In its first year, the close-knit UNUM was a brand new festival that made an immediate mark because it was a friendly coming together of real music lovers in an amazing region of the world. It played out on the beautiful, organic and natural Albanian Riviera with a world class line-up of house, minimal and techno DJs.  The festival really shined a spotlight on Rana e Hedhun, the last untapped corner of Europe in the town of Shengjin, on the idyllic Albanian coastline. Music played, and will play again, across day and night, with blissful sunrise and sunset parties, water sports, plenty of local culture, food and drink offerings and a music loving crowd from all corners of the world. Beyond the music there is lots to explore in this natural paradise, from isolated bays and gold sand beaches to the Albanian Alps.

This year, from June 2nd with support from the Albanian Ministry of Tourism and Environment, the UNUM team will turn the city of Shengjin into a thriving destination of music, art and youth creativity for Culture Week.
