Planning your trip

How to get tickets

In order to access the Explorations presale, you must sign-up to receive the ticket link. Once you’re signed up, there are two key dates: 

November 15 at 12pm GMT: Presale for those who have previously been to Explorations

November 17 at 12pm GMT: General presale for those who have signed up

If you would like to attend we strongly recommend planning with your group in advance and be ready to book tickets as soon as they go on sale.

Getting ready for pre-sale

All tickets include accommodation and a festival wristband for the week.

At time of booking, you’ll be able to:

  • Purchase your tickets and accommodations
  • Reserve your transfers to and from Dhërmi
  • Add shuttle tickets
  • Add tickets for Gjipe beach parties (lineups to be announced)

Tickets for wellness programmes and other activities will be available at a later date. 

Booking with a group: Groups are able to book together through one reservation. While most accommodation options are suitable for 2 - 3 people, there are limited options for groups of 4 - 5 people. You will need the full name, date of birth, email and phone number of each person in your group to book, plus a £75 deposit per person due at time of booking. 

Booking solo: There are a few options for solo travellers, however we recommend booking as soon as tickets go on sale. We’ve also created a Facebook Group to help you meet others who want to go to Explorations - this is a great place to find new friends and sort your group ahead of time.

Arrival and departure dates: You will need to know your desired arrival and departure dates to secure your hotel and transfer options. 

Your desired arrival and departure dates will impact your hotel and transfer options, so make sure to confirm your plans with your group ahead of time. If you book a transfer with us, your arrival and departure options will be: 

  • Arrival Dates: Thursday 8 June and Friday 9 June
  • Departure Dates: Monday 12 June, Tuesday 13 June, and Wednesday 14 June

Note: music programming is scheduled Thursday 8 June - Tuesday 13 June. 

Deposit info

You can secure your spot with just a £75 deposit. If you book during the presale: 

  • The initial 50% of your balance will be due on January 5, 2023
  • The remaining 50% of your balance will be due on February 28, 2023

If you book with a group, the deposit must be paid by the lead passenger. Once the booking has been created, each person will be able to pay their balance separately. 

Full dates and amounts will be communicated to you with reminders once you have made your booking.
