One of Europe’s most beautiful festivals, GEM Fest, is back bigger than ever in 2020 and for the first time lands in Europe from August 7-9 on a paradise-like Greek island called Zakynthos.
The first wave of names to play this breathtaking beach escape includes Paul Van Dyk and ATB, Swanky Tunes, dOP (live), Onur Ozer, Andrea Ferlin, Marikhi, and Efim Kerbut amongst many more.
GEM Fest 2020 is set to be a very rare chance to get away to an unreal location and dance in safety. The country has been declared exempt from all travel bans because of its low number of COVID-19 cases, meaning you can head out and back without the need to self-isolate at either end.
The festival will have full safety measures in place, with testing for VIP guests and thermo-screening for all upon entry to the festival and much more. The message is loud and clear: Come to Greece.
Ready to recalibrate? At GEM Fest you will feel like you’re on the set of a high-budget film, starring you. The backdrop, the soundtrack. Fully alive, immersed in Greece’s wild natural beauty, world-class music, new friendships, and high vibes.
The location is mythic: the outside world is just discovering the Keri village of Zakynthos. It has sheer white cliffs dropping into seas of milky blue and sapphire, the wild beauty of ancient stony hills, pine and cedar forests, 1000-year old olive groves, agate beaches, a fishing harbor, coves with green pools and wind-sculpted boulders, luminous underwater caves, the iconic beach at Marathonisi Island and more that you can explore and discover on your trip.
Free busses from town, the airport, Laganas resort, and the Keri harbor will bring you to a mountain venue, with 360-degree views of forests, the village, the sea, a lighthouse, and voted one of the world’s best sunset spots. You will meet kindred souls, enjoy healing nature, free self-expression, and have the time and space for your own epiphany. Add in the world-famous food and healing qualities of the culture and landscapes, and you have an idyllic getaway.
GEM Fest was first created in 2015 on the beautiful beach of Black Sea pearl, Anaklia, and is about so much more than music. Now set up in Greece and planning to stay there for a whole decade, GEM always comes alive with sport, games, flea markets, and exhibitions that bustle with fun and culture.
It soon built up a reputation as one of the finest festivals in the region and one with a real focus on uniting world-class DJs with like-minded party animals. This year, you can expect three days and three nights of unlimited music and non-stop entertainment across some magical stages, with 100 artists in all at this multi-format and unforgettable electronic getaway on the breathtaking beaches of Zakynthos.
As for travel, Zakynthos International Airport Dionysios Solomos receives domestic flights from Athens and Kefalonia as well as numerous other locations around Europe. The airport is located about 5 km from Zakynthos Town and other popular locations, like Laganas, Tsilivi, and Kalamaki. Getting to Zakynthos is also accessible from the port of Killini via a one hour ferry. Once you arrive, there are plenty of hotels for every budget.
