The festival is held in July in the picturesque backdrop of Ta’ Liesse in Valletta’s Grand Harbour. As in past years, the Festival will showcase the contemporary jazz scene in all its forms, from cutting-edge jazz to flamenco fusion, from vocal to latin jazz.
Now in its 24th edition, the Malta Jazz Festival has helped raise the profile of jazz locally from a fringe festival to one of the most-awaited musical events in Malta’s artistic and cultural calendar. Running from the 17th to the 19th July in the open-air setting of Ta’ Liesse – where the Grand Harbour bastions meet the sea – contemporary music comes together with a sense of history, setting the backdrop for high-calibre performances which delight jazz aficionados and lay persons alike.
Malta Jazz Festival set for July 17 – 19, 2014.
