Altofest is a unique concept for Malta because it takes culture to the people, with various performances in unusual, private spaces. Citizens host international artists in their houses, which then become venues that welcome audiences with several performances, including dance, full-length theatre performances, a live-show combining the language of the environment and technology and audiovisual performances.

The performances will take place over four consecutive weekends between 20th April – 13th May.
