The 9th Malta Militarty Tattoo will be held on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th October 2012.

The Malta Tattoo is the annual major tourism draw, and is a reflection of Malta’s military music heritage. The event has earned a well deserved reputation for offering its audiences an exciting and vibrant blend of music and performances by a Maltese and international line-up of talent. This unique gathering of performers from various countries continues to be a yearly highlight in the local calendar.

The Maltese are very fond of band music. This is reflected in the fact that in Malta there are 90 active band clubs with a total of 3,931 persons who are resident or trainee band players. With a total band club membership of over 30,000, these form over six per cent of the total population aged 5-84 years.

These figures, even by themselves, show the popularity of band music in Malta. But if taken against a background of about 1,250 band programmes performed yearly within the locality of the band clubs and outside their locality, we get the real feeling of the Maltese population towards band music. On the other hand, the active presence of tourists in band marches and musical programmes indicates that band music is an added value to our tourism product.

The Malta Tattoo is a pleasant conclusion of the Maltese festive season in which band clubs have the lion’s share of the entertainment. The event will this year feature bands from Italy, Poland, Scotland, England and a top Roller Skating group from Estonia. These will participate together with the local Zurrieq Scouts Pipes and Drums, Marsa Scouts Pipes and Drums plus Corps of Drums, Wallace Pipes and Drums, Malta Police Precision Drill Team, Malta Police Band and the Armed Forces of Malta Band.
