If you don’t have summer plans yet I would suggest putting Albania on your wish list. On top of being a beautiful country the boarders the Mediterranean Sea, they also have the Kala Festival. It will run from June 10th to the 17th in Dhërmi. It has just about it all featuring live performances, DJ sets, and wellness programs.

When you are not listening to music, there are plenty of activities and wellness events set up. Take a break from dancing and explore the beautiful beaches, take yoga classes, experience gong baths, enjoy beach massages, as well as water activities including paddle boarding and kayaking. Depending on what you want to do, there are specific accommodation packages you can select with your ticket.

The “paradise” festival will have Live performances by Jocelyn Brown, 808 State, London Afrobeat Collective, and many more. DJ sets wise, there will be a few exclusive 5-hour sets. Moodymann, Palms Trax, Young Marco, and Joy Orbison will play their finest beats.

You are going to need as much energy as possible if you want to see the sunrise while the music plays on in the background. At all times of the day there is stuff to do and music runs till 6am daily. In addition to experiencing the DJ sets, you are encouraged to explore all the Albanian Riviera has to offer. Grama Bay, Blue Eye Spring, Ksamil Beach, and Gjipe are just a few places you will want to look up before going.

Early bird and tier 1 tickets have already sold out but there is another wave of ticket releases coming soon. If you want to attend Kala Festival make sure to sign up for the waitlist here!
