NEW YORK - Malta Tourism Authority (MTA) announced the dates for the 21st edition of the renowned Malta International Fireworks Festival. This spectacular event has gained a huge following and is keenly awaited by the Global Fireworks Industry. It is an event produced solely and exclusively by the Malta Tourism Authority (MTA) and will take place April 17 - 30, 2022. The theme for this year's festival, A Night With Legends, is inspired by late music legends. In fact, each competition participant will be asked to select the Musical Score for the PyroMusical Display from the likes of Aretha Franklin, Michael Jackson, Amy Winehouse, Freddie Mercury and many more.
“The Malta International fireworks Festival has always been a big draw for tourists from all over,” said Michelle Buttigieg, MTA Representative in North America. “The very fact that it takes place in seven different locations around the Maltese Islands, provides an opportunity for tourists to experience the spectacular displays in various dramatic Maltese settings.”
This year, there is a new production format that will be adopted, judges will be elected from the board of the International Symposium of Fireworks and the let-off of all the fireworks will be from the sea, a special setting which is also important in relation to the Symposium.
The event will be hosted in seven different locations over different days, three of which will host a competition between foreign and local competitors. The last day of the festival is the ‘Grand Finale’ where the Malta Tourism Authority takes the opportunity to announce the winner chosen by the Jury.
