Odyssia Festival 2016
31st August – 4th September 2016
30th August (Opening party) – 5th September (Closing Party)
Cariocas Beach, Greece
This Summer the spotlight shines on Greece, sensed out by Odyssia who, brought together by Need2soul, Cariocas and NEUHM, will launch its inaugural festival 30th August.
With the globally minded DJ Harvey and universally influential Gilles Peterson amongst first names announced, along with the spirited, rarely refined Body & Soul collective of François K, Joe Claussell and Danny Krivit who will be doing a vey special 10 hour set in celebration of their 20th Anniversary. Odyssia promises the most informed curation on the circuit for its finely crafted launch.
Trailblazing this new and stunning setting, Odyssia is an adventure boasting beauty and artistry from purveyors of pure, experiential electronics – not merely at the peak of the game but changing it. The prodigious selector Benji B – protégé to Gilles Peterson – is among tastemakers from every flavour of music, including Rinse FM’s reputed jam-stress Josey Rebelle and NTS Radio’s navigator of club sound Jon Rust. Amsterdam’s auteurs of Motown to modern dance in Detroit Swindle, Detroit’s chosen re-creator Kyle Hall, intrepid Italian Gigi Testa, and authentic and technical techno of Vakula, Midland and more show the uncompromising direction of a festival ahead of the curve.
All the while Odyssia hewn this new path it wears its heritage in a host of global, first-generation acts with Boo Williams, Maurice Faulton and Delano Smith on point.
An accomplished, pan-European team of promoters have crossed the corners of the continent with a discerning eye and ear for detail, to inaugurate a music holiday intimately piecing together an alluring electronic collective cut from only the most credible of the underground. Hence Discodromo and Invisible City, Piranahead and Sunshine Pedro or Lovefingers and Thris Tan; the top tier of the lineup is built on a base of entrenched experimenters scouted with know-how from the niches of Europe and beyond. With acclaimed club partners such as Half Baked, Phonica and Deviation, a custom-made sound system, beach sessions and boat parties that will daily stretch beyond sunset, this prophetic first edition has staked a prime spot on the festival map from which to entrance every goer.
