One of the most anticipated events on the Maltese musical calender surely has to be the Konkors Kazunetta Indipendenza which is an open air event held in the Floriana Granaries during the Independence festivities. Several local stars participate in the event promoting Maltese culture and lyrics. It is truly a spectacle for all.

The event first took place back in 1983 in a span of four years until 1987 before returning just 10 years later in 1997 going on to take place each and every year since then. Several local stars like to submit their entries into such a prestigious musical event due to the fact that the songs are written in Maltese. In recent years there were a number of winners who went on to be successful both locally and abroad. Below you could find the list of the past winners and the videos of their performances or entries where possible.
