After just two editions, Malta’s Glitch Festival can rightfully lay claim to being a top European festival summertime destination.
Across its three days, 14 – 16 August, underground music fans from around the world – and last year saw attendees from everywhere from UK to France, Australia to America – are invited to dance within the mythical House & Techno fortress of the Mediterranean island. Set against the backdrop of fortified city, Mdina, Glitch Festival takes place at the Gianpula fields, and features multiple areas including its Main stage, pool parties, boat parties, and even an ancient vault venue. It’s structure will see the 14 & 15 August hosting the majority of acts with a welcome 16 August cool down boat party to wrap things up set on the island’s renowned blue waters.

Musically, Glitch Festival goes toe to toe with any “major” market event, as it will welcome some of the scene’s biggest names – Nina Kraviz, Jeff Mills, Floorplan, Rødhåd, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Hunee, Amelie Lens, Charlotte De Witte, Peggy Gou and Dax J. Also on hand will be a rare live performance from Dopplereffekt, as well as a carefully curated list of selectors like Young Marco, Objekt, Call Super, OR:LA, Volvox, Alexander Robotnick, Jupiter Jax and more.
