the fertile ground for a second edition and a phenomenal phase one
announced. Now the edition is growing into it’s Maltese mission with an
expanding lineup, phase two promising to deck out an already killer crew
by drafting in Andrea Oliva, Art Department, Jamie Jones, Laura Jones, Doorly and more, for a Mediterranean drift into bliss.
an unmoving mantra straight from the foundations of dance, Groovefest
is a communal celebration in secluded surroundings for the movers, that
even brings along the fathers of the scene. Joining the forever present
force of goodwill that is Kerri Chandler atop phase one, are a selection
of ever prescient DJs who carry forward this uncompromising curation.
ANTS’ own original Andrea Oliva maintains the apex of
the bill with a highly crafted style from his standout career, one
reflected by a highly refined crew from phase two in support.
selectivity central to Groovefest is as ever in keeping with the
grandiose settings, a cultivated cast including the solo though never
sharper Art Department, the force majeure of Hot Creation’s Jamie Jones,
in a list of talents enough to throw shade on pale comparisons to this
sunshine showcase. House’s true holiday is finessed by no fewer than Riva Starr, Laura Jones, Doorly, No Artificial Colours on board as ambassadors for what is high-class and current, from the undercurrents of the scene to it’s shimmering surface.
