The 19th Edition of the Victoria International Arts Festival will take place between 08th June and 11th July. The Festival is the longest-running artistic activity on the Maltese islands, spanning five weeks of uninterrupted, high-powered musical activity, with no fewer than 33 concerts every evening. The Festival occurs at a period which heralds the summer months, and brings to Gozo over 600 musicians and their accompanists to spend time on the island.
Concerts will be performed in different venues all over Victoria, to include St George's Basilica, Aula Mgr Giuseppe Farrugia, Il-Ħaġar Museum, St Augustine Church, the Bishop's Curia, St Francis Church, and others. Apart from daily concerts, master classes in eight disciplines are held, during which up-and-coming Maltese students are given an opportunity to gain experience and tuition from experts both from Malta and abroad. This year, well-known artist Mark Sagona will also be presenting an exhibition of his works at Il-Ħaġar Museum.
A feature unique only to the Victoria International Arts Festival is that all concerts are presented to the public free of charge.
Victoria International Arts Festival is sponsored through a Cultural Partnership Agreement with the Government of Malta.
