The most anticipated annual summer event, the 2013 Farsons Great Beer Festival kicked off yesterday and will be on till Sunday the 5th of August. Each and every year the festival brings together some of the best local stars along with upcoming artists that entertain the crowds present for the ten days festivities at Ta’ Qali. All those in attendance can enjoy the entertainment offered on both the main stage and the rock stage whilst sipping down their favourite beer.

The Beer Festival always manages to unite  the two main areas of the local music scene, as one finds a mix of music that varies from pop, rock and alternative – the mix includes the singers who are more associated to local contests to singers and bands who their main focus is hitting the radio airwaves. This amalgamation manages to attract different crowds to the beer festival and that is the reasons why the festival is a huge success year after year.

Malta: Loreen Ready for Concert Tomorrow

Winners of the Eurovision Song Contest tend to give a number of performances across Europe following their respective victories but then again, this is the first time in quite some time that this will be taking place noting that this years' winner Loreen had made her way into the Malta International Airport ahead of her concert tomorrow. She was welcomed by a number of fans as well as the organizer Antonella Vassallo who hosted the Malta Song for Europe back in 2001 alongside Claire Fabri and Louise Tedesco. There has been a lot of hype around the concert which is being backed by none other than a variety of companies including 89.7 Bay and their frontman Nathan D who will be hosting the evening. In an impromptu press conference given just after having arrived, Loreen stated that she is set to perform about six (6) songs including her previous effort for the Melodifestivalen entitled My Heart is Refusing Me and of course, her Eurovision winning entry Euphoria.

The setup at the Malta Fairs and Conventions Centre in Ta' Qali will be different noting that the inside of the event will not be used as seen within the annual Malta Eurovision Song Contest with the outskirts being used as seen within the Zucchero concert which was also organized by Antonella Vassallo on behalf of Stand Out Events. Taking to the stage as the main guest alongside Loreen tomorrow night will be none other than the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest representative Kurt Calleja who will surely be performing his two hit songs Over and Over and This Is The Night but there will be other performances during the night including those by Brooke who will surely be performing her latest song Fairytale and the internationally renowned dance group Tenishia who have just released their debut album with Armada Music, which is one of the leading companies in contemporary dance music. If you still would like to acquire tickets for the event, make sure to visit www.ticketline.com.mt and obtain your very own tickets.

In the most recent update at 89.7 Bay, the track has peaked at position number #4 and the release of the video along with a string of performances on local television in the next couple of days will surely continue to help Brooke climb even higher. For the past couple of months, the performer has been busy working on new material and it seems that the fruit of this work is really coming about together well. The video for the song which you can watch below was shot in Los Angeles within the same venue where Lady Gaga shot the video for her hit song Paparazzi. It is important to note that the focus of the music video is a couple, the female being none other than Brooke and the male being none other than Brant Daughtery, known for playing the role of Noel Kahn in the ABC hit series Pretty Little Liars. It is also important to note that Fairytale is written and produced by Howard Russell, an American who has worked with the likes of Jay Z.

It has been noted how many young artists have grown to become well known in Malta with contacts being made with foreign songwriters and producers who ultimately help in creating or rather shaping up a career. Two of the most notable names are surely those of Brooke and Christabelle, both of whom have a number of followers due to the fact that their genres are very different from each other and have succeeded in racking up awards for each of their specialities respectively. They are currently working on promoting their most recent singles Fairytale and Say which are being played on local airwaves. 

Looking back through the confines of time, one would remember a young, beautiful and talented Brooke taking part in the Junior Song for Europe remembering that she was robbed of the top position when she performed the heart out of the song Forever Love only finishing in sixth place. Nevertheless though, she showed prowess and just a couple of months later, the singer seemed destined for success and began performing with the Italian up and comer Daniele before then even duetting with the renowned winner of Sanremo Giovani Tony Maiello on the track Echo which was also performed on the likes of RAI DUE. Later on though Brooke decided to embark to London and from there onwards, she has not looked back releasing wonderful tracks such as Achilles Heel and Love Not War amongst others. Her latest single Fairytale is already a hit peaking at number #4 in this weeks edition of the Bay Radio Local Chart.

It was somewhat of a similar beginning for the beautiful Christabelle whose charming smile has managed to capture the memories of many individuals. Her initial participations in the Junior Song for Europe mostly her last one ended in dismay but set the tone for the future noting that the first major competition she competed in outside of this was actually a victory with the song Aċċetani Kif Jien in the 2006 edition of the Għanja tal-Poplu. Since then though, she has decided to take up an R'n'B genre which has proven extremely successful especially at the Bay Music Awards where she has managed to rack up the Best Female Artist accolade on a number of occasions. Some of the songs which she has released and have peaked at number #1 include none other than Everything About You, I Wanna Know and Everytime I Bleed amongst others. She seems to be destined for another top spot with her latest single Say which is currently at number #2 in the latest Bay Radio Local Chart.

During the past four to five years, there has been a catapulting music industry, reaching a new level of success noting that the production of tracks has become much more professional with the songwriting being even somewhat more original. Our country is known for producing some of the most talented performers yet the resources are somewhat still lacking. One of the individuals who has moved house and is definitely succeeding in the game is none other than the beautiful Brooke who most recently released the track Fairytale which also made it into the local iTunes charts. There is a lot of hype surrounding the track. 

The video is currently being put together but filming took place way out in Los Angeles, within a castle that has already received an overwhelming amount of views through the video of Paparazzi the track performed by Lady Gaga. There are a number of surprises within the music video actually with a guest appearance by Brant Daughtery, the same character who plays Noel Kahn in the ABC hit series Pretty Little Liars. The track is written and produced by American based Howard Russell, a man who previously worked with Jay Z.
