After an inaugural edition that will live long in the memory, we are over the moon to be returning to Dhërmi for the second edition of ION. Building on the foundations laid in 2022, we hope to further our artistic vision, taking into account our core values – Dance, Explore, Connect – as we land back in Albania. From the music policy and line-up to wellness and local activities, we will continue to offer a one-of-a-kind event that is not just a music festival, but a community experience worth sharing. All situated in one of Europe’s most idyllic locations, this will be another incredible week in our hidden paradise.
From 6-13 September, Dhërmi will be transformed into a sanctuary for music fans from around the world, with the varying strains of underground electronic music represented across the site. All the stages from last year will be in full effect, including the unforgettable experiences of The Canyon and The Fort, truly two of the most beautiful raving spots we’ve witnessed.
While the full line-up is yet to be released, we can promise you that this year will continue our forward-thinking approach to bookings, as we look to build community through collaborations with collectives and fellow party brands. We will also continue to encourage DJs to play multiple sets across the festival, allowing them to forge a personal connection with the unique ION setting and crowd. All of this will contribute to a bespoke festival experience, tailor-made for those with a deep appreciation for all corners of music.
