Having been holding it down in the picturesque setting of the Dominican Republic, bringing you sun, sea, and the chance to catch some of the best DJs in the world, Groovefest will now be bringing their brand to the Mediterranean isle of Malta. Groovefest Malta will get under way from the 29th of April and run to the 1st of May bringing together a wealth of DJing talent over the course of the 4-day festival. The location of the festival of the festival in Malta is yet to be announced.
The first night of festivities will be in the reliable hands of Egg London's DJ Mag Sessions who are set to welcome French party starting trio Apollonia to the decks. The French connection will remain as they will be joined by Bass Culture head and Parisian hero D’Julz on the opening night of the festival. None other than the master of the grooving bassline, Kerri Chandler, will be on hand for a showcase of his Kaoz Theory label with Dutch duo Detroit Swindle. UK deep house will be well represented as Hot Since 82 brings his Knee Deep In Sound party to the Mediterranean isle which is set to feature German selectors Matthias Tanzmann and Guti. With institutions such as Cafe Del Mar and Defected Records on board and many more names yet to be annouced expect 4 days of top parties to go down.
