Last year’s edition saw 2000 fans from over 50 countries converge in the quiet village of Dhërmi, Albania, nestled on the shores of the Ionian Sea. Sixty artists performed across five, picturesque stages from the afternoon to dawn.
Taking place in high summer between June 18th and June 23rd, Explorations 2020 builds on the success of 2019, promising an even more diverse lineup for sonic explorers and a wider range of community and wellness activities.
With all tickets for the festival only available as part of an accommodation package, Explorations encourages revelers to fully immerse themselves within the local community.
Attendees will eat some of the best seafood the Mediterranean has to offer, swim with dolphins in crystal-clear water, and dance to cutting edge melodic sounds courtesy of Anjunadeep’s thoughtfully curated lineup.
Ticket packages begin at £205 for five nights accommodation and festival pass, with additional extras such as boat transfers from Corfu, gong baths, dining experiences and unforgettable afternoon dance parties in the jaw-dropping surrounds of Gjipe canyon.
Dhërmi, Albania is one of the Mediterranean’s best-kept secrets, travel gurus Lonely Planet describing it as one of the best destinations for budget travelers. ‘Explorers’ will experience an unforgettable five nights of community and discovery for much less than the cost of other destination festivals in the region.
