Key characteristics of Halo Productions which distinguish & ensure its successful activity are the enthusiasm & long field experience of our fellow partners, their persistence in offering high quality services and their firm collaboration with some of the best companies within the entertainment industry in Benelux.
Who is behind Halo productions;
We are a team that consists of three good friends & partners; Alex does the production, Sofia the marketing and PR, and Kostas the production and HR.
How & when did you decide to start organizing music events with Greek artists in the Netherlands?
It was an idea that we were talking and planning for a year since we saw that there were no high scale Greek events being made in the Netherlands. Each one of us has the knowledge and experience on his or her field, behalf that we also share the will to present a quality production for our visitors so they can live an unforgettable and unique night. With all these factors, we decided to follow our instinct and founded Halo Production on November 2013.
It was easier or harder than you had imagined? What did you need except willing to make an idea, reality?
Well, starting a new company with organizing such big scale events was not easy. We did have a lot of meetings with each other, exchanged information, shared ideas and looked at our market. We did a lot of research in advance before we took the step to do so and of course invested a lot of money in the idea. We wanted to do it correctly from the beginning and so we followed every guideline needed to make a company like this.
What style of music you will get involed and what is your audience?
We generally want to bring popular singers and bands from Greece, whether this being a pop, folk artist or some well known rock band to even a Rebetika night with quality singers or famous DJs. Although the three of us are different in many ways, we all share the passion for quality events and most of all want to give the service to the Greeks living in the Netherlands but also share our Greek music and culture with the Dutch.
How was your first event in the Netherlands? Any surprices?
The first event went reasonably well. We wanted to try with a well known scale singer and we must say we were satisfied with the results. People who came left happy and we made sure they all got their money’s worth. Being the first production and people not knowing you was the only and biggest obstacle. That’s why we wanted to make it as perfect as possible, because you never get a second chance to give a good first impression.
Which favorite artists, you would like to bring in the Netherlands, regardless of the kind of music they play?
As we all have different taste in music, it’s hard to answer this question. We don’t want to bring singers for us, we want to bring the singers that the people want and like. That is who we do it for at the end.

With whom do you cooporate best, with the Greeks here, the Greeks back in Greece or the Dutch?
We have to say that our motto is “Greek events, Dutch production”. We appreciate a lot how the Dutch work and believe with the combination of Greek way of thinking we can achieve a lot. With the production, marketing, and locations we prefer to work with Dutch. However with the service and hospitality department, we do work with Greeks who understand our crowd better.
