Albania’s ION Festival has announced the full list of acts set to perform on the shores of Dhërmi this year — and it’s stacked up to be a huge one.

After an initial first wave of acts announced earlier in December including ION debuts from DJ Seinfeld, HAAi, and Francesco Del Garda, the full line-up has now landed in preparation for the September event.

Heading to the Albanian coast this year, Dan Shake, Madam X, Adam Shelton, and KT make their return, as well as debuts from Anz, DJ BORING, Tim Reaper, Sofia Kourtesis, Elkka, Saoirse, and Raresh.

In 2022, ION Festival went ahead for the first time after two COVID-related postponements. The second edition will add to the stellar inaugural event, set to go ahead from September 6 – 13 across a huge week-long bill.

“We are incredibly excited to be returning to the shores of Dhërmi for the second edition of ION Festival in September,” says ION’s Promotions and Marketing Director, Jeff Gray.

“Building on the success of our inaugural year, we plan to build on our core values – Dance, Explore, Connect – through our continued dedication to a programme of high calibre underground DJs, many of whom play multiple extended sets, unique wellness and cultural experiences and integration with the budding local atmosphere of Dhërmi.”

On top of the announcement of ION’s completed bill, new partners including Keep Hush and Servis were also added, as well as a run of local Albanian artists who will perform at this year’s event.
