Dhërmi, Albania

Kala is a boutique festival that takes place in Dhërmi, a stunning beach location on the Albanian Riviera.

During the day you can enjoy paradisiacal beaches, excursions to explore the unspoilt surroundings, wellness activities, heavenly food and laid-back music selections.

At night, our seaside venues host a cherry-picked selection of DJs and live acts that will keep you dancing under the stars until the early hours.

Expect a wide range of quality music, blissful beach days, an intimate atmosphere and the best crowd of music lovers and welcoming locals.



An eclectic selection of artists connected by spirit rather than genre

All tickets include accommodation and festival wristband. This is to avoid overinflated rates during the festival week, ensure sustainable prices for Kala for this year and beyond, and provide a smoother festival experience for our guests.

Having a comfy bed to rest after a little too much dancing is one of the aspects that make Kala different from other festivals. There are options for everyone, from cozy 3* hotels to exotic beach huts and swish 5* hotels, all at excellent prices.

How to get to Kala

Asset 18.png

Dhërmi can be accessed by car from Tirana airport, or by boat from Corfu airport. We recommend coming in via Corfu, which enjoys lower flight prices and an easier, more picturesque journey to Dhërmi.

Festival transfers

We organise boat transfers from the Corfu port to Himarë for passport control, then the final leg of the trip is done by bus. You will be dropped at a transfer point near your accommodation in Dhërmi.

Transfer times


Please check the transfer times before booking your flights. The transfers sell out every year. The sooner you book them the more options you will find available. If you are arranging your own transfers keep in mind time zones differences. Albania is 1h behind Greece.
