Pudini tal-Milied 2019: Not one, but two Pudini happening this year!
If you’re still in need of some Xmas cheer, you’re in luck! The legendary alternative party Pudina is happening tomorrow. You’ll also be glad to discover that this year there’s not one, but two Pudini happening on consecutive nights.
We caught up with organiser Danjeli ahead of this hotly anticipated event, to learn more about what’s happening on the 27th and the 28th of December.
How long has the event been going on?
Pudina first started as a party between Christmas and New Year in 2007. At the time, I was performing a lot at Liquid Club, and Ray (the owner) asked me if I wanted to throw a party during the quietest weekend of the year; i.e. between Christmas and New Year.
It was a bit of a gamble, as only the most hedonistic of party animals would come out between the two major festivities, while TV just talked about recession at the time
I used to have ridiculous night outs with my friends, extending into mornings at the beach drinking prosecco, and we used to refer to them Pudini. It, therefore, made sense to call this extended fun; Pudina.
Any special performances lined up for this event?
This is the first time that we’ll actually have bands playing, and also the first time we’re extending the party to 2 days.
Bark Bark Disco will be opening on Friday, and BILA will be launching their new EP, ‘Deheb Incens u Bila‘.
Also, Radju Haj – a great podcast I’ve also been invited on – will be performing for the first time on Friday!
What can you reveal about Pudina’s collaboration with Late Interactive?
Pudina is Late Interactive’s playground; they have free rein, and I really believe in what they do. This year we’re going to make sure that we bank on most of the previous installations, and create new props. I can assure you that it’s gonna be amazing!
