Minister for National Heritage, the Arts and Local Government Owen Bonnici announced the launch of ‘Ghaxaq Music Events’ after two years of a lack of such projects.
The Minister thanked Hal Ghaxaq’s Ghaqda Muzikali San Guzepp, in collaboration with the Malta Arts Council and Festivals Malta, for making such a project a reality.
All the proceedings will be going towards DAR Bjorn, which helps people suffering with neurodegenerative diseases such as ALS. The festival will be seeing the likes of local stars Ivan Grech and Ira Losco performing to a public ready to welcome events back to the island after two years of hiatus.
Speaking to MaltaDaily, Minister Owen Bonnici said that the government strongly supports such projects as they give space for local talent to show what is capable of. They also give room for more critical mass to take place and thus move the industry forward.
