On the 27th September, Rockestra in aid of the Malta Community Chest Fund will be returning for a sixth consecutive year, this time under the patronage of Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca, 9th President of Malta. What is different about 2014 is that there was a public call for artists who wanted to be a part of the spectacle, a call which in turn led to 118 submissions, all of which were heard by a professional panel of judges and shortlisted to represent the best possible talent that Malta is proud to offer.

Rockestra, a spectacular event which encourages the general public to donate money to a charitable cause whilst listening to live music played by the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra under the direction of Maestro Sigmund Mifsud will offer a stunning line-up with artists such as; Franklin Calleja (MESC 13, 14), Raquela (MESC 09, 11, 13), Tiziana Calleja (MESC 10), Paul Borg Bonaci, Francesca Borg (MESC 12), Daniel Cauchi, Konrad Pule (MESC 00, 03, 07, 13), Gianluca (ESC 13), Matthew James Borg, Justin Galea, Ivan Filletti, Gianni (MESC 00, 12, 13), Simaria Galea, Lara Dimech, De Bee (MESC 14) and Brooke Borg.

Tickets for the Rockestra are available at €10 (standing) and €15 (seated) although the latter are almost completely sold out except a couple here and there. You may purchase yours through Ooii and thus ensure the experience of a lifetime, or rather a year. Rockestra is taking place at the Malta Fairs and Conventions Centre.
