Odyssia Festival entered its 3d edition with the 3d EYE theme.
The 3rd Eye Edition inspired us and enlightened the deeper paths of our souls, while the Odyssian journey continued with a new adventure.
The "3D EYE" invited us to experience a journey to empathize empowerment, encourage insight and highlight intuition as a reflexive tool for managing the originals of life-style instincts. Odyssians headed to the discovery of the roads that lead to the awakening of the Spirit of the Species.
The main vehicle was once again the highest immaterial form of art, music, and accompanying vehicles, the visual arts and alternative forms of entertainment, the actions take place in a wonderful natural environment, in the picturesque seaside fishing village located in the bay of Schinos, under the imposing Geranian mountains overlooking the Alkyon Islands.
Through three separate musical-themed days organized to be experienced by the visitor as part of a complete 3-day trip, the festival explored the origin of electronic dance music culture and travels from its deep roots lost in the African deserts, to the most contemporary space cosmic sounds expressing the ecology of the Universe, with the help and guidance of some of the most prolific and popular music producers, Djs and selectors of the international as well as the wider Greek music scene.
2 Legends and 2 Stages equals Odyssia Festival 4.
Honored and blessed to share the iconic Cariocas DJ Booth and vibrate its stunning Soundsystem with 2 LEGENDS: Timmy Regisford and Carl Craig.
The fourth edition was dedicated to the pure electronic dance music with the legends Timmy Regisford and Carl Craig's exclusive live performances with the magnificent views of the surrounding Gerania mountains and sunsets behind the Alcyonides islands in the Corinthian Bay and Schinos Bay breathing within.
Space Odyssey marked the collaboration of two iconic venues of the Athenian dance culture, Cariocas Beach Bar and Steam as it featured the legendary pioneer of Detroit Techno Carl Craig’s giving an amazing 5hour performance full that surprised even the man himself.
