Under the slogan “With the KKE, for Socialism, so that the light vanquish the darkness”, inspired by communist poet Nazim Hikmet, the central events of the 49th festival of the Communist Youth of Greece (KNE), commonly known as KNE-Odigitis Festival, will take place on 21-23 September 2023 in Athens.

The festival, which is traveling in many Greek cities throughout July and August, includes numerous political and cultural events.

The festivities will culminate on 21, 22 and 23rd of September at Athens' Tritsis Park. The General Secretary of the CC of the KKE Dimitris Koutsoumbas and the Secretary of KNE Thodoris Kotsantis will be the speakers at the major political event that is due to be held on Saturday 23 September.   

Like every year, some of Greece's most popular music artists are going to participate in the festival. 

Being one of the country's most significant annual cultural events, the KNE-Odigitis festival, organized by the Communist Youth of Greece, spans a history of almost 50 years. The 1st festival of KNE and her newspaper "Odigitis" took place on September 1975, just months after the collapse of the 7-year old military dictatorship.
