Kala Festival
26 November at 15:28 ·

"We are shocked and saddened to hear of the news that has reached us in recent hours following the disastrous earthquakes in Albania.

Our first line-up announcement was scheduled for today but needless to say, this is much more important than our event. Instead we would like to take this opportunity to raise awareness about the situation in Albania.

An area near Tirana in the north-west of the country was hit by a 6.4 earthquake in the early hours of Tuesday morning, followed by a number of aftershocks, including one of 5.3 magnitude. Emergency services are working tirelessly on the several cities affected by the earthquake. There have been several casualties and hundreds of injuries reported on but our friends in Tirana are telling us that the situation is more severe.

A local foundation has set up this campaign to provide food, water, and shelter to Albanians suffering as a result of the catastrophic earthquake. Please help us raise funds towards disaster relief. We will be combining all our charitable efforts for this year's festival towards disaster relief in the area. Donate what you can and help Albania recover from this devastating earthquake.

We stand in solidarity with Albania at this difficult time and wish to convey a message of heartfelt sympathy to the families of the victims and all who’ve been affected, from everyone at Kala Festival"

Official statement from Kala festival:
"Dear Kala family, it is with a heavy heart that we have to announce that Kala won’t be able to take place in 2020.
​⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
​We have been monitoring the developments of the global situation closely, and after careful consideration, we have come to the conclusion that we won’t be able to run a safe and enjoyable event for our guests, staff, and Dhërmi residents this year.
​⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
​Kala is meant to be a celebration and an opportunity to dance and relax in paradise for a few days and switch off from the world to be able to return to our lives with renewed energy. While we believe this is more needed than ever and have done all we could to make it happen, the reality is that Coronavirus is still a serious health threat and that we haven’t made enough progress in our collective battle against it.
​⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
​We need to support frontline healthcare workers and organisations around the world fighting the outbreak, and avoid contributing to the spread of the virus so we can keep making progress in the right direction.
​⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
​Albania is in a relatively good situation but there is still a lot of uncertainty about how things are going to develop between now and September, and we believe it is not responsible to go ahead in this situation.
​⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
​It's absolutely heart-breaking to realise that we are going to miss our little slice of paradise this summer but we are confident it will be worth the wait, and that next year we will be able to enjoy the truly magical week in the Albanian Riviera we were looking forward to.
​⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
​Kala will take place 9th to 16th of June 2021. As promised, ticket holders have two options:
​⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
​Option 1: Move your booking to 2021 - any amounts paid, except the deposit, will be automatically refunded
​⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
​Option 2: Cancel your booking and request a refund
​⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
By moving your booking to 2021 you will not only guarantee your spot, but also support Kala and the businesses that depend on us. If you are in the position to do so, your support will be greatly appreciated.
​⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
​Please read the full statement on our site that includes information about how to change or refund your flights. See you next year ❤️"
