Tonight: Barış Manço Memorial Concert

This is kind of last-minute, but if you’re into Turkish music from the ’60s and ’70s and you’re looking for something fun to do this evening, there’s a Barış Manço memorial concert on at the AKM. Manço was one of the biggest Turkish popular music stars of all time, and after his sudden and unexpected death in 1999, his work has been celebrated even more intensely. He died on 1 February, and so the Antalya Municipal Band and Orchestra are performing in tribute this evening (Monday, 2 February) to mark the anniversary.

The AKM is the venue next to the Glass Pyramid, close to the 5M Migros roundabout and across the dual carriageway from where the new stadium is being built. The concert is free and open to the public, and starts at 8 p.m.
