The islands have a vibrant calendar of theatre and concerts, classical and modern. Many are held outdoors or in historical venues. There are annual cultural events such as the three-month summer Maltafest.
Another regular is the international Jazz Festival in July. Now over ten years old, it has seen both legends and newcomers perform in a spectacular venue by the floodlit Grand Harbour.
Malta is also fast becoming the place for clubbing. Top international DJ's appear for guest weekends throughout the year, and Paceville and St Julian's are the centre of this scene.

In June 2011 we will have the 5th Edition of Isle of MTV Malta Special. In addition to the above, there are a number of shows depicting the history of Malta and traditions, that is, The Malta Experience,& The Mdina Dungeons.
The Maltese Islands are a strong Catholic country, with a wide
diversity of festivities which makes up the religious year. Feast days
are the life of the Islands and some holy days are actually national
holidays, such as the feast of Santa Marija in mid August. However, the most important events to all villages are
their individual festas, honouring their parish patron saint.
