There is also a jamming area where different artists can do and play different instruments, either the ones which the festival provides or the ones you bring with you.
The jamming area creates a beautiful atmosphere of people and energy coming together to create music and art.
You can also take a stroll along with the stalls and see what each vendor is selling.

A lot of people camp and for a good reason. You become friends with everyone, you create a small community of people with similar interests and love for the festival and everything it encompasses.
The Farsons Beer Festival
This a national event. For two weeks straight Ta’ Qali grounds are once again turned into a beer-loving festival and the best thing is that it is a free entrance.
The beer festival is mainly split up into two, the main stage, which has all of Malta’s biggest acts, bands like Manatapu, Tribali, Ira Losco etc, and on the other stage, the Alternative stage we have all of Malta’s rock, heavy metal, rap groups and other genres, all coming together to create an electrifying experience for all the festival-goers.
Along with great music and energy, you can buy beer for various different locations, you can either buy pints or half pints and you have a selection of locally sourced beer and foreign beers, ciders and ales.
This event lasts for a whole two weeks, so you can see your favourite bands, book time-off and enjoy the festival.
Always remember, if you are going to drink plan from before and book a taxi or bus. Never drink and drive!
Glitch is an annual techno festival, and it is getting bigger and bigger every year.
