The spectacular building complex of Peiraios 260 used to house the Tsaousoglou Office Furniture Factory. The premises came under the control of the National Bank of Greece, which made some of the site available for the Athens Festival. The architecture is typical of 1970s industrial buildings. The Tsaousoglou site consists of four large buildings/warehouses, all of which have now been given listed status by order of the Ministry of Culture. This will be the first time the complex hosts a music event of such magnitude.
