Tomi Gjikuria

As the organiser of the popular Turtle Fest, which takes place close to ION at nearby Drymades Beach, Tomi GJ is one of Albania’s biggest evangelists for underground electronic music. His festival has attracted artists such as Gus Gus and Sébastien Léger, and as a DJ he’s also taken his place alongside some of the biggest acts in house and techno. At 2019’s Kala festival he warmed up for Derrick May, a set that nudged the crowd into May’s techno orbit with Tomi’s own brand of house.
