The Malta Jazz Festival shines as a pinnacle of artistic integrity in the global jazz scene. While many festivals dilute their line-ups, Malta’s event achieves a brilliant harmony of elite and popular jazz, featuring world-class musicians true to the essence of jazz.


Considered by the international jazz community as a ‘true’ jazz festival and a beacon of artistic integrity, the Malta Jazz Festival presents a panorama of jazz music in all its facets. In a climate where jazz festivals increasingly water down their line-ups with non-jazz elements, the Malta Jazz Festival stands out as an event that achieves a perfect balance between the savant and more popular elements of jazz, offering a programme of world-class musicians that doesn’t compromise on the ‘jazz’ element.
