Visit our travel partners Choice Holidays, who offer a range of hotels to suit all budgets. Choice Holidays have rooms across the island.
If you’re located elsewhere across the island and would like information about how to get to the festival site then we’d recommend using taxis to get there as public transport doesn’t run regularly to the area. Use Cafe Del Mar as your point of reference, as all festival shuttles depart from here.
Camping is not available on site. However we have a range of accommodation including fantastic deals on apartments and hotels. Book through out official travel partner Choice Holidays.
We will have an English speaking team available and we’ll provide an emergency contact number should you need to speak to anyone to help with any issues you may have in Malta.
Times for individual hotels/apartments vary, and can be found out by contacting Choice Holidays or your accommodation directly.
Most of the hotel rooms come with safety deposit boxes in the rooms although some do require a nominal fee for their use. More information is available on safety deposit boxes at individual hotels when booking.

The festival shuttle is the easiest and cheapest way to get around the festival. Caé del Mar is located a short drive from Cafe Del Mar. Therefore you will need transport to get to the main festival site. Taxis will be available, but these are sometimes costly and are not as frequent. The shuttle service will save you time, money and hassle!
Keep your eyes peeled as we’ll be revealing the line-ups for our day parties nearer the time of the festival.
All pool parties are included in the festival ticket.
All pool parties take place at Café Del Mar – opening times, set times and full line-ups will be announced soon.
The average temperature on the island is 20 degrees in May, so should be perfect weather! We still advise you to bring a jacket for the night time.
There are a number of other towns across the island, however the festival shuttle service will only depart from Bugibba/St Paul’s – we would therefore recommend being as close to this part of the island as possible.
The festival is located about 11km from St Paul’s Bay, where we recommend staying for Lost & Found.
Malta is one hour ahead of the UK (GMT) – midday in Malta is 11am in the UK.
There are cash machines across the island of Malta where you can withdraw Euros as well as Bureaux de Change in some hotels.
The official Maltese currency is the Euro, which can be bought easily at the bank, the post office or at the airport.
Since 2014 the cost of data roaming and calls while in the EU has been reduced quite considerably, and this is also due to be reduced further late in 2016. EE, O2 and Vodafone all offer bolt-ons which will allow you reduced rates or unlimited usage while abroad or if you’re part of Three then you can use your UK allowances at no extra cost. Be sure to double-check your provider’s tariffs, especially when it comes to data – if your contract does not include free international data be sure to turn off Data Roaming on your phone before you land in Malta.
We’re working with hotel providers to ensure that WiFi is available in communal areas, but we cannot guarantee WiFi access in all accommodation.
