EPIZODE, one of the most exciting festivals in the world, is set for an epic comeback on the divine beach of Shengjin in Albania, from the 15th till 19th of September 2022!  This will be the 2nd edition held in Albania and their 6th edition overall from around the globe.  

The festival will bring five days and four nights of the top-tier music selection, magnificent stage decisions, and the recurring electric, unique atmosphere. What would Epizode be without its 24-hour non-stop music too? Which will be surrounded by additional daytime activities, all wrapped in the ethereal sunrises and sunsets and colourful Mediterranean serenity. Shengjin in Northwest Albania is filled with blissful landscapes and a warm emerald sea. The festival site is surrounded by an area known for unparalleled local hospitality and mouthwatering local delicacies. 

We are more than excited to finally announce the first wave of the line-up, which really does set the tone and excitement for further announcements from Epizode.
First up is the French super-trio Apollonia with their spectacular back-to-back-to-back set followed by the hip-hop rooted house and techno DJ superstar Loco Dice, Christian Loffler will bring his smooth and fascinating sound, alongside the legendary eclectic techno producer  Move D. Fuse London party-starter Enzo Siragusa will shake us up with his groovy sound, Djebali will be serving his rolling grooves while Francesco Del Garda will bring a perfect blend of funk, techno, and groovy house.

Next up is the French superstar Traumer with his contagiously funky rhythms, followed by a Romanian powerhouse and [a:rpia:r] member, Dan Andrei and Pawsa with his inventive tech house with an old school vibe.  Furthermore, Epizode will welcome Belgrade’s own yet internationally acclaimed Marko Nastic, Berlin based Cinthie, Icelandic atmospheric producer Janus Rasmussen (Kiasmos), French star and Yoyaku resident Janaret, alongside Sweely, one of the most creative and eclectic French producers of the new generation. They will all be taking the crowd on a 24hr journey from the soulful house and stripped breaks to the atmospheric and electric techno.

They will all also be accompanied by some of the most exciting international and regional acts, such as Herodot, Ms. Mada, Oshana, Panthera Krause, Roustam, Manchester label and party You&Me, Christian AB, Quest, Franziska Berns, O.Bee, Tomas Station, Hameed, and Zya. The local scene will have its representatives, internationally acclaimed Alban Hi-Dini, Rrrron and Secret 47. 

The first Epizode Albania edition in 2021 welcomed crowds from more than 49 countries and more than 50 international and regional DJ legends such as Solomun, Marco Carola, Dubfire, Binh, Margaret Dygas, Praslea and Nastia to name a few.

Born in 2016 in Vietnam’s Phu Quoc island, Epizode has, in only four years, made an impressive mark internationally, becoming an unmissable NYE getaway for music and art lovers, global adventurers and professionals from the music industry.  Previous EPIZODE editions set the standard by curating some of the most respected artists on the global dance scene, as well as internationally recognised club brands.
