At the launch of the concert Gozo Minister Justyne Caruana stated that the Citadel should be a mecca for Gozitan culture. Minister Caruana added that this concert should serve as a showcase for local culture, with the participation of many established local artists.The concert will be held at the Gozo Citadel on 9 September.
