Inaugural Greek Festival Just An Hour From Athens Launches In Idyllic Fisherman’s Village
Caricos, is a name famed amongst Greeks for having an 18 year legacy devoted to dance music. The bar is nestled in the beautiful village of Schinos, located on a idyllic bay just an hour south of Athens.
The bar promises to make this inaugural festival an event to remember, including a cast of recognisable and revered names within the industry: DJ Harvey, who two years ago was awarded with an outstanding contribution to music award, looks to seal his legendary status with an appearance here. Gilles Peterson joins Harvey across the seven day event, bringing with him his vast catalogue of sounds that have made him a household name since his pirate radio origins. The Radio 1 theme continues further down the line up with Benji B, regular listeners to his show will expect an exciting set jumping across various genres.
Caricos looks to make the most of its intimate capacity (2000) and the venue takes pride in its ability to deliver a unique experience, its heritage belongs to its sound with Odyssia promising memorable sets during both the day and beyond the sunset.
The festival takes place across 5 days at the end of August and into September (30th to 5th) with sets being set up on land at sea, Odyssia looks to offer a genuine, intriguing alternative in the congested world of electronic festivals.
