This year they have stopped the 'Greek night' on sundays. It was a success for several years, but the last years there was 'Greek night' every evening somewhere in Kokkari. These evenings are depending on the local peoples participation, and seven days a week is much too much.

Now they have 'Live music evenings' every thursday and sunday instead, and this seems to be an even greater success. Hopefully this will continue for some years (until too many has copied the idea).
At the square they have had live music. This was very popular until it was stopped by the owner of a
nearby bar (not at the square). The owner claimed that the bar lost customers to the square because people stayed there. So now the music are beginning very late (when the guests are leaving the area).
