Athena is a ska punk band from Istanbul, founded in the 1980s by twin brothers Hakan en Gökhan Özoguz. The band is very popular in Turkey and their song 'Holigan' is still a favourite in football stadiums. In their homeland they did supports for The Rolling Stones, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Beastie Boys, and were asked to represent their country on the Eurovision Song Festival in 2004, where they suprisingly ended up in fourth place. It's been a while since they played Amsterdam, so time for a return!
