FESTIVAL PREVIEW: DARK MALTA FESTIVAL 16.04. -18.04.2021

For the third time, the Dark Malta Festival will be held on the island of Malta in 2021. Planned for mid-April, this beautiful island will be the venue for the festival, which will be held at Monte Kristo Estates in Ħaż-Żebbuġ – one of the oldest cities in Malta. We were there in 2019 and can confirm that the location and the hosts are absolutely fantastic.

For the first time the festival will take place over three days. As in 2019, 2021 will also see very well-known and successful bands on site. Unfortunately both Mono Inc. and She Past Away from the planned 2020 lineup had to cancel – both bands already had other plans in April 2021. So there will be some changes in the line-up for 2021, but with Project Pitchfork and Christian Death on board, there will still be two new, strong headliners.

The food and drink at the festival is highly recommended by former visitors, with some guests even talking about the best pizza they have ever had! The freshly brewed local beer was tested extensively and stands up well against comparison to German beers! With flights to Malta and rooms/apartments available for very reasonable prices, it is time to buy your tickets and enjoy a festival in a beautiful holiday destination. Just plan a few days before or after the festival to discover this stunning island – you will not regret it!
