Electronic rock band Bring Me The Horizon takes their title of “saviors of British rock” (by NME) to an all new level by announcing an immersive four-day music festival on the coast of the Mediterranean! Taking place May 26th through May 30th of 2022, the Bring Me The Horizon & Friends Malta Weekender is the perfect getaway for BMTH superfans.
Not only will BMTH be performing their own headlining set, full of throwback tracks that won’t be played on any other tour in the near future, but the entire lineup of the festival was handpicked by the band. BMTH will be joined with support from mainstream rock legends Bullet For My Valentine, all the way from Wales. Additional support comes from metalcore favorites Beartooth and Motionless In White, as well as pop rock sensation PVRIS and rising alternative rock bands Spiritbox, Nova Twins and Wargasm. There has only been one announcement of performers thus far and much more music is set to be announced as the festival nears.
The lineup is colored by all genders, sexual orientations, nationalities and sub-genres nested under the rock label.
For a band that is known for pushing boundaries and falling out of the norm, it is great to see that the members of BMTH have put their money where their mouths are with this inclusive list of bands. In addition to musical performances, the weekend is stacked with a BMTH curated itinerary. Every ticket includes entrance to the pool party takeover on Sunday and there are add-on options for boat parties soundtracked by guest DJ’s throughout the weekend. BMTH is teaming up with Pollen to bring the festival organization and activities to life. Pollen is a travel company that specializes in huge destination music parties. While the company is widely known for putting together EDM and house music festivals, they have begun expanding their offerings across all genres of music over the last few years, servicing hundreds of thousands of fans around the world to unforgettable music experiences.
Despite all of the planned activities and scheduled performances, the festival also leaves room for exploration throughout the day. Malta is a tiny isle — measuring just 316 km2 (122 sq. miles) — with much to be explored. Attendees can venture out to traverse the major cities, underwater caves, museums, temples and medieval architecture nearby the festival activities.
Ticket holders must be 18 years or older in order to attend the festival. Tickets are currently sold out for this event, but you can visit the website and sign up to receive any updates regarding additional tickets that might become available.
This festival announcement comes after BMTH’s nomination for ‘Best Rock Album’ at the 62nd GRAMMY Awards in 2020, followed by a highly acclaimed pandemic-themed EP called Post Human: Survival Horror, released in 2021. Fans anticipate even more new music to be released by the band before this festival, due to the band commenting that they’d likely begin working on the second installment of their Post Human series early 2022. Stay tuned for more updates regarding the event, as Bring Me The Horizon & Friends Malta Weekender is bound to be a festival talked about for years to come!
