malta world music festival

Under the artistic direction of renzo spiteri

The first edition of the festival left a positive impact on music lovers. A great line-up to kick off MWMF’s maiden edition in 2017, combined with the magical setting of the historic Fort St Elmo in Valletta ensured this festival showcased quality music and became an important addition to the country’s national cultural calendar.

The second edition of MWMF promises to be an even bigger event with a powerful line-up that will be announced in due course. The central idea of the festival will continue to be one that celebrates the beauty of cultural diversity, the exchange and dialogue of people’s roots and the vitality that is borne out of such experiences and expressed through the powerful medium of music.

2018 is a significant year for the arts in Malta with Valletta hosting the title of European Capital of Culture and the team behind MWMF are making sure that the second edition will surpass expectations.
