The 40th edition of L-Għanja tal-Poplu – Festival Kanzunetta Maltija will be held from the 7th till the 9th July.
This production is the result of a collective effort meant to highlight the importance of song in the Maltese language.
Considering that the festival saw its beginnings in Valletta, it is only natural that the 40th edition will be celebrated in the heart of the capital city at Pjazza Teatru Rjal. The committee would like to thank the venue management for their assistance in organising the festival, and special thanks also goes to the Valletta 2018 Foundation for their continued support.
L-Għanja tal-Poplu – Festival Kanzunetta Maltija would not be at the level that it is today without the creative contribution of Maltese songwriters and composers. The festival has managed to get this far thanks to the constant belief of the Għanja tal-Poplu committee and various stakeholders.
Songwriters, composers and music creatives are invited to participate in this festival in the Maltese language. This edition will include the PBS orchestra which will accompany the participating singers.
Details and guidelines for this year’s edition can be found on the Għanja Fest website.
