Malta Blues Festival 2018 in Malta, Music Malta, 30.06.2018 - 30.06.2018


Following a number of coincidences and events, it was felt that 2018 would be the opportune time to finally realise the Malta Blues Festival. A number of key people were consulted and a committee was created to lift this project off the ground.

The first objective was to secure a good venue and the bands/musicians to perform. A chance YouTube post led to meeting up with Paul Audia a young and super talented Blues guitarist.

The second person/band on the bill is Steven Van Der Nat – one of the guitarists of local band The Creepers who had repatriated to Holland and formed Little Steve & the Big Beat – a professional blues band who are performing in Europe and who offer a great performance. 

The final person is someone who had to be Maltese and a search was made to contact Antoni Grimaud– a solo performer who from a very young age left an impact on the local music scene for his great songwriting is especially known for his ‘ Songs for a New Generation’. We traced Grimaud to the UK and again with a chance meeting over the Christmas period of 2017, and some persuasion Grimaud agreed to perform, bringing him back to a major event in Malta after an absence of 10 years.

As they say with this line up ‘ the stage is set’ and Sir Temi Zammit Hall at the University of Malta secured as a venue.

The aspiration is that the Malta Blues Festival will be an event that will become a calendar event in Malta’s musical calendar.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who constantly supports the music scene in Malta.
