The Malta International Arts Festival (MIAF) blends innovation with accessibility – curating a programme of artistic excellence with strong contemporary aesthetics, accessible to a wide audience. MIAF goes beyond the conventional performance by hosting most of the programme within unique heritage sites.

Every festival can programme a concert recital, but this year MIAF is proposing concerts inside the subterranean 16th century cistern built by the Knights and invites audiences on a beautiful two-masted vessel to experience a theatre production set within the unique panoramic views of Grand Harbour.

MIAF isn’t just a festival. It is an “experience” where Malta becomes the stage and the backdrop.
