A new dance paradise
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.

Important ticket information
All tickets include accommodation and festival wristband. This is to avoid overinflated rates during the festival week and to ensure sustainable prices for Kala for this year and beyond.
Most of the accommodation options hold 2-3 people. Speak to your group and decide how you are going to split the rooms in advance so you know what to search for. Eg 3 rooms with 2 people in each room.
You can book with just a £50 deposit per person and pay the rest at any time before the final balance date. The deposit must be paid by the lead passenger. Once the booking has been created, each person will be able to pay their balance separately. Make the necessary arrangements so the lead passenger has everyone's deposits ready.
This is what a magical week in the Riviera looks like
Imagine venturing into a remote part of the European continent to find a little slice of paradise filled with open air stages by the sea, excellent sound systems, live music, extended DJ sets into sunrise and a friendly and intimate atmosphere.
You will meet the loveliest people from all over the globe, dance together, explore an untouched coastline and enjoy a summer escapade surrounded by mind-blowing scenery, welcoming locals, friendly atmosphere, and pure joy.
We hope you can share this wonderful experience with us next summer!

How to get to Kala
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.
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.
Please check the transfer times (below) 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.
