On the 1st August 2013, a significant portion of the local crowd will be heading to The Granaries in Floriana to attend the annual summer concert given by Joseph Calleja. In a press conference held earlier this afternoon at the Xara Lodge, it was unveiled that for the very first time ever, the standing area will be sponsored by the government and will be free of charge for anyone wishing to attend. Tickets for the seating areas will cost between €80 and €200, the same as they have been in recent years. Joseph Calleja is looking forward to the annual summer concert stating that he is proud that despite the economic climate in the rest of Europe, Malta is still putting up such an event which will be filmed in high definition with a total of fourteen (14) cameras.

Special guests for this years' spectacle will include none other than; Gianluca Bezzina, who just returned from the Eurovision Song Contest where on behalf of Malta he finished in eighth place, the best finish since 2005; Rebecca Ferguson, a former first runner-up on the British version of the X Factor who has found fame at home and abroad; Zucchero who will be returning to Malta once more and is set to perform the song Miserere with Calleja and the popular DJ Duo Tenishia who were ranked in the top one hundred DJs in the world. They will be accompanied by the BOV Children's Choir and the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra. 

NNG Promotions, organisers of the summer concert are also in talks with several international broadcasters for television airing abroad. In the meantime, Joseph Calleja has also promised to sing some material off his fifth album, Amore which is out later on this year. What is special about this set is that it has also been recorded in Malta and will most likely be the first ever major release on an international label such as Decca, the classical subsidiary of Universal Music. escflashmalta.com encourages people to attend the concert set to be given by Joseph Calleja and support local artists, especially such who have a habit to represent Malta in the best possible way. Stay tuned for all of the latest news as soon as it becomes available.
