Brass band concerts by the sea have become the norm during the hot, summer months in Gozo.
The Culture Office within the Ministry for Gozo, said that is has always supported and nurtured these events.
This year, there will be an added extra, with the first edition of the Gozo Brass Festival 2017 -with four Brass Bands playing both at Mgarr and Marsalforn Bays during the month of August.
