With pleasure we INVITE you (only MUSIC bands,orchestras,majorette teams, , (children ,youth and adults groups) to participate on  XI MALTA INTERNATIONAL SPRING MUSIC FESTIVAL from 11 - 15 May  2023

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 musical traditions are very old, strong and widespread. The aim of this International Festival is to make sure that the different musical traditions from all over the World meet up in Malta, for a reciprocal cultural exchange and enrichment.

Today, the island of Malta is 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.

International Festival, parades and performances will be held in various locations around the island of Malta.

This International Festival is open for concert bands, marching bands, fanfares, majorette groups, flag-waving groups and bagpipe bands.The artistic programme consists of outdoor parades and standing performances.The Festival is non-competitive. The programme will include outdoor parades and standstill performances. During these parades/performances, groups must perform with their own instruments.
