The Malta Jazz Festival, organized by Festivals Malta, is a highly regarded event within the international jazz community. It is held in mid-July and showcases a diverse range of jazz music. Unlike other jazz festivals that tend to dilute their line-ups with non-jazz elements, the Malta Jazz Festival offers a perfect blend of both highbrow and popular jazz music. This festival has been running since 1991 and has played host to some of the most prominent jazz musicians in history, including Joe Henderson, McCoy Tyner, Michael Brecker, Elvin Jones, Lee Konitz, and Paul Bley. The event also focuses on promoting the local jazz scene by facilitating collaborations, exchanges, and free masterclasses. Leading up to the festival, the streets of Valletta and surrounding areas come alive with jazz music through the ‘Jazz on the Fringe’ peripheral activities. The Malta Jazz Festival stands out as a true jazz festival that upholds artistic integrity while also appealing to a broader audience.
