Following a successful debut last year, the team at Defected have now released the line-up for Defected Malta 2023. The 2nd edition kicks off on Friday 6th October for another long weekend of parties across 3 days & 2 nights!

Over 50 DJs are scheduled to play, including Bushwacka, Carl Craig, Dennis Ferrer, Eats Everything, Floorplan, Hannah Wants, Horse Meat Disco, Inner City, and loads more.

Hosted against the stunning backdrop of Mediterranean waters, attendees can expect outdoor club shows, pool parties, boat parties, and even a castle party – at venues like St. Paul’s Bay’s luxe beach club, Café del Mar, and the multi-room venue ‘UNO’.

More announcements are expected to follow regarding boat parties and possibly additional events around the island.
