Kala Festival returns to Albania for a 4th year in 2023!

The original Albanian festival returns to the sun-drenched beaches of the Riviera with an eclectic selection of DJs and live acts including NU GENEA, MARCELLUS PITTMAN, CC:DISCO!, MAFALDA and very special 5hr B2B sets from HUNEE & ANTAL and MOXIE & LEON VYNEHALL.

With a schedule of boat excursions, wellness workshops, and enjoyable holiday activities, Kala will once again provide plenty of action away from the dancefloor to complement the pleasantly unhurried musical offering.

In a fast-changing festival landscape, Kala offers a new way of experiencing a summer festival, pairing a beach holiday at an exciting offbeat destination, an intimate and friendly festival atmosphere, and a curation that sets it apart from its peers with a healthy amount of live music, extended 5h sets by the headline DJs, and an eclectic yet coherent selection of talent across decades and genres.

Emphasizing quality over quantity, the top DJs on the bill are invited to play extended sets, with HUNEE & ANTAL and MOXIE & LEON VYNEHALL filling two out of the five all-night slots. Other top-rated sectors booked to play at Kala’s beachside stages include MARCELLUS PITTMAN, CC:DISCO!, PRINS THOMAS, PAULA TAPE, YU SU, SECRETSUNDAZE and MAURICE FULTON who will bring their signature eclectic selections, while the likes of LENA WILLIKENS, VLADIMIR IVKOVIC and CIEL will cover harder sounds. Rounding off the bill, BRIAN NOT BRIAN, JAN SCHULTE, JAMIE TILLER, JOHN GÓMEZ, LAUREN HANSOM and NICK THE RECORD will soundtrack the iconic Gjipe stage, situated at the end of an impressive canyon only accessible by boat.

A wide selection of onsite restaurants and bars will be keeping festival goers fuelled throughout the week, offering a range of delicious Mediterranean food, including plenty of mouthwatering locally sourced vegetables and fresh seafood.
