The final preparations for the return of the SummerDaze Festival musical concert are going on at a good pace, after a two-year absence due to the restrictions brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic. 

During a visit made by Tourism Minister Clayton Bartolo on Thurday to Ta’ Qali, he said that indiciations are that the attendance for this festival is expected to reach around 70,000 people. 

This music festival, spread over seven days, will reach its peak on Monday 15 August, as international artists, including Anne-Marie, Bastille, Elderbook, G-Eazy and Jason Derulo will be participating. 

Meanwhile, on 17 August, another concert will be organised featuring Deejay Time’s Albertino, Fargetta, Molella and Prezioso, J AX, Baby K, Corona, ICE Mc and Meduza. 

For this year, the entrace price for these concerts will be €3. With each ticket sold, attendees will be given a cup that can be used more than once with the aim of reducing the use of plastic. 

“SummerDaze is another activity through which our country continues to be amongst the most attractive countries when it comes to festive tourism. 

During this summer, and even for the coming months we want to continue offering a cultural product of competitive quality, and above all, of a versatile nature,” Minister Bartolo said. 

He stressed the importance of quality, saying that “tourists and Maltese deserve to have high level and professional activities in our country – a competitive product so that we can continue to be a versatile destination for everyone who wants to visit the Maltese islands.” 

Bartolo highlighted that recent data published by Eurostat shows how Malta is among the best EU countries that attracts tourists throughout the year. 

“This is a certificate showing that the recovery plan for the tourism sector is moving towards the right direction,” he said. 

The Chairman of the Malta Tourism Authority Gavin Gulia was present during the visit to Ta’ Qali.
