29 April to 1 May 2016
2016 sees the Groovefest family make its way to a new and exquisite location of sun and house music. Known as the Mediterranean’s best kept secret, Malta is rapidly becoming the new European hotspot to party. From its stunning scenery and old-school charm, to its warm climate, friendly locals, and very affordable beers, what’s not to like? Party in style to the sounds of Defected, Knee Deep in Sound, DJ Mag Sessions, Kaoz Theory, Abode and many more.
By day. Café del Mar is a chic Mediterranean beach-side super club with pools, bars, cocktails and an amazing sound system. Join the simple things in life… amazing views of the blue Mediterranean sea, stunning sunsets and house and techno music all day long.
By night. Gianpula is one of the nightlife gems of the Med – an outdoor clubbing mecca set amongst palms and with views across the island. Set in a seriously lush environment, the party will continue after sunset until the early hours.
By boat. In true bank holiday style, we are bringing our beats to the Mediterranean sea. Cruise along the impressive coastline of St Pauls Bay and soak up the sun and those dirty sexy beats. All aboard!
