Malia Music Scene

Malia is full of different genres of music from the bars on the strip to the big club nights, there’s something for everyone! In the bars you get a mix of old and new pop music, ranging from the Top 40s to cheesy 90s and 00s tunes. In the special event nights at the main clubs, you have certain types of music for each one. For Apollo you got mostly R&B genres, like Hip Hop and Grime.

In Zig Zag you had the house and techno tunes every night, and Warehouse was busy this season for the D&B and bassment sounds! Candy Club on Wednesdays is where you find the live acts, this year included the likes of Yungen, Not3s, Ramz, and many more!
