The Malta Music Awards will be turning seventeen in a couple of weeks time as another edition encompassing the very best of the previous year is set to take place at the Malta Fairs and Conventions Centre. In a press conference held this morning at the Grand Hotel Excelsior in Floriana, it was revealed that for the second consecutive year, Mega Music Management and the Public Broadcasting Services will be joining forces to organise a spectacle on a national level, promoting the show across the Maltese Islands as the official awards ceremony. It was also revealed a couple of weeks back and reiterated this morning that the Public Broadcasting Services will be organising a music weekender starting with the Malta Eurovision Song Contest on the 1st and the 2nd February 2013 and then followed by the Malta Music Awards on the 3rd February, all held at the Malta Fairs and Conventions Centre where a masterful stage is being put in place following a large investment by the national broadcaster.

The nominees for each individual award will be published later on tonight within this article because they will be aired for the very first time on Television Malta at around 21:45 CET during the programme Mixage but nevertheless, one should also expect a news bulletin which will support the official launch of the ceremony. Co-Organiser of the Malta Music Awards, Noel Magri stated that there will be eleven (11) awards to be given during the evening, eight (8) of which are competitive and have been judged by a panel of music critics, and another three (3) which have been selected through international recognition and newcomer status. The tickets for the event will be published through www.ooii.com.mt in the coming days and will be priced at just €10, both standing and seated in a bit to keep the prices as low as possible. Those who purchased any tickets for the Malta Eurovision Song Contest can also redeem a ticket for the showcase for free.
