LWE Events have announced the first names for Siso Festival – a brand-new destination festival set to take place through 14–20 September 2023 in the small coastal village of Dhërmi, Albania.

With many of the DJs playing multiple sets, the 5-day event will feature over 25 globally-renowned dance music acts from top party brands such as FUSE (London), Patrick Topping’s Trick, Denis Sulta’s Sulta Selects, Pyramid (Ibiza), Adam Beyer’s Drumcode, and others.

Partying to the sounds of house, techno, disco, garage, soul, and whatever else is appropriate for the setting – festival-goers can expect picturesque beachside stages, intimate extended sets, villa parties, and much more.

The Albanian Riviera has become a must-visit destination in recent years, offering stunning scenery, crystal clear waters, awesome food, and some of the best beaches in the Mediterranean … so there are surely worst ways to wrap up your summer!

Tickets, travel & essential info

For those who sign up, tickets go on sale Thursday 16 February (prices TBC). You can also sort out accommodation via their website.

Siso Festival 2023 will take place through 14 – 20 September in Dhërmi, Albania. For cheap flights, we recommend Tripadvisor.

Also note that Siso immediately follows ION Festival in the exact same location, literally starting the following day. Both festivals are organised by LWE Events.

6 different stages

Blurbs are taken from their website.

Empire: An ode to Balearic, open-air clubbing, featuring a wooden dance floor, well stocked bars, a chill- out area with day beds, its own private beach and a stunning mountain backdrop, Empire will play host to some of the most in-demand brands in dance music. Whether night or day, the stage encapsulates everything SISO is about: making friends and memories with a sun-soaked soundtrack.

Empire Pool: Ever fancied taking a dip in the pool, soundtracked by your favourite DJ? Well, now you can, as we invite you to the immaculate Empire pool for SISO’s daytime pool parties.

Splendor: A serene beachside bar that transforms into a buzzing, open-air deck with one of the best soundsystems you’ll ever hear by night, Splendor is there to create those unforgettable moments. As the waves crash against the beach just metres away, you’ll never want to leave this incredible space.

The Cove: Crystalline waters, cocktails and sunbathing, The Cove is the ideal place to relax during the day or get your boogie on at night, feeling the sand beneath your feet as you take in this truly special setting.

Yacht Club: Another stunning location, The Yacht Club is a terrace bar flanked by gorgeous beaches, jutting out into the water for some incredible views along the way. It’s perfect for chilling out with friends during the day or shaking a leg at night.

Gjipe: Our hidden stage, just 15 minutes away via boat, Gjipe is surely one of the greatest party locations on earth. With spectacular scenery, including a forest, waterfalls and the incredible canyon, Gjipe is a one-of-a-kind spot that you will never forget, featuring some truly special sets from our performers.
