How does a big street party in the heart of a capital city sound? If that has got you excited, then make sure to head to Valletta on December 31st. While the whole city will be bursting with cheer and joy, the main celebration will be taking place at St. George’s Square, home to the beautiful Grandmaster’s Palace. 

The organisers have prepared a wonderful line-up consisting of Malta’s favourite pop star Ira Losco and well-known local DJ Pierre Cordina who will ensure the audience is well pumped up for when the clock strikes midnight.  Get ready for great music, spectacular fireworks and the most thrilling night of your life. The best part of it all is that entrance is completely free!

For those wishing to spend the night in Valletta in a more calming ambience, then Valletta’s romantic waterfront is the place to be. Lined up with one restaurant next to another, offering a variety of tasty cuisines, this is the perfect place for those looking to welcome the new year with a great dinner and a glass of champagne in hand. We recommend booking a table beforehand in any of the restaurants there to avoid disappointment. 

Free entertainment will be taking place all night including children’s animation, live bands and to top it all off, a fireworks’ and confetti display at the stroke of midnight. All this with the breath-taking view of the Grand Harbour in the background. What more can you ask for?

Alternatively, take a 20-minute ferry ride to Gozo and join in the vibrant celebrations in Gozo’s capital of Victoria. The Gozitans are renowned for their lively street parties during Carnival in February, and this year’s New Year’s Eve celebration will have no shortage of fun either. In fact, top international artist Jonas Blue will be there alongside beloved local band The Travellers, amongst many others. This is surely an event not to be missed. Did we mention it’s also free of charge?

There you have it, your New Year’s Eve 2019 in Malta sorted. With all the good times that await you, we guarantee you won’t ever regret having booked flights to Malta just in time for New Year’s Eve!
