LWE & Junction 2 Present
ION Festival
8th – 15th September 2021
Dhërmi, Albania

Join the ION Festival Community Group here.

ION is a different kind of music event, one where you’re invited to get outside the usual festival fences and have a real holiday experience. For everyone who chooses to come with us on this extended summer party, ION will be a week filled with new encounters and 3,000 like-minded friends, all soundtracked by electronic music’s best artists.

ION reconceptualises what an overseas festival experience can be, where friends can enjoy cultural, food and restoration events in the glorious summer sun. When the days spent exploring or relaxing are done, the night-time fun beckons guests into new worlds where their favourite electronic artists will play in settings precisely calibrated to immerse them in the moment.

In its location, its settings and its extended duration, ION creates a magic that goes beyond festival expectations. Yet it retains LWE and Junction 2’s reputation for innovative events loved and respected by everyone who attends.

All tickets to ION are sold with accommodation. This is to avoid overinflated rates during the festival week and to ensure sustainable prices for ION for this year and beyond.

We will also be operating the following payment plan options for tickets. Please note there will be no additional costs to take advantage of these:
· £50 deposit for festival ticket and accommodation package
· £150 deposit for festival ticket, accommodation and flight package

Booking early will allow you to access the best hotels and apartments in Dhërmi for a fraction of the price. There are limited accommodation options within the festival area, and we expect these to sell out fast. You will also have priority to book tickets for ION’s additional experiences, with these going on sale in the coming months.

ION benefits from having the majority of its accommodation in the village of Dhërmi and nearby Dhërmi town. This means attendees can get the most out of their experience without having to spend time travelling to venues or having problems getting home after a long night.

There will be a range of options for festival goers, with all rooms being in clean, modern hotels, many of which have stellar views of the gorgeous scenery, all at excellent prices. Best of all, no boiling hot tents or sleeping on the hard ground.

We aim to provide the best festival experience and being able to manage the accommodation for our guests enables us to deliver a smoother event. We charge hotels and apartments the same commission as Airbnb, so this makes your price better too.

All the hotels in the village itself are a 5 to 15 minute walk to the festival. This is likely to be the most popular option, so we encourage early ticket registration in order to secure the accommodation of your preference. The festival area will also be pedestrianised for the duration of ION, making for a village that’s safer and cleaner for everyone.

For those staying in the equally good hotels in Dhërmi town or Drymades, there will be a regular shuttle bus running to and from the festival.

Terms & Conditions



Dhërmi, Albania


In a world which has been stripped of most of its mystery, the beautiful Albanian village of Dhërmi is a rare thing; a hidden space in a truly unique location. It’s this sense of seclusion and separation that makes it the ideal location for our first overseas festival.
