Albanian magic: 10 photos from Unum Festival’s debut outing

Albanian house and techno festival Unum arrived on the golden sands of coastal town Rana de Hedhun last weekend.

76 acts across three stages treated ravers to their summer anthems in the Albanian heat, including Ricardo Villalobos, DeWalta, Joseph Capriati and Luciano.

Also providing the soundtrack across the weekend were Ferro, Cesar Merveille, Skizzo, Mike Shannon, Margaret Dygas, Ion Ludwig and Traumer.

Alongside the music, UNUM offered partygoers refuge with a chill zone, relief in the food court and recuperation with a spot of yoga.

UNUM is based upon the concept of unity (the Latin definition of the word being ‘one as a whole’), and Rana de Hedhun’s combination of soft beaches, crisp blue waters, peachy sunsets, gargantuan mountains and sound made it a fitting home to aid that vision for the festival’s debut.
