The beggining

After a long journey that started back in 1998, it was 2016 that Cariocas family founded Odyssia Festival a hybrid mix of Afrika Burn and Coachella with the likes of DJ Harvey, Detroit Swindle, Jeremy Underground, Gilles Peterson, Body And Soul and Mike Huckaby to name a few. Along with a variety of art performances, installations, and all different kinds of spiritual experiences that one can explore while participating, Cariocas has hosted the festival’s first two editions, leading the Odyssians to destinations beyond their imagination and beyond time.
