Not only is Malta overflowing with cultural monuments to days gone by, it’s also on the cutting edge of European pop culture. The Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Valletta successfully combines old and new as it uses historic local buildings to host world-famous models as they strut their stuff. The event brings together Malta’s fashion talent as well as international designers, showcasing a range of street fashions and couture.
With fashion comes rock ‘n’ roll. Malta comes through with small local music festivals as well as the Isle of MTV, a free music event hosting some of the biggest names for 50,000 people to enjoy at the Floriana Granaries just outside of Valletta.
