About Us

Spilios Tzemos, born and raised in Peloponnese, is a full-time music journalist [Full Member of Greek Federation of Journalists - ESPIT / Full Member of International Federation of Journalists – IFJ] in Athens, Greece, for both mainstream and alternative music scenes. With a vast amount of music experience behind him, Spilios is the Founder and Head of “Alterground”, an established cultural events organization that holds an average of 30-50 international gigs per year, at several venues with capacities which vary from 200 to 3000 people + various media publications. Alterground is the most productive alternative-underground events promoter in the country, as it also organizes at least 15 tours across Greece per year with established foreign artists and all of its productions are run with the utmost respect toward the artist and audience.  

Spilios possesses a library of records which contains over 40,000 albums from the period of WWII right up to the music scene at present, as well as an up-to-date database of local and international music concerning both mainstream and underground areas. He was educated at C.A.S.E. – G.C.E. School in Economics, Polytechnic of Central London in Business Information Technology, European Educational Organization in “Mass Media – major in radio”, Experimental School of Artistic Photography in “History – Aesthetics – Workmanship of Artistic Photography”.

He began his venture into the music scene in high school when he produced  his own school fanzine and piloted his own local radio station. At only 16 years old, he moved into more professional fields when he was employed as a permanent contributor of culture and entertainment for a monthly news and entertainment magazine called “Flash”. He gained experience and knowledge of the media market in urban areas, working in news and entertainment radio as a flow and broadcast manager outside of Athens for “Channel 24”, “Achaia 103.8” and “Prisma FM 94.6”. He moved to Athens accepting a proposal to work on the daily Production & Presentation of Music & Speech Programme for “ROCK FM 96.8” music radio, establishing himself in the music industry and becoming a permanent resident of Athens.
