Cariocas Beach in Greece will host a brand new festival this summer with DJ Harvey, Body & Soul and Gilles Peterson among the big names heading for the aptly named Odyssia

The undoubted highlight of the weekend will be a special 20th anniversary 10 hour set from the Body & Soul collective of Francois K, Joe Claussell and Danny Krivit who'll be bringing the spirit of New York House to the Corinthian coastline. 

Taking place between 31st August and 4th September at a private cove close to the beautiful coastal city of Loutraki (check out the resort below), the event will also feature Benji B, Josey Rebelle, Jon Rust and Detroit Swindle along with Vakula, Midland and Gigi Testa.

With acclaimed club partners such as Half Baked, Phonica and Deviation all involved, alongside a custom-made sound system, beach sessions and boat parties, this first edition of Odyssia looks to have staked a strong claim on this summer's European festival map.
