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.
