Guide to the Malta International Music Festival


April 15th - May 1st, 2018

Founded in 2011 by the European Foundation for Support of Culture, the Malta International Music Festival is now one of the most important cultural events in Malta. Taking in concert events, masterclasses and regular competitions in all branches of instrumental music, the festival brings together young, upcoming talents and the world’s most famous musicians.

Once home to knights and pirates, Malta is now one of the most picturesque destinations in Europe, situated to the south of Sicily. Taking place in Valletta - the capital of the island republic - and Floriana, the Malta International Music festival marks the beginning of a season of summer festivals all across the Mediterranean.

The large concerts and other events of the festival are held in one of the oldest buildings in Europe, the 16th-century Sacra Infermeria in Valletta, in which the Mediterranean Conference Centre is situated. Chamber concerts, meanwhile, are held in Floriana’s Robert Samut Hall, a unique example of Maltese architecture.
