Unum has worked its tail off to win the hearts of underground music lovers. The third edition last year restarted the festival scene in Europe as it was the first festival to happen safely after the initial Covid pandemic. This festival will enamor all of your senses- the natural beauty of the setting, the heat of the sun, the soul-enriching local culture that makes the whole event a colorful travel experience as well as a forward-thinking musical celebration. People from all over Europe come to join this close-knit and friendly festival. Of course, last year’s vibes were intense and amazing because it was the first festival to take place in quite some time.
Says Unum Director, Grego O’Halloran,“The experience of how Unum 2021 took place, in the context of a global pandemic, meant that thousands of people shared in a little piece of unique magic that will stay part of the festival’s history forever. This year for Unum 2022, we will be actively building on this same spirit and our ethos since day one of “become one”. On that basis, we’ve added another day at the start and the festival will run longer on the Monday also, because people just didn’t want to stop dancing! We’ll also be spicing up the Beach Stage with some new sounds this year and adding some new, fresh faces on the Pines. “
In 2022, we get to dance our hearts out by almost two extra days! Get ready for nonstop dancing and fun during this unforgettable experience in the beautiful Rana e Hedhun. It is a quiet corner of Europe in the town of Shengjin, on the idyllic Albanian coastline. You’ll experience gorgeous mountainous backdrops, long gold-sand beaches, and dusty landscapes that are a million miles away from everyday reality.
