14th Edition of the Malta Military Tattoo

14th Edition of the Malta Military Tattoo

The Malta Military Tattoo will be held on the 14th and 15th of October 2017 at the Malta Fairs and Conventions Centre (MFCC) in Ta' Qali.

During a press conference held in St George’s Square in Valletta, the organizers explained that The Malta Military Tattoo is a yearly event that features military bands and other elements which come together to provide a spectacular show for audiences of all ages. The event is a gathering of international and local military bands, making this an occasion to showcase the talents of these musicians and performers. Participants this year include the Armed Forces of Malta and the Drill Team, The Malta Police Band, The Malta Police Drill Team, The Massed Pipes and Drums from Malta, the Chorley the Croft and Culcheth Pipe Band from England, The Tagil Band from Russia and The Moscow Youth Dance Company.

The music played will combine popular tunes together with more classical themes and they will all be performed in the context of a Military March parade, to provide a spectacular experience for all ages.

Malta Tourism Authority’s Deputy CEO and Chief Officer Strategic Development, Mr Leslie Vella, noted that this is the fourteenth edition of the Malta Military Tattoo and the MTA has been supporting this event because it is considered to be a great opportunity to showcase the Maltese Island from a cultural and musical heritage perspective. It aims to create synergy between local and foreign musical talent, and in so doing, it sustains a niche in cultural tourism that is important within the industry. This event is a one of a kind in Malta as it covers a different style of music than what most people are used to, thereby generating a different type of tourist than what is usually received by the Maltese Islands.

Mr Vella remarked that the Malta Military Tattoo, held every year in October, has become a regular appointment on Malta’s annual calendar of events. Activities such as the Tattoo, and various other cultural and entertaining events organised in the off-peak months, are contributing to increase the attractiveness of the Maltese Islands outside the summer, thereby reducing the destination’s seasonality.
