Valletta, Floriana join forces to organise NYE celebrations
The Valletta and Floriana councils have joined forces to organise this year's outdoor New Year’s Eve celebrations.
The events will be held throughout most of Valletta and Floriana.
St George's Square will host the main stage and will see the very best of Malta’s top local talent.
The night in the square will start with William Mangion performing piano bar classics, followed by Kurt Calleja’s New Year Eve Edition of Cabaret and More featuring Warren Bonello and Brooke.
Pierre Cordina will take over and play some of the best hits of 2012 before the 3D countdown show. Then it’s up to Gianni and Filletti to welcome the New Year with their performance.
A kids' area will also be set up in the new De Valette Square. In the new open air theatre, Zoo will team up with Centrestage to produce an end of year show.
An audio visual countdown will include stage pyrotechnics and fireworks.
For the first time, the countdown will include an Architectural Projection Mapping NYE 3D countdown show. The technique involves the use of high powered projectors to project audio visual animations on buildings in St George's Square.
The countdown will kick start the celebrations leading to V18 Valletta European Capital of Culture.
In Floriana, Mikaela, Yorika, Raquela, Luisana Bartolo, Paul Borg Bonaci and other top talents will take everyone for a musical journey from the 1960s to today. They will be accompanied by a live band and DJ Toby.
Valletta events are being organised by the Valletta council in collaboration with G7 Events, while those in Floriana by the Floriana council in collaboration with Justin Attard Promotions.
The comedy show 'Bla Kondixin' will also be featured.
