Metal over Malta Festival is held at Chateau Buskett on the beautiful island of Malta. The venue is tucked away in the island's oldest wooded area, and provides a great atmosphere for people to enjoy a day of metal music in good company.

Chateau Buskett is in the locality called Buskett, limits of Rabat.

Van transport to the venue is also available and pick-up points are in Gozo, Valletta and Gzira. More news on this tba.
