Malta is quick becoming one of the party hotspots in the Mediterranean, with the island home to a wide range of clubs and festivals throughout the year. Located in-between Sicily and the North African Coast, the European island has long been a holiday destination for people from mainland Europe with a growing reputation for attracting dance music fans.
With an array of scenic towns and villages dotted around the island, Malta rivals heavyweight summer destinations such as Ibiza and Croatia when it comes to providing a breath taking back drop. Recent years have seen BBC Radio One DJ Annie Mac stage her very own Lost & Found Festival on the island, taking place across a number of venues in the Ta’ Qali region. As well as using an array of spaces in the newly built Uno Village, the festival holds parties within Malta’s many castles and forts situated on the island.
The multi venue Uno Village has been another factor in Malta’s ability to attract some of the biggest brands in electronic music to the island. Rising from the ashes of a former DJ Mag top 100 club, the new party faculty boasts three unique rooms kitted out with high end furnishings and Function One sound systems. Having already been on hand to host segments of Lost & Found, Uno Village will also be home to up and coming festival The Sound You Need as well as specific events organised by the International Music Summit.
World renowned electronic music purveyors Cream also command a large presence on the island, bringing a one-day incarnation of Creamfields to Malta in August.
