The 37th edition of The Farsons Beer Festival

Malta’s hottest summer celebration is back with its 37th edition. Running over 10 days, from Friday 28th July to Sunday 6th August, the Farsons Beer Festival brings together the best beer, food, music and entertainment at Ta’ Qali National Park.

As one of Malta’s most awaited summer annual events, drawing thousands of festival goers every night, the festival will once again feature over 70 local artists and performances, no less than 50 local and international award-winning beers and a revamped food court offering a diverse choice of foods.

The vast choice of local and international award-winning beers is the main highlight of the festival with the wide range on offer including local brands Cisk and Farsons Classic Brews, international brands Carlsberg, Budweiser, Corona and Guinness, as well as speciality and craft international beers such as St Austell, Leffe, and Baladin. International ciders Bulmer’s and Strongbow complete the selection.

Mr Adolf Vella, Business Support Manager at Simonds Farsons Cisk plc said, “With over 70 performances spread across three stages, this year's festival is that little bit more special. The bands in this year's line-up are all local and we have also gone to great lengths to cover as many angles of the local music scene as possible. From pop, rock and indie to ska, punk, metal and reggae, with even a dash of jazz and lots of acoustic acts, this year's line-up has something for everyone. Ten days of great music, live and direct from the top acts of the local scene, all coming together at this year's Farsons Beer Festival.”

“Since the very first edition of the festival held back in 1981, we have consistently strived to improve the event to offer our thousands of visitors an authentic and enjoyable festival experience. The daily record attendance, year on year, is testament to the success and timeless appeal of the Farsons Beer Festival. Entry to the festival is free of charge. This is our way of giving back something to our loyal clients and consumers who support our brands through their custom throughout the year,” commented Ms Susan Weenink Camilleri, Head of Marketing and Communications at Simonds Farsons Cisk plc.

The food court, newly revamped this year, includes a choice of popular restaurants such as The Pulled Meat Company, Gate of India, New York Best, Bad Ass Burgers, Mad Hatter from TexMex and many more.

Also new this year are special arrangements made with Malta Public Transport for direct and late night routes to ensure widespread accessibility to and from the festival.

Doors open at 8pm every night. Entrance to the festival is free and no tickets are required for entry. For more information, news and updates please visit: www.farsonsbeerfestival.com or follow us on www.facebook.com/thefarsonsbeerfestival and www.instagram.com/farsonsbeerfestival/.
