Sonic Transmissions could not have been wrapped up in a more ecstatic style. Supported by Rave Travel, Kosovo’s leading events agency, DokuFest had the pleasure to have Altin Boshnjaku as the last artist performing on the festival’s virtual stage.

As part of the underground music scene since 2014, Altin Boshnjaku is well-known to the rave enthusiasts in Kosovo and Albania, reaching even beyond in the region. During this time’s one-hour performance, Altin transmitted his “rolling basslines, elements of minimal house and garage, and distinct sonic sounds” right from the National Museum of Kosovo, where a special setup was built in order to properly bring to an end DokuFest’s euphoric collection of musical events for this edition. Besides the location, what added to the local touch of the performance was Boshnjaku’s energy on stage, his rhythmic, groovy effects that meant to close the Virtual DokuNights, but instead increased the desire for a physical edition next year.

Adding to the artist’s thrilling musical personality, the performance served as a reminder to everything DokuFest wishes to offer to its audience, from the never-ending efforts in putting together enjoyable acts, to the attention and care that are used to look after even the most minimalistic details. Furthermore, the festival’s friends that made possible August 22th’s evening prove once again nothing less than how DokuFest builds its foundations through the community that it orbits around.
