Defected Records Reveals Plans for New Malta Music Festival –

After hosting a sunny house music extravaganza in Croatia last year, Defected is taking their renowned music festival experience to Malta in 2022.

Defected Malta takes place October 7-9 in St. Paul’s Bay. The festival promises a weekend full of day and night parties on the Mediterranean, with five different clubs as well as unique and off-grid experiences. Defected has teamed up with Glitterbox, Classic Music Company, Sondela, and 4 To The Floor to help curate various stages with world-class house music talent.

Over two decades, Defected Records has established itself as one of the most respected dance music labels in the world. Founded by industry vet Simon Dunmore in 1999, the imprint has hosted legendary artists like Roger Sanchez, Bob Sinclair and Dennis Ferrer as well as a number of the brightest stars on the scene today, like John Summit and Vintage Culture. Defected held countless residencies in Ibiza as well as their flagship Croatia defected festival, which should take place again in August.

Organizers have yet to announce a lineup, but their website claims there will be more than 40 DJs on stage. You can take tickets and find travel accommodations here.
