The Malta Arts Festival, in the first three weeks of July each year, is a showcase of top quality events and sees local and overseas artists and performers side by side.
The summer slot enables most events to be held open air. Falling as it does during the peak tourist season, the festival attracts a significant overseas audience as well.
The summer Arts Festival is a bonanza of performance, music and dance, and offers something from almost all artistic forms. The event has also over the years opened up little used and special venues, such as the Old Opera House ruins in Valletta and Argotti Gardens, and been an impetus for the Islands to set about providing a greater diversity of art and performance spaces.
The 2012 Festival takes a different slant by not only enabling existing works to be performed and exhibited, but also by commissioning new works for the programme.
