With so many great festivals and artists to choose from how can anyone decide which festivals to attend?? Well, we at Chimera hope to make your choices a little bit easier for you. Each week we will feature one or two festivals that we are personally excited about. First up on our list,

 

 

Earth Garden, Ta’ Qali, Malta

 

 

EARTH GARDEN FESTIVAL is an annual outdoor festival held on the beautiful island of Malta. What makes this festival unique is that it considers itself a “Non-Mainstream” Music Festival. So while you won’t be seeing Arcade Fire or Lorde, you will be seeing over 100 of the best underground acts from around the world. The Festival will feature 5 different music stages with a variety of themes. This includes the Roots Stage, Enchanted Forest, Electronic Sphere, Strawberry Hill and a very well organized live Jamming Area. Earth Garden prides itself on maintaining it’s green footprint and eclectic music styles which include Blues, Jazz, Funk, Ska, Dub, Reggae, Psychedelic & Alternative Rock, Gypsy Punk, Psychedelic Trance and everything in between. This festival seems to have everything you need in a great festival, Chill vibes and a colorful atmosphere, mix that together with great music on a Mediterranean island paradise!? So far only 4 artists have been announced with the next announcement coming March 1st.  This festival has been going on for almost 11 years now so these people know how to organize a good time. It’s a celebration of the Earth with nothing bug good energy. Did I also mention that unlike many of your other massive festivals, it’s actually affordable?!  So for tickets and more information on Earth Garden, be sure to check out:
