Due to the Covid-19 emergency, Rock the South will not take place this year. However, instead of simply cancelling the event we have decided to develop it into an online music experience. 2020 will be the year of Rock the Quarantine!
The event, which is set to air for free on Youtube live and Facebook live will be a program mix of Maltese and international bands and solo artists playing whilst social distancing, to the entertainment of viewers in Malta and beyond. On the 15th, 16th and 17th of May, Rock the Quarantine will broadcast a segment of around 3 hours live on Facebook. Be sure to follow our page to join in.
For weeks, the Maltese population, together with the populations of the home countries of many of our international bands have been asked to stay at home for extended periods of time. People are stressed, concerned, and sometimes, just plain bored at home. We believe we’ve found a way to boost morale and entertain thousands of people in various countries, all the while promoting Malta and Maltese artists.
More than just a music event, Rock the Quarantine will include humour, personal messages, and all-round entertainment.
We have set up a crowdfunding fundraiser to support us and the bands/artists, with loads of great RTS merch to grab plus other things like vinyl. Check that out here!
