The Valletta International Baroque Festival is in its sixth year and, as ever, has attracted fans from all over Europe in its first week. This year the music has moved beyond the capital spread over 26 events in 14 locations.

“We’ve had full houses practically every day. Every year the groups get larger. They come from all over Europe. Some people coming from Japan, some people coming from America, and of course the Maltese concert goers come in droves,” the festival’s artistic director and founder Kenneth Zammit Tabona said.

But this year is special as the Maltese capital, along with the Dutch city of Leeuwarden becomes a European capital of culture for 2018 this weekend – and up to 100,000 people are expected to attend the official launch.
