KALA is a boutique festival which takes place in the coastal village of Dhermi, in the Albanian Riviera. Dhermi has some of the best beaches in Albania which form a perfect romantic atmosphere for this festival. The festival became a yearly hit after being first organized in 2018 and reaching worldwide attention. It has even been named one of the best summer beach festivals in Europe.
Despite the COVID-19 outbreak forcing the 2020 and 2021 cancellation, the organizers are even more motivated to make the 2022 edition of KALA the best edition ever. The festival is now planned for June 8-15 2022. The festival is a great way to combine great party nights in an amazing paradise location with exploring a remote location in Europe. During the day you have the opportunity to go on excursions to explore the surroundings, participate in activities or just dive into the greatest beaches. The afternoons are starting with relaxing music to get you in the mood while sipping your first cocktails and the evenings are full of amazing local and international acts to get your feet off the ground.
How To Get To KALA 2022?
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 KALA 2022 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 Airport 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.
How To Get Tickets For KALA 2022?
Due to the cancellation of KALA 2020 and Kala 2021, ticket holders who have not claimed a refund have had an earlier opportunity to claim their tickets for the 2022 edition so the ticket availability will be limited.
The advise is to grab your group of friends together and book the minute the tickets become available since the tickets usually sell out within hours. On the festival website you can also subscribe for the waiting list and to stay update on the ticket availability.
Where To Stay During KALA 2022?
All tickets for KALA 2022 include accommodation, so you don’t have to worry about booking rooms upfront or facing inflated prices after securing your tickets. When booking your tickets you will see several options for 3, 4 and 5 star accommodations, but most places will be for 2 or 3 people, so it’s best to already agree on a room split before the tickets become available so you can book immediately.
What Happens When KALA 2022 Gets Cancelled?
The festival organization is fully aware that we live in uncertain times due to COVID-19. Similar to 2020 and 2021, if KALA 2022 has to be cancelled all ticket holders will be entitled to tickets for a rescheduled date or next edition or opt for a full refund.
