Dark Malta Festival is Malta's only Gothic/Industrial/Metal Festival. The idea was born after DJ Hades and Aleera De Lune, organizers of the Festival, came out with the idea of organizing Malta's first Gothic Festival. With the First Edition being held in 2018 as a one day event with Diary of Dreams and Gothminister headlining the Festival. In 2019 the Festival came back with a 2 day event with And One and Lord of the Lost headlining together with bands like Suicide Commando, Clan of Xymox, Aesthetic Perfection, Alien Vampires and more rocking Malta's Darkest Festival. The Festival became very popular also with visitors that combine the Festival with a Mediterranean Holiday in a country which is famous for it's History and Climate.
In 2022 the Festival will be Back for a 3 Day Event on the 22nd, 23rd and 24th April. The Festival will be held at the Gianpula Village Main Room. With a vast lineup that includes Covenant, Moonspell, Combichrist with an exclusive Old School Electronic Show, Agonoize, Nachtmahr, Leaether Strip, Ash Code, Nosferatu, Sulpher, Alien Vampires + more, this 3 days will for sure be a big comeback. To complete this festival there will also be an alternative market selling Festival & Official Bands Merchandise plus an Art Exhibition with 3 Top Maltese Artists.
