The Unum Festival took place in Albania last weekend, and was the first unrestricted festival in Europe since the start of the pandemic!
Albania‘s Unum Festival took place last week as the first unrestricted festival in Europe!
The whole festival was supported by the Albanian Government. Indeed, the Ministry of Tourism and Environment and Ministry of Health were encouraging it. The country of Albania dropped all restrictions because of the low overall contagion rate in the country.
With no hiccups, the Unum was just pure joy coming from all the clubbers. The happy smiling faces at the event were a thing to behold. People climbed on each other’s shoulders, high-fived, and made new friendships quickly and freely.
Over the whole event, close to 14,000 people turned up from all over England, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Spain. Moreover, there were 3,300 people from Kosovo, 2,600 from Albania, and 2,050 from other Balkan places.
At the event, 100% of staff – both local and overseas – were fully vaccinated. Gloves and masks were mandatory for the cleaning team and toilets and mass-access areas were disinfected regularly. As a result, so far everyone who had to do a PCR test on their way back home has tested negative.
“In the wake of one of the worse years for the music industry, UNUM Festival came as ship of hope in the sea of don’t and do’s for Festivals and events of this size. It was a huge success and we’re exhausted but glad that we managed to give music back to the people. And even better, it sure was hella good music!” says the Director of UNUM Festival, Kushtrim Sahiti.
