    Athens Fringe Festival 2011, the Greek capital's annual
international arts festival, will take place from June 20-26 at the
municipality's Technopolis events center and other locations around
the city, with the 2011 theme being "Smile in the mind".

    The third annual Festival is organised by the Synthesis Media
Company in collaboration with the renowned Edinburgh Festival Fringe,
the biggest off-Festival on the planet.

    Adopting the successful Fringe format, the Festival aims to
present the work of young, upcoming Greek and European artists
representing all art forms.

    Athens Fringe Festival is an open-to-all celebration of the arts,
a true off-Athens Festival.

    The organisers invite artists, visitors and volunteers alike to
think about what makes them happy and be inspired by that.

    All forms of art have a place in the Athens Fringe Festival, from
music, dance and theater to literature, crafts, video art and
installations.

    Fringe is much more than a festival, it is a social network, but
unlike the Internet social networks, it is not virtual but living,
with live actions and interventions in the everday life of the city.

    A novelty this year will be a double-decker bus that will take
artists around the cities of Athens for "lightning" performances,
bringing the Festival to the public itself.
