The La Stella Philharmonic Band of Victoria, Gozo, has announced the second edition of ROCKASTRA, a celebration of rock music featuring the La Stella Band, together with a host of leading artistes under the musical direction of Sigmund Mifsud.
The La Stella Band said that “Mro Mifsud, who in 2013 was appointed as Assistant Musical Director of the Band, needs no introduction in the local music scene, mainly in the attainment of large scale concerts.”
Following on from last year’s “hugely successful first edition of ROCKASTRA, which was performed in front of a packed audience in Independence Square last June, the La Stella Band will again be presenting the general public with the opportunity to enjoy another magical night of rock music, lighting and special effects.”
The La Stella Band has billed ROCKASTRA 2014 for Friday, the 6th of June, starting at 9.00pm, in Republic Street, Victoria.
The Band said that over the next fews days they will announce further details of the event, such as the participating artistes. “This year’s edition will be seeking to heighten what was introduced in last year’s first edition, particularly the promotion of promising local talent in this genre of music,” the Band added.
In only its second edition ROCKASTRA “is already proving to be a well established event in the cultural calendar of Malta and Gozo,” the Band said. “ROCKASTRA 2014 falls on the eve of a Public Holiday, which should help and encourage the Maltese public in planning a visit to Gozo for this major musical attraction.”
The concert is free of charge and everyone is warmly invited to attend this night of music and entertainment for all ages.
