Summer 2012 is here
Get prepared for a summer fully packed with exciting events
Today, the 21st of June, marks the start of the summer season in Malta. With temperatures already well over the 30 degrees Celcius, many prefer to head to the beach to cool down in the beautiful Mediterranean waters. Sunbathing, BBQs and chilling are favourite activities of many locals and tourists, but 2012 brings more than beaches along.
June has been dominated with football events, but the rest of Summer has plenty of events to offer; there’s no way you can be bored in Malta. Starting with the Isle of MTV concert that will be held on the 26th of June as part of the Malta Music Week, that will be followed by the Malta Arts Festival from the 1st to 18th of July all over the island. Music lovers will be spoilt for choice with the annual Jazz Festival, concerts by international artists including that of Joseph Calleja, Ronan Keating, Laura Pausini, Renzo Arbore and Antonello Venditti.
Last not but least, the Maltese summers are known for the religious festas that dominate the cities’ landscape with their colourful brass-band marches and fireworks! There are a couple of festas every weekend in each city and village around Malta.
