In just a couple of months, Malta will be playing host to this year's edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest having been chosen by the European Broadcasting Union following their victory with "The Start" co-written by Gillian Attard, Elton Zarb, Matthew Mercieca and Gaia Cauchi, the latter also responsible for the superb vocals.

With the Steering Committee travelling to Malta twice, first time round to analyse the potential venues and second time round to make some announcements, as well as see what vision the Public Broadcasting Services has for the event, the European Broadcasting Union has officially confirmed the Malta Shipbuilding in Marsa as the host venue. Just ten minutes away from Valletta, and with an estimated 4500 capacity, the Malta Shipbuilding "is a challenge" but will provide a "wonderful setting for Junior Eurovision" according to Anja Zegwaars of AVROTROS in The Netherlands.

The Malta Shipbuilding in Marsa has already played host to an event in recent months with the Music & Steel Festival featuring acts such as; Red Electrick, Tribali, The Rifffs and Airport Impressions amongst others. The acoustics in the venue are astonishing and will provide a fantastic setup for what should prove to be a great show. We urge you to stay tuned to even through Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news about the 2014 edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Malta.


The news portal of the Public Broadcasting Services, TVM has just published a story in relation to the 2014 edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, stating that the venue will be none other than the Malta Shipbuilding in Marsa. It won't be the first major music event to take place though considering that the Music & Steel Festival featuring well known bands such as; Airport Impressions, Red Electrick and Tribali amongst others took place on the 30th March.

Whilst a proper announcement is yet to be made by the Official Website of the Junior Eurovision, this was announced during a meeting between Minister Manuel Mallia and European Broadcasting Union Supervisor Vladislav Yakovlev. It is expected that several countries wish to partake in the event for the very first time including; Italy, Ireland and Hungary although negotiations are at an early stage between the Public Broadcasting Services, the European Broadcasting Union and the respective broadcasters. 

Gaia Cauchi brought the competition to Malta following her success with the song The Start co-written with Elton Zarb, Matt Mercieca and Gillian Attard. This year, Malta will be represented by Ti Lascio Una Canzone Winner; Federica Falzon. We urge you to stay tuned to even on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news about the 2014 edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest.
