Year after year, Notte Bianca sees thousands of people flock to Malta’s capital to experience a different kind of night out – although these celebrations were somewhat dampened in the past two years in light of the onslaught of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Having said that, just yesterday Festivals Malta Chairman Aaron Zahra revealed the programme of events of this year’s edition of Notte Bianca, which seems ready to return to its former glory after a two-year hiatus.

Mr Zahra started off by highlighting that, even though Notte Bianca was not held in its original format for the last two years, Festivals Malta still produced innovative cultural activities in its stead which followed the health guidelines at the time.

“Now that Notte Bianca will return in full glory, Festivals Malta will continue developing this festival to offer opportunities to various local artists, expose Malta as a cultural destination, and offer entertainment, as well as educational and artistic value to our audiences,” the Festivals Malta Chair added.

The entity’s CEO, Annabelle Stivala, went on to explain that Valletta will have something going on “in every corner” – “with the main stage in St. George’s Square, roaming performances, an alternative stage in Laparelli Gardens, and an installation in Tritoni Square, among many other initiatives.”

“The latter will surely be very nostalgic as we will see the traditional Maltese buses exhibited in a unique way,” she added.

Notte Bianca Artistic Director Antoine Farrugia explained how this year’s tagline, ‘Anything you want, you got it’, inspired the jingle for the festival, which is a cover of the refrain from Roy Orbison’s classic song ‘You Got It’.
