This annual event illuminates the cityscape of Valletta with a spectacular celebration of arts and culture. The festival has premiered various successful projects in the field of new and digital media. And the year 2018 delivers an ECoC edition – a special run of the festival focusing on new media and participatory installations that strengthens its position as a platform for collaboration, experimentation and community involvement.
Across a carefully designed programme of events, local and international artists set off the night’s festivities with live music, dance, film and theatre performances. As part of its fringe programme – Notte Bianca Atmosfera – Valletta also opens its museums, historical buildings and art galleries to the public free of charge. With cafes, restaurants and food stalls open till late, visitors can enjoy a relaxing meal and a range of cuisine on the go.
Valletta 2018 will host the Valletta 2018 Dream Village at the Lower Barrakka Gardens during the night. It will include:
Orfeo & Majnun: Animal Building Workshop
A special Film Selection
Il-Festa ż-Żgħira (the small Festa)
