Preparing for a long hot summer of house music, Defected announces a brand new festival for 2022, as it prepares to head to Malta for a weekend of partying on the Mediterranean for the very first time this October. Joining Defected’s ever-expanding repertoire of events and festivals, which this year include its longest-ever 23-week Ibiza season, the award-winning Defected Croatia in Tisno and stages at events across the UK, Europe and beyond, the London-based label continues to expand into new territories on its mission for global domination.
Defected Malta will consist of a long weekend of day and night parties, kicking off on Friday 7th October with a full schedule of club shows, boat parties and events at unique off-the-grid locations. Every day music will run from 12pm straight through to 4am, with Defected’s renowned musical programming showcasing the very best of the label group. With stages curated by Defected, Glitterbox, Classic Music Company, Sondela and 4 To The Floor, party goers can expect household headline acts alongside the rising stars of the scene and underground names on the line-up, to be announced soon.
Soaked in the sun for 300 days of the year, the idyllic location of Defected’s latest festival offering is a tailor-made setting for the label’s unique brand of house party. Continuing to make clubbing abroad accessible for all generations of dance fans, those looking to chase the sun for one final summertime event can look no further than Defected Malta, with stretches of white sandy beaches and the crystalline Mediterranean waters making a stunning backdrop to the festival. Venues will include lux beach club Café del Mar, the colossal, multi-room venue UNO and striking, unexpected pop-up parties that make the most of the location’s stunning surroundings.
Since launching its award-winning Defected Croatia festival in 2016, Defected has continued to push the boundaries of festival curation and production. With the 2021 edition of the event at The Garden Tisno marking a triumphant return to the live events space, this year is set to be the busiest yet for the Defected team. Embarking on tours of four continents throughout the year, expanding to major new territories such as Brazil, and returning to Ibiza for the first time since 2019 for its longest season on record, Defected Malta is another exciting addition to the label’s ever diversifying portfolio of events.
Defected Malta will run from 7th – 9th October 2022. Tickets go on sale 11am Thursday 27th January via defected.com/malta.
