Hallouminati—Tonight is Heavy

Based in Nottingham via London via Cyprus, they come armed with a barrage of bouzoukis, brass, violins, synths and deranged beats. Hallouminati toured UK venues in  2019 with a fiesta of new tunes and are set to tour again in 2020.

Delicately mixed are the gritty realms of skankable world punk with the traditional Greek rembetiko vibes for a diverse and unforgettable live show that connects with every soul and spirit in the audience. Young or old, introvert or extrovert, Hallouminati will their arm over your shoulder, hand you an Ouzo and have the whole venue throwing their limbs all over before you can shout ‘Opa!’

Hallouminati have been scurrying around the UK’s music scene since 2010, leaving a trail of sweaty dancers, grinning audiences and a faint whiff of olive oil. Since the beginning, their musical reputation has made a dent on the live circuit from gigs at Spiegeltents, boat parties on the Thames, and countless UK and European tours. They have played with the same intensity and integrity busking on the streets of Amsterdam or the 2012 Olympics as they have to the huge crowds at the biggest UK festivals including Boomtown, Solfest, Bestival, Isle of Wight and many more. This reputation has been maintained by putting on varied, accessible shows tailored for the event and getting the crowd involved at all times.
