Rocking the Night Away: Urban Jungle Malta Hosts In-Store Press Event for ‘Rock the South’ Music Festival

Hudson celebrated Rock The South with a special event at the Urban Jungle, Tigne Point, Malta. The event was the place to be on the 6th of April for the in-store press event for the highly anticipated ‘Rock the South 10th Year Edition’ Festival. The event was sponsored by Vans, bringing together an exciting line-up of performers for a night of music and celebration.

The event kicked off at 7 pm and ran until 9:30 pm, featuring an impressive line-up of artists. The crowd was treated to an energetic performance from the 3-piece band Beesqueeze, who are Maltese natives known for their infectious melodies and upbeat rhythms. Their performance set the tone for the rest of the evening, with their unique blend of indie dance high-power garage pop/rock.

Next artist was Yung Belial, the Italian rapper who brought a different flavor to the night. His electrifying performance and charismatic stage presence had the audience captivated and left them wanting more. The event closed with a DJ set from Black Plague, the home of Malta’s underground, a DJ trio who kept the party going by sampling genre-defying heavy, industrial-tinged, cloud/emo centric rage, hip hop and trap. The crowd danced into the night, with Black Plague’s set serving as the perfect way to cap off an unforgettable evening.

The in-store press event attracted a diverse crowd of fans, artists, and press, all excited to preview the upcoming ‘Rock the South’ Festival. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the festival, which has become a staple event in the Maltese music scene. The festival will take place from the 5th to the 7th of May 2023 and is set to feature an impressive line-up of local and international artists across multiple stages. This event was a great way to build excitement for the festival, with attendees getting a sneak peek at what’s to come. The event was also an excellent opportunity for Vans and Urban Jungle to showcase their support for the local music scene and connect with music fans.

On March 16 1966, Paul Van Doren, his brother, James and Gordon C. Lee opened the first Vans store as “The Van Doren Rubber Company”. The company made shoes and offered them for sale to the general public. The Vans shoe was designed for skateboarding. It featured a cushioned collar for enhanced comfort, and Tony Alva and Stacy Peralta, who helped skateboarding become a global sport, designed it. It was available in a variety of color combinations.
