Malta Festival, a unique meeting of artists and intellectuals, often representing opposing views, has been in the centre of Poznań's cultural life since its conception in 1991. In its original form, the festival concentrated mainly on the alternative theatre. Since then, it widened its scope to include musical performances, concerts, and even went as far as organising a silent disco. This year's festival celebrates its 30th anniversary, and to mark this occasion a special concert was prepared - "Krynicki's Project" during which the compositions of renowned composers, Paweł Szymański, Paweł Mykietyn and Alek Nowak will be performed. The pieces were specially composed to illustrate poems of the well known Poznań's artist, Ryszard Krynicki. The open-air gala concert featuring all Malta friends will end the 30th edition of the festival.
