The year 2018 sets the stage for a more vibrant and welcoming capital city – and this special after party promises to keep spirits high! With plenty of surprises in store on the day, we look forward to hosting everyone in the heart of the capital city, for an amazing celebration that sees out our tenure as a European Capital of Culture. Expect a spectacular line-up of live shows, music.. and a few unexpected touches, too.

The success of any European Capital of Culture is rooted in the passion, imagination, support, dedication, enthusiasm and generosity of its communities. Indeed – as with the traditional festa – Valletta 2018’s Closing Spectacle is all about celebrating community, life and culture while forging new friendships. Only together can we truly celebrate Valletta 2018’s year-long programme of incredible events, initiatives and activities with the same energy and love that’s gone into it. So save the date and join guests, visitors, artists, curators, residents, Tal-Kultura volunteers and the Valletta 2018 team in a lively closing event that pays tribute to the creative diversity that exists on our Islands, in Europe and beyond.
