The text currently on this page needs further work. It was most likely imported or reproduced from a website associated with the subject of the page - possibly through a process involving far-from-perfect machine translation, often with awkward results. It is awaiting the attention of an experienced M3P editor, which could be you. It may be slightly out of date, or may need other elements taken care of appropriately, including proofreading or copy-editing for grammar and style.

Francis Zammit Dimech, will be present for the festival and will present trophies to the winner and runners-up. Special prizes include best interpretation of the song, the best musical arrangement and the song with the best social theme.

The song festival L-Għanja tal-Poplu is undoubtedly one of the most popular musical events of the Maltese islands. It has been held regularly on a yearly basis since 1973, presenting a number of original songs ranging from sarcastic outlooks to life in general, through touching appeals to humanity to the moving melodies of love songs, and all that lies in between. The songs themselves are also very varied in their styles, including folk, pop, classic and rock.

Many well-established songwriters and singers have started off their musical career through their participation in the festival. Indeed, the latter has grown from a small activity between the members of the Youth Travel Circle itself to an event of considerable importance on a national scale. Composers and lyricists are continuously encouraged to present songs that have meaningful and touching verses as well as captivating music. In this way, these songs remain eternally topical, deeply rooted in an ever-changing yet unwavering structure that is our society.
