SEASON 2020 – CELEBRATING 22 YEARS of FUN & FUNCTION

Odyssia Festival | 20 & 21 June 2020

Upon the bay of the idyllic fisherman's village Schinos lies a secluded, hand-crafted beach bar with an 18-year legacy as stunning as its surroundings. Every year we design a new theme to inspire the experience of joining an array of artists, DJs, producers, selectors and influencers on both land and sea.

Crafted by the minds behind Cariocas' House On The Beach, Odyssia Festival promises to intimately piece together their favorite music and art collectives in an alluring location only fit for the best. Beach sessions, workshops, boat parties, and family-friendly gamified experiences, stretch beyond the sunset each day, forming the ideal place to lose yourself into and the perfect soundtrack to vibrate the dancefloor of life.

“ With a strong will for radical expression, creativity, forward-thinking, and an ecological approach on humanity and the traces to leave behind, the living beings involved with Odyssia and inspired from a unique ancient epic poem, like so many have done so in the past, and share the vision of identifying the real purpose of life and the destination where one can find the one and only truth. A destination beyond time. For this to happen each one of us must first go through his own Odyssia, explore, discover and realize, what truly empowers the journey of life. Discover the power of true love.”

Odyssia Festival is open to partnerships aiming to host future editions in other parts of our beautiful world. Driven by its international character and a global mind set, the festival offers 360 support and know how that allows potential co-organizers to secure a successful launch. The possibilities are endless, the only limit is your imagination.

1st Blues on the Beach Festival | 18, 19 & 20 September | Soon to be confirmed

Blues is perhaps the only music genre in the world surrounded by such an expanding audience base.

You may have often heard people say that they hear and like different kinds of music but in the end, they would all admit being listening to the blues.

Live bands, workshops, music fans, artisans and instruments that love to serve and be inspired from the blues, are paying tribute to the pentatonic scale.

The music scale that shaped modern music as we know it today. Each year we aim to delve deeper into the phenomenon of blues music and its history, that began to be written in the American South in the 1870s and continues to be written today, remaining more fresh and vibrant than ever.
