Alongside underground leaning acts such as Lamine, dOP (Live), Onur Ozer as well as respected local talent K.Atou, George Seragos and Mr. Roussos. With only 50% of the line up announced so far there’s plenty more to come, and with previous editions line ups anything to go by you can expect Big Room, Techno, House and Minimal artists to follow ensuring all tastes are covered.

Inland you can hike in Askos Stone Park, a stunning expanse of nature and local wildlife. Or discover the local history in the surrounding towns and villages.

For accommodation options we offer our tent city which we call “harmony village” , besides that Zakynthos has plenty of options of accomodation, from hostel dorms to luxury villas and even luxury yachts floating next to the festival. During the three days and nights we provide free buses to the venue. Starting from the airport, ports and the different resorts along the coast line, ensuring you can travel safely to and from GEM.
