UNUM is not like other festivals. It isn’t a smash and grab, in and out rave. It’s a coming together of like minded people and six days of almost non-stop music in secluded locations. As the grooves ebb and flow, you plot your own journey whether that’s dancing on a beach at sunrise, getting lost amongst the trees on the Pine Stage or exploring the historic local town and all its rich cultures and customs.
Taking place June 1-6th, today more than 40 names are added to the bill including Hot Since 82, Marco Carola, Janeret, Cap, Cesar Merveille, Doudou MD, Dungeon Meat, Magda, Nick Curly, Pol, Reiss, The Ghost, Youandewan and more, with over 25 local talents, emerging artists and future stars also playing. These additions come on top of the first wave of names including Ricardo Villalobos, Dyed Soundorom, Rhadoo, Raresh, Praslea, Sonja Moonear, Margaret Dygas, tINI and plenty of others. Tickets always sell out for this most cultured of musical gatherings so make sure you are part of the story by getting yours at https://www.unumfestival.com/.
UNUM has become a cult favourite festival because it started small and has grown naturally and organically as word has got out. It’s a truly authentic musical experience with a focus on world class sound and boutique stages that offer dreamy places to dance. There are no sound limits, no time restrictions, just plenty of freedom to explore, enjoy and soak up new sights, sounds and scenes. The famously friendly and in the know crowd is made up of a mix of people from all over the world, with many locals enriching the diverse dance floor.
It all goes down in the hidden secret paradise of Rana e Hedhun, a quiet corner of Europe in the town of Shëngjin on the picture-perfect Albanian coastline. On the sweeping beach you can enjoy uninterrupted sun and sea with a stunning mountain range in the distance and magical pine forests behind you. As well as the music there is a broad mix of heart-racing water sports, mouthwatering local food and drink offerings and plenty of isolated bays and secluded woodland areas to explore.
This year Animal Crossing host Friday night on the iconic Pines Stage, Sunrise Romanians take over Saturday night and Slapfunk take care of Monday. These three events are sure to be highlights of the whole experience which also includes headline sets from mainstays such as Marco Carola, Hot Since 82, Ricardo Villalobos and plenty more cutting edge names from the worlds of techno, minimal, electro, house and garage.
Add in plenty of beach parties, organic production across the site and unreal musical memories that you will cherish for a lifetime and UNUM is another irresistible proposition for summer 2023.
