KALA also announced a slew of live sets from the likes of Nu Genea, Ela Minus, System Olympia, and Session Victim. More acts will be announced over the coming months.

The festival’s Marketing Manager, Juan Lopez, explains: “In a fast-changing festival landscape, Kala offers a new way of experiencing a summer festival, pairing a beach holiday at an exciting offbeat destination.”

Lopez describes the seven-day event as an “intimate and friendly festival atmosphere”, with “a curation that sets it apart from its peers with a healthy amount of live music, extended 5h sets by the headline DJs, and an eclectic yet coherent selection of talent across decades and genres.”
