Albania’s Kala Festival Drops Amazing First Wave Line-up
If you fancy heading somewhere truly picturesque for your festival action, then you should really be considering Kala‘s inaugural event. Set to take place between June 20th – 27th (yes, that is a whole week of amazing music and scenery), the festival is located on the Albanian Riviera, at the point where the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic meet those of the Ionian.
Kala organisers have just dropped their first line-up announcement and, even without the presence of the headliner (who is yet to be confirmed), we can see that they are pulling a veritable warren of rabbits out of their collective hat in terms of acts they’ve got booked in.
Currently topping the bill is the incredible Moodymann. Potentially one of the most important house producers to come out of Detroit, Kenny Dixon Jr’s music is timeless. You only need to listen to one of his many tracks to see that his roots are ingrained in all that he produces – a class act if ever there was one.
Also on the bill, we have techno royalty in the form of Underground Resistance. These originators of the sound will be bringing Depth Charge (Mike Banks and Mark Flash performing live), DJ3000, and Mark Flash (DJ Set). Techno-heads will know exactly how exciting this is in terms of music news. It isn’t every day you get to see your heroes performing for you, so this is a big deal.
