
