One of the most awaited summer festivals, considered as the opening event of the summer music season in Malta is returning with an unmissable line-up that is sure to attract the huge crowds the event is renowned for.

The weekend-long festival is bringing its audience a mix of well-established acts together with various new artists and genres which the festival has not seen before.

Organised by a team of volunteers, the Beland Music Festival started in 2011 and aims to serve as a platform for the development and promotion of local artists in the musical sector by combining established headlining artists with up-and-coming artists. This blend creates an attractive atmosphere that allows the audience to appreciate the wide range of talents available in Malta.

The festival will kick off at 8pm where on each day two local bands will be competing in the third edition of the Beland Music Contest supported by Arts Council Malta and PRS for Music. The artists are Auntie's Yellow Sofa, RiSE, Jessica Magro, Dav.Jr, Mark Anthony Bartolo and Raquel.

On Friday, May 3 the show commences with a live performance by Klinsmann and Kersten Graham, winner of the Beland Music Contest 2018, and headlined by the anticipated concert from Ira Losco.

On Saturday, May 4, the Beland team is putting together an innovative show together with star DJs Tenishia and Ruby accompanied by several well-established singers, live musicians, fireworks and dance shows.

All will come to an end on Sunday, May 5 with a concert from Mana Tapu.

The festival will be held at Market Square, ┼╗ejtun. Entrance is against a donation at the door. For more information e-mail or visit and
