Farsons Beer Festival 2020 cancelled

This is the first time since the first edition that the festival is not taking place.

The cancellation of this year’s edition of the Farsons Beer Festival due to the current situation has been announced.

In a statement, Simonds Farsons Cisk plc said that this decision was not taken lightly; however in times of such unprecedented uncertainty this was their only viable option.

“We very much hope that the situation in Malta and Gozo will have improved by the end of July, however even if it has, we are not able to plan for a festival on such a large scale when authorities cannot guarantee that mass gatherings will be possible in the summer.

This is the first time since the first edition in 1981 that the Farsons Beer Festival is not taking place.

“The cancellation of the festival undoubtedly comes as a blow to our incredible crew, partners, suppliers, artists, vendors and sponsors who work so hard to make this event the success that it is. We look forward to welcoming you to our 40th edition in 2021 with a line-up of fantastic artists and performers that we are proud to host on our stages each year. Until then, stay safe!” the statement concluded.
