Exclusive: Defected Malta Festival Lineup 2023
The newest Defected Records roster simply helps to strengthen the widely held belief that the label’s selection is second to none. The famous house music imprint and event organizer, which was selected EDM.com’s “Best of 2022: Industry Leaders” list last year, has released the roster for the second edition of its Maltese festival spinoff, Defected Malta.
After its spectacular premiere in October 2022, the festival will return to the glistening beaches of St. Paul’s Bay from October 6-8, 2023. SG Lewis, Hannah Wants, Keinemusik’s Adam Port, Jamz Supernova, Monki, Todd Edwards, Mason Collective, and many more have been added to the schedule.
Last year’s festival established Defected Malta as one of the world’s greatest destination electronic music festivals. Now, the label plans to take over the island’s “most in-demand venues” in 2023, including Fort Saint Elmo, a historic military fort and UNESCO World Heritage Site. This year’s festival will also return to the opulent Café del Mar beach club.
“I am delighted to be returning to Malta for the second edition of our festival,” said Defected CEO Wez Saunders. “Last year exceeded all expectations, and we very much look forward to returning with new stages and a diverse lineup of incredible talent.”
