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 2010 edition is in it’s preliminary stages actually and the organisers are getting ready to gear up for another year.
We are in a position to reveal that this years’ edition of the Konkors Kazunetta Indipendenza received a total of 125 Entries, 32 of which are in the Teen Category whilst a total of 93 entries were submitted in the Established Category. The submission procedure was open from 08:00 CET till 19:00 CET yet was just a tad longer until everyone who had entered till the final minute got his song registered. It is important to note that the next phase of the competition will most probably be taking place in the beginning of June when an appointed panel of judges will be bringing down the 93 entries within the Established Category to 50 whilst the performers chosen for the second phase will perform live in front of a different panel of judges until the final decisions are made known.
When comparing last years’ submissions with this years’ one could easily note that there was a decrease within the established talent category as from 110 entries they have went down to 93 entries whilst the overall tally is just down by three thanks to the increase within the other category. Technically we are still within the same water as we had last year. We will be bringing you updated with the latest news as soon as it becomes available only here on ESCflashmalta.
