Come celebrate the end of 2017 in style with us; we will be ringing in 2018 with a national New Year’s Eve celebration in the main stage set up at St George’s Square, bringing a magical and festive atmosphere to Valletta. This year will be a special celebration for Malta, as we will be welcoming our European Capital of Culture year. The NYE celebrations will be organised by the Valletta 2018 Foundation, in collaboration with G7 events, the Valletta Local Council, the Ministry for Tourism and the Ministry for Justice, Culture and Local Government. The night will kick off at 8pm and the celebrations will keep going until 2am.

Visitors can expect the very best of Malta’s top local artists and bands, including Brass House Unit featuring Gianluca Bezzina, Ozzy Lino and Gloriana as well as Kim & the band and DJ Mykill & trumpet closing off the night. The event, hosted by Corazon Mizzi and Owen Bonnici, will also be featuring special international guests Ember Trio, a British classical crossover string trio, who combine a unique blend of classical and contemporary production elements. The NYE event will also host a number of aerial performers and street artists, including Walkabout creatures and a Heliosphere balloon performer.
