Uno Village in Malta has been taken over by the 356 Entertainment Group, an experienced and music loving team that is to return it to its former glory in 2016 and beyond. From Solomun to Bob Sinclar, Eats Everything to Hudson Mohawk to Bondax, many big names are all lined-up as well as Creamfields, IMS Malta and The Sound You Need Festival.
The fast rising island itself has beautiful beaches, and miles of them, the sea surrounding the island is crystal clear and idyllically blue and the local food and drink is great, as well as being well priced. All these things are starting to bring more and more young people to the island, and with the great musical offerings it means the audience is cooler and cooler than ever. Now a truly credible destination, Uno Village is only going to ensure that remains the case in summer 2016.
But that’s not all there is to get excited about, because the famous International Music Summit is also coming to Malta to set up a special college for a crash course in electronic music this summer from July 1st to 3rd. It will aim to bring the world’s brightest young musical minds together for a 360 degree learning experience that will bring through the next generation of stars. There will be panels, interactive sessions, and top tier teachers from Point Blank and SAE all teaching about publishing, DJing, production, press, events, labels, booking, marketing and more besides. Solomun, Pete Tong and Nic Fanciulli will all play special night parties that accompany the IMS College with the grand opening event being held at Uno Village.
Formerly one of the Top 100 Clubs according to DJ Mag, this brilliant space has been revamped and refurbished after years in the wilderness and now boasts some stunning regular parties and big one off festival events. As such, it is sure to become one of the most talked about clubs in the world once more this summer season. The fantastic and multi-space club is kitted out with a specially custom designed Funktion One sound system throughout and boosts three different stages that cater to different moods and grooves. Each one is outdoors and has a different identity and entrance, and also has VIP booths, well equipped bars and mesmeric lights and lasers.
The decor throughout is plush and luxurious, with a MainStage and VIP terrace overlooking the whole club as well as having open air terraces with great views of the sea and crisp blue skies extending above. The club will be open Wednesday, Friday and Saturday and Sunday and will cater to cool kids and underground crowds, those who like a touch of opulence and special treatment and also those who like to dance and get sweaty all night long. Seeing the sun rise and fall at Uno Village is sure to become one of clubland’s most essential experiences.
As for the parties, Wednesday nights will see weekly international guests like Klingande on July 13th and Bob Sinclar on the 20th. Later in the year more will be announced. Also in July, Bob Sinclar, Federico Scavo, Ziggy, Eats Everything and all play between July 20th and 24th and then on August 15th the world renowned dance brand Creamfields brings a mammoth selection of stars to come and play this year’s festival. A regular on the island for a while now, this is always a landmark event for Malta.
With all these parties, festivals and learning opportunities in store for Malta this summer, the island really will become one of the most essential party paradises in all of Europe.
