Each municipal government has a website, often with large sections in English. Each smaller local government area or dimos also has a website with local information, these are also good sources for Crete news.
Each local government area will create dynamic programs for their summer festival and place information and programs on their respective websites.
From June to September there are exquisite options to choose from all over the island, from musical concerts of all flavours, to art exhibitions, street theatre and plays, beach concerts, to concerts in the old forts with the atmosphere of summer seeping into the performances.
