The yearly ION Festival is more than a music festival. It’s a week long music holiday in the village of Dhermi, on the Albanian Riviera, with 3.000 like-minded people.
The week will be filled with new experiences, activities and excursions to fully enjoy a holiday with great parties of electronic music. For a unique festival atmosphere there will be several stages at amazing locations, including the best beaches a submarine bunker and a castle.
How To Get To ION Festival?
The festival is taking place in Dhermi, a coastal village located between Vlora and Saranda.
If you are arriving from abroad, the best way to reach ION Festival is to fly to the Greek island of Corfu first. The festival organization is arranging transfers directly from Corfu to the festival locations. These transfers will include a boat trip from the Port of Corfu to Albania and a bus transfer to your festival accommodation. More details about the transfers will be shared in due time on the festival website.
Many visitors combine the festival with a trip to other places, so in that case it might be better to arrange your own transportation. If you’re flying in via Corfu you could take the normal ferry from Corfu to Saranda and rent a car from there to have the flexibility to go to other places in Albania before or after the festival. The drive from Saranda to Dhermi itself is already a treat, with many great beaches, historic villages and viewpoints on the way. Alternatively, there are also several mini-buses (furgons in Albanian) going from Saranda to Dhermi.
