Notte Bianca is Malta’s biggest annual arts and culture festival. For one special night every October, Notte Bianca lights up the Valletta cityscape with a spectacular celebration that is open to the public free of charge.
Festivalgoers can expect to experience the very best in music, dance, theatre, visual arts, literary events, as well as an exploration into the emerging world of new and digital arts. During Notte Bianca, Valletta’s streets and public spaces are used in innovative, creative ways thanks to a mix of roaming and site-specific projects.
State palaces and museums open their doors to delight patrons with visual art exhibitions and theatre performances. Streets and piazzas are transformed into venues for open-air theatrics and concerts, while many cafes and restaurants extend their hours. Every which way you turn, you are bound to stumble upon another festival treat.
All of Valletta, from City Gate to Fort St. Elmo, comes alive on Notte Bianca, guaranteeing a memorable night that truly holds something for everyone.
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.
