Overview

Malta, with its strategic position at the center of the Mediterranean Sea, has always been a crossroad for exchanges of cultural diversity, also due to so
many Nations who have ruled over this country along its history. This is why the island's folklore tradition is very old, strong and widespread. The aim of this International Festival is to make sure that the different folk traditions from all over the World meet up in Malta, for a reciprocal cultural exchange and enrichment.

Malta is also definitely one of the most important countries in Europe’s tourism sector. Rich in history and charm, with a great sense of hospitality towards
visitors and above all with a warm temperate climate. During the free time, participating groups will have the chance to relax and explore the various unique
cities and villages of this magical island full of history. Hence we would like to invite you to discover this reality, perhaps at the most beautiful time of the year.

General Rules

The first two editions of this festival were a huge success with the participation of several groups from several European countries, such as Italy, Austria, Spain, Estonia, India, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Serbia, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Russia and of course from Malta and Gozo.

During the 4 days of this International Festival, parades and performances will be held in various locations around the island of Malta. The artistic program consists of outdoor parades and standing performances.
During the parades the groups will perform with their own instruments. During  the standstill performances, which will be held in the main squares, the Organisation will provide the audio system, compatible with CD and pen drive and 5 microphones to amplify the various instruments / voice (if these are required)
