Defected has unveiled the complete line-ups for its 2024 summer events program, featuring its flagship festivals in Croatia and Malta, along with its new residency at Ushuaïa Ibiza.

The UK-based house label will touch down in Croatia for its eighth edition from August 1st to 4th, with fresh additions to the lineup including Honey Dijon, Jamz Supernova, Luke Una, Moodymann, Sammy Virji, T.Williams, Todd Edwards, and more.

These artists join an already impressive roster announced earlier this spring, which boasted names like Jayda G, Darius Syrossian, Dimitri From Paris, Horse Meat Disco, Monki, Purple Disco Machine, and The Shapeshifters, among others. The full Defected Croatia bill can be found here.

Last month, Defected also revealed the complete lineup for its weekend festival in Malta, set to take place from October 4th to 7th. New additions to the lineup include Arielle Free, Natasha Diggs, Melvo Baptiste, Dee Diggs, and Low Steppa, alongside Green Velvet, Honey Dijon, Dan Shake, and Eliza Rose, who will all make their debut performances at the event.

These acts join previously announced heavyweights such as TSHA, Cinthie, Eats Everything, HoneyLuv, Danny Krivit, Grace Sands, and more, who will be gracing the stages across the festival’s five island venues. The full Defected Malta lineup can be viewed here.

Elsewhere, as part of the label’s 25th anniversary celebrations, Defected has disclosed that it will be taking over Tuesdays at Ushuaïa Ibiza for the 2024 season. This new residency is scheduled to run from Tuesday, May 7th, to October 1st, with announced artists including Kerri Chandler, The Blessed Madonna, Disclosure, TSHA, Floorplan, DJ EZ, Idris Elba, Cinthie, Atmos Blaq, and many more. The full summer residency calendar is available here.

“We knew when we started planning the summer of our 25th year, we had to make it special,” shared George Pritchard, Defected’s Director of Events. “This year, the programming across all our flagship events, plus the move to Ushuaïa for our Ibiza season, demonstrates Defected leveling up and branching out.”

More information and tickets are available via Defected’s website.

In addition to the summer events programming, Defected is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a packed schedule of releases, including the newly launched Together series, alongside podcasts, radio shows, limited edition merch, and more.

Defected’s largest livestream to date – featuring 25 DJs playing back-to-back across four hours – is also available to watch on YouTube now.

Last year, Defected Records announced a new fundraising partnership with UK housing and homelessness charity, Shelter.
