‘The beLand Music Festival’ is an open-air event dedicated to music and entertainment, involving a wide range of local and international artists. After the great success through the past five years with thousands of people attending, the 6th edition of this event is being organized between the 5th and 8th July 2017, once again at Bulebel Ind. Estate in Zejtun.


This event started in 2011 as a way to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Beland Band. The outcome of that activity was so much beyond our expectations that we could not resist organizing another one on the following year and this gave birth to the beLand Music Festival becoming an annual event.
