Dhërmi, Albania
20 - 27 June

New festival Kala took to the Albanian Riveria for its first edition this year.

Uniting stunning views of natural surroundings with unspoiled beach settings, Kala’s first edition was certainly picturesque. The music programme was carefully curated to heighten the beatific atmosphere, with a line-up that skewed towards the Balearic. Hey, even Edi Rama, Albania’s Prime Minister, sent festival-goers free cans of beer. Magical.

Our creative director, Alfie Allen, was on the site to capture Kala’s debut – from the journey from Corfu to deep in the rave.
