With the six-month countdown on till Drumcode Festival Malta, it announces 11 DJ additions to the line-up, two new stages and more hotel capacity, as they look forward to welcoming more fans and friends to the sun-drenched Mediterranean island from 16—19 September, 2021.
Kölsch makes his Drumcode event debut, having minted a label debut in late 2019 with a sublime remix of the Adam Beyer classic ‘What You Need’. Likewise, the festival welcomes Berghain resident Marcel Dettmann to play his inaugural Drumcode party, having long shared line-ups with Beyer. Joris Voorn is a superlative DJ and returns to the fold after a terrific set at the 2019 festival in Amsterdam. Championing a kinetic brand of techno and electro, Anastasia Kristensen has emerged as one of the scene’s most thrilling DJs in recent years and she’ll make her DC event debut this summer. Long-time label associates Dense & Pika bring their industrial-charged energy to the island. Emerging talents Sandra Mosh — a recent debutant on DCLTD — and the hotly tipped Clara Cuvé also join, bringing a heady brand of techno to Malta. Part of the new crop of artists contributing quality music to the label, Oscar L, Timmo and Jay Lumen make richly deserved additions. Rounding out the phase two line-up announcement is Drumcode treasure and all-round techno luminary Cari Lekebusch who’s been dishing out techno masterclasses for 25+ years.
These DJs make up the 50+ artists from the Drumcode family and beyond who will play the four-day event headlined by Adam Beyer, who’s invited the cream of the world’s techno crop to join him. This includes Richie Hawtin, Kevin Saunderson’s legendary E-Dancer project, Ben Klock, Maceo Plex, ANNA, Monika Kruse, Chris Liebing, Bart Skills, Layton Giordani, Wehbba Live Station and many more over eight stages.
Outside the regular festival programming, the festival will be taking over the island with boat and hotel parties scheduled throughout the four days, culminating in the most comprehensive and unique Drumcode event to date. Deposits start at 10€ and total price for the festival starts from 249€ including accommodation. It goes without saying; this event will sell out.
