About Festivals Malta
Festivals Malta is the national government body dedicated to the nurturing and growth of festivals and cultural events in Malta and Gozo.
The agency was launched in 2017 and entrusted with a varied portfolio of festivals to foster creativity, professionalism, participation and cultural education in the sector. It is responsible for an annual calendar of more than 160 separate activities across 9 engaging and accessible festivals and 5 national events that serve as a platform for local artists to showcase their talents and reflect the variety of cultural life on the Maltese archipelago, preserving local traditions, cultivating an environment of creativity and artistic expression and promoting public awareness of the arts. By acting as the focal point of collaboration and cross-promotion in the creative sector, Festivals Malta works to raise the profile of Maltese culture in the community and to promote Malta internationally as a festival destination.
