Anjunadeep and Mainstage Festivals have announced dates for the second edition of their new destination festival, Explorations. The 2019 gathering drew in over 2000 fans from over 50 countries as they converged on the quiet village of Dhërmi, Albania, nestled on the shores of the Ionian Sea. Sixty artists performed across five, picturesque stages from the afternoon to dawn.
Taking place in high summer between June 18 and June 23, 2020, next year’s Explorations builds on the success of 2019, promising an even more diverse lineup for sonic explorers and a wider range of community and wellness activities.
Dhërmi, Albania is one of the Mediterranean’s best-kept secrets, with travel gurus Lonely Planet describing it as one of the best destinations for budget travelers. Attendees, thoughtfully nicknamed “Explorers,” will experience an unforgettable five nights of community and discovery for much less than the cost of other destination festivals in the region.
With all tickets for the festival only available as part of an accommodation package, Explorations encourages revelers to fully immerse themselves within the local community. Explorers will eat some of the best seafood the Mediterranean has to offer, swim with dolphins in crystal-clear water, and dance to cutting edge melodic sounds courtesy of Anjunadeep’s thoughtfully curated lineup.
Pre-sale begins on Tuesday, November 26, for returning Explorers, before Earlybird Tickets goes on sale Thursday, November 28, for those who have registered. Packages are limited and registration is essential, so head to the event landing page now.
Line-up is expected to land on November 21. Watch the aftermovie from 2019 below.
