The Ministry for Tourism and the Malta Tourism Authority are pleased to announce that the 17th edition of the Malta International Fireworks Festival will be taking place on three nights between Saturday 21st and Monday 30th of April 2018.
This year’s Malta International Fireworks Festival will be different in more ways than one. The chosen theme for this edition, ‘Where Fire and Culture Meet’ reflects the way cultural aspects will be incorporated with features that have never been seen before in Malta and Gozo.
The opening will take place on Saturday 21st April in Xagħra, Gozo. Phoenix Fireworks Ltd (UK) and Rozzi Fireworks (USA) shall be performing on this opening night, against spectacular backdrops that intrinsically demand admiration.
Another spectacle will be held on Friday 27th April in Marsaxlokk, where Martarello S.r.l (Italy) and St. Mary Fireworks Factory (Ħal Għaxaq, Malta) will be setting the sky alight. The event in Marsaxlokk will be based on a traditional Maltese feast, where the colourful decorations and a local band dedicated to Madonna ta’ Pompei will take centre stage.
The Grand Finale on Monday, the 30th April will be like no other pyrotechnic show our islands have experienced. Fireworks which will be synchronized to live singing and a live musical orchestra, which will perform music written for the occasion from a floating stage in Malta’s majestic Grand Harbour, Valletta.
