Victoria’s La Stella Band is gearing up for the sixth edition of RockAstra, the popular rock music spectacle, led by Maestro Sigmund Mifsud.
Independence Square, in Victoria, Gozo, will be the place to be this Saturday evening, the 8th of June, when the music will be getting underway at 9.00pm.
In the past years, RockAstra has established itself as the go-to outdoor musical event in the local calendar and yet again it will provide another opportunity for local budding artists presented by the Astra Theatre as well as established local talent.
This year’s vocal artists will feature an exciting line up of the best Gozitan and Maltese talent who will perform the tunes of immortal repertoire ranging including Queen, Deep Purple and Andrew Lloyd Webber. Popular music personality, Carlo Borg Bonaci will host the event.
The La Stella Philharmonic Society said that it has been invited to participate in this year’s weekender of music organised in Gozo by the Ministry for Gozo during the long weekend of the Sette Giugno Public Holiday, between Thursday, the 6th and Sunday, the 9th of June – Gozo Pops and Rocks.
The event is being held in collaboration with the Victoria Local Council as part of the Victoria Day celebrations. RockAstra is also supported by Festivals Malta through the Rock ‘N Malta Fund, Malta Tourism Authority, General Soft Drinks and Distinct Homes.
Seating, which is free of charge, will be available on a first come first served basis.
