F’Ġunju jirritorna l-Malta International Arts Festival bi programm ta’ 10 ijiem ta’ avvenimenti multidixxiplinari li jinkludu żfin, mużika, teatru u wirjiet ta’ arti viżiva. Element uniku ta’ dan il-festival huwa d-diversi postijiet storiċi li huma nklużi apposta fil-programm bħala sfond uniku għal uħud mill-aqwa artisti lokali u internazzjonali. L-avvenimenti ewlenin jinkludu ‘Harbour Odyssey’, ‘Underground Valletta’ bil-klarinettist Simon Reitmaer u l-mużiċist tal-Glass Harmonica, Thomas Bloch, kunċert mill-Malta Philharmonic Orchestra b’mużika minn Beethoven u Shostakovich, u rappreżentazzjoni teatrali b’karattri mill-folklor u l-leġġendi Malti, fost oħrajn.

Lulju huwa kkaratterizzat bir-ritorn ta’ żewġ festivals popolari: il-Malta Jazz Festival bejn it-8 u t-13 u Dance Festival Malta, li jsir bejn il-25 u t-28 tax-xahar.


Bħal kull sena, il-Malta Jazz Festival se jinkludi programm eklettiku ta’ avvenimenti b’line-up diversa ta’ mużiċisti, fosthom ‘Monica Salmaso’, ‘Thom Ollendorff Trio’, ‘Something Else – A Soul Jazz Revue’, ‘Trio Grande’ u ‘Chief Anjuah’, fost oħrajn.

Warajh isegwi Dance Festival Malta, li għal darb’oħra se jilqa’ artisti lokali u internazzjonali b’wirjiet ta’ natura artistika, u b’temi politiċi. Il-punti ewlenin tal-festival jinkludu wkoll diversi workshops/masterclasses, il-‘Youth Dance Platform’, li hija li tistieden liż-żeffiena żgħażagħ biex jippreżentaw koreografiji ma’ dilettanti taż-żfin u studenti oħra f’ambjent mhux kompetittiv, fost avvenimenti oħra.

Bħala Festivals Malta, aħna impenjati li nibqgħu nipproduċu festivals li jistinkaw għall-eċċellenza artistika filwaqt li noffru avvenimenti uniċi għat-turisti u nies tal-lokal bl-istess mod. Ninsab ħerqan li ser nagħtu bidu għall-kalendarju tas-sajf tagħna b’Ritmu Roots Festival, li se juri u jiċċelebra x-xena tal-mużika folkloristika lokali u tradizzjonali tagħna.”


Il-Kap Eżekuttiv ta’ Festivals Malta Frans Agius enfasizza l-importanza tal-kalendarju tal-festivals tas-sajf tal-Aġenzija peress li jinvolvi diversi artisti minn ġeneri artistiċi differenti. “Permezz tal-festivals tas-sajf, Festivals Malta tista’ tesplora aspetti differenti ta’ ġeneri artistiċi permezz ta’ erba’ festivals uniċi u distinti. L-għan tagħna hu li noffru forom diversi ta’ attivitajiet kulturali, u kif ukoll ta’ divertiment, lil gruppi ta’ interess differenti. Permezz tar-rispons pożittiv li qed nirċievu sena wara sena, Festivals Malta dejjem qed tersaq eqreb lejn dan il-għan ma’ kull sena li tgħaddi. Ninsab ħerqan biex l-udjenzi tagħna jesperjenzaw il-festivals tas-sajf ta’ din is-sena u nħeġġeġ lil kulħadd biex jattendi.”

Festivals Malta Launches the Summer Festivals Programme for 2024


Festivals Malta has launched its events for the summer months, featuring the return of four festivals as part of the agency’s diverse portfolio. These include the 2nd edition of Ritmu Roots Festival in May, the Malta International Arts Festival in June, as well as the Malta Jazz Festival and the 3rd edition of Dance Festival Malta in July. 


Festivals Malta will kick-off its summer calendar with Ritmu Roots Festival between the 17th and 25th May. This festival will reach out to the community through various workshops at The Splendid, as well as showcase contemporary performances of traditional music with the aim of inspiring and connecting people through the arts at Argotti. Ritmu will also highlight Malta’s folk singing tradition għana as a cultural practice, with main events including Għana Għand tal-Iżgej, Il-Qagħda tal-Mument, Duo Ruut u Ethnographic Film Screenings. 


In June the Malta International Arts Festival returns with a 10 day programme of multidisciplinary events which include dance, music, theater and visual arts performances. The festival also boasts several historic venues which act as a unique backdrop for some of the best local and international artists. Highlights include the Harbour Odyssey, Underground Valletta featuring clarinetist Simon Reitmaer and Glass Harmonica virtuoso Thomas Bloch, a concert by the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra with music from Beethoven and Shostakovich, and a theatrical performance featuring characters from maltese folklore and legend, among others. The festival is set to take place between the 14th and 23rd June. 


July will highlight the return of two popular festivals: the Malta Jazz Festival between the 8th and 13th and Dance Festival Malta, taking place between 25th and 28th of the month.

Our aim is to offer diverse forms of cultural activities through entertainment to different interest groups, and through the positive feedback we are receiving year after year, Festivals Malta is always coming closer to this goal with each passing year. I am excited for our audiences to experience this year’s summer festivals and I encourage everyone to attend.”
