After a two-year hiatus, Notte Bianca will make a grand return on Saturday 1st October from 7 p.m. onwards with an exciting programme that contains various art forms and performances of the highest caliber by local and international artists.
Notte Bianca is one of Malta’s biggest annual arts and culture festivals. For one special night, every first Saturday of October, the Valletta cityscape lights up with a spectacular celebration of the arts that is open to the public free of charge. Valletta’s streets, piazzas, churches, state palaces and museums are transformed into venues for a myriad of live performances and concerts, while many cafés and restaurants extend their opening hours. The entire city of Valletta, from City Gate to Fort St Elmo, comes alive for Notte Bianca, guaranteeing a memorable night that truly holds something for everyone.
The performances will be organised into different routes, including a children’s route with activities that will start from 4:00 p.m.; a music route, which includes various genres like jazz, blues, pop, rock and much more; the classical route; a theatre route; a dance route; and an alternative route, featuring ethnic music with the participation of Fakawi, Manatapu, Tribali and Trakadum in Gnien Laparelli.
Notte Bianca Valletta is produced by Festivals Malta in collaboration with Heritage Malta, and the Ministry for National Heritage, the Arts and Local Government.
