Dear Odyssee Lovers,
After 17 days of building up, 38 hours of partying, and 6 days of disassembling, the time has come for a report (just before the last cleanup).
Foremost we would like to thank all of you party people from all over the world. It is thanks to you that Odyssee keeps happening every year. Mainly all of you are the ones giving Odyssee its energetic direction and ensuring a collective and positive sense of common purpose by creating the many stories and encounters that make each Odyssee unique. With your contribution and your positive feedback, with your constructive criticism, and last but not least, with pre-sales which go very well each year, you give us a chance to improve and extensively build up Odyssee every coming edition. Again many thanks for making it what it is: an ecstatic festival for the senses.
Furthermore our thanks also goes to the entire team, the helpers of the set up and the dismantling, all the dj’s, live acts and their bookers, our electricity and light crew, the decorators, the laser-, the projection- and the visual teams. Thanks to all the artists and live painters, the body painters, the sound engineering crews, our light- and stage-equipment-company (for huge double truck loads of equipment), the venue’s staff (SEZ), our stage manager, all drivers, the bar crew, the drink suppliers and the sponsors, the construction-rental-company, our patient trade fair construction sponsor for all material-sponsoring, the “messe berlin” for 2000 square metres of carpet, the carpet tape sponsor, our 2 professional carpet workers, our beloved carpet inlay worker, the x-berg/friedrichshain construction and environmental Office, the fire protection inspector, the fire department crew, our first aid crew, our inner- and outdoors security team, our box office crew, our toilet service team and the cleaning crew, the one and only coat check team, chaishop & cocktailbar, Mrs. “lost & found”, Mr. “final clean”, all flyer distributors, our two tireless bill posters, and all our known and un-known supporters all over the planet!!
We expressed a special praise to the inner circle of our staff as we asked them to be on board again for the next edition.
Let love flow, even in the hardest and most stressful situations.
We hope to see you all again next year!
With ever flowing love,
Your Odyssee team
