The festival continues with its commitment to electronic music, led this year by Laurent Garnier, Dixon and Maya Jane Coles, with the confirmations today of the Canadian Mathew Jonson, the Galician Baiuca, the Ibizan Los Dos, and a great number of Mallorcan DJs: Satore, Rosana Nun, Guri feat Eider, The Southnormales, Disco Canela, J.A.M.C., Bocabeats and Goodman.

This year 36,000 visitors are expected throughout the weekend, which is an increase of 35% over last year. This growth is also reflected in the festival's budget, which will go from two million last year to over three million in 2019, and in the growth of the venue, with five thousand square metres more for the restaurant, chill out and market area and a 40% increase in the area for the second stage. "We want the public to enjoy the best of experiences, that's why we are working on improving infrastructures and services: we will have more metres of bars and more food stalls," assured the director of Mallorca Live, Álvaro Martínez, during the press conference.
The festival will count one more year with the sponsorship of Meliá Hotels International, in this edition through the brand INNSiDE By Meliá. "Through the collaboration with Mallorca Live Festival we seek to widen the new concept of INNSiDE by Meliá as a brand, using links to the festival as the kind of public we share, that travelling spirit inherent to festivals and hotels and the great commitment to sustainability, highlighting the joint commitment to the environment, "said Sofia Muntaner, Global Brand Marketing Specialist of INNSiDE by Meliá.
One more year the appointment will be held at the old Aquapark in Calvià, on 10th and 11th May 2019. The mayor of the town, Alfonso Rodríguez Badal, confirmed the municipality's commitment to host major quality events such as the Mallorca Live Festival, essential to remain being a leading tourist destination that wants to distinguish itself for its quality. "Calvià needed to recover great musical and cultural performances, and the MLF puts us on the map as the site of one of the best music festivals in Spain", said Rodríguez Badal, who ended his speech affirming: "We are happy to have the MLF again in Magaluf, in Calvià ".
The artistic director of the festival, Sebastián Vera, highlighted the commitment of the festival with the artistic talent of the islands, incorporating local bands to the line-up, sponsoring Mallorca Live Talent and supporting the MusiCalvià competition.
