Rock The City 2018

  • Valletta Campus Theatre (map)

So here it is !!!!! The first edition of Rock The City Malta, sister fest of Rock The South Malta. We are extremely excited and honoured to have these amazing bands playing this year.
At the Valletta Campus - University of Malta Theatre
On the 29th of September 2018 
Doors open at 6pm

Our main acts are:

yndi halda (UK)
"A band who are clearly challenging themselves and the very conventions of post-rock...Powerful."

"Epic beauty"

"Vast and ambitious...Braids big choral harmonies, classical string arrangements, dreaminess and beneath it all, pop hooks."

Staghorn (USA)
“Post-rock will always be the thing that is just too good for me. That’s not a bad thing, I love it and I think it’s all beautiful, but I’m always jealous that other people have the capability to make me cry with this goddamn music. So I was thrilled when I was listening to Illinois based band Staghorn‘s new moonlight-filled track “Movements II and III”. It really is gorgeous.”

“Wormwood III feels more like the soundtrack to a stirring drama than it does a rock record, and I love that. If you're a Slint fan, you should definitely pay attention.”

“Strong headed, goal driven and entombed within the spirit of the underground music scene is the Do It Yourself mentality... St. Louis’ Staghorn is very much the prime example of individuals that continuously give to the music scene.”

Plus a bunch of great local acts: 
Eyes to Argus
Robert Farrugia
