ROCK IN THE FOREST IN ITS 7TH YEAR
Now in its seventh year, the annual ‘Rock in the Forest’ concert will this year take place on Saturday, August 25 at Chateau Buskett, limits of Rabat. The live event raises funds for various causes while offering a true feast of classic, modern and contemporary rock hits, among them songs from the likes of Queen, Led Zeppelin, Coldplay, Foo Fighters, The Killers, Aerosmith, Pink Floyd, Muse, Kings of Leon, Linkin Park, Kula Shaker, David Bowie, Guns n’ Roses and many more.
In total, the concert features the participation of 16 local singers and musicians, with this year's edition marking the return of popular guest singer Gianni Zammit and a first time appearance of the popular rock guitarist Wayne Camilleri. The other singers featuring in this year's concert are Georgius Mifsud (Shades of Green), Simaria Galea (X Factor Malta), Diane Micallef (ex-Corkskrew), David Ellul Mercer, Sarah De Marco and Jean Elle Newell.
The Rock in the Forest core band features event founder David Perotti (guitars, vocals), Kristina Perotti (drums), guitarists Carl Tanti, Georgius Mifsud, Daniel Debono, Wayne Camilleri and Mario Saliba, bassist Cliff Smith and drummer Franco Aloisio (both ex-Corkskrew), and keyboardist Sergio Bellizzi.
"I am proud that we are in the seventh year of Rock in the Forest, an event which in its first year was held in my backyard with my kids and a few friends. We eventually moved to Chateau Buskett and hence the name of the event as throughout the years we rocked in the middle of Malta’s only forested area, while raising funds for various NGOs. These last few years have seen hundreds of people attending our concerts, and this year we promise a show to be remembered,” said David Perotti.
Entrance is against a donation of €7, with all proceeds going to the Assistance to Children in Care Association (ACICA).
Doors open at 8pm. Table bookings are available, and diners are encouraged to place orders early to enjoy the show, while the bar area will be open throughout the evening.
Ample parking facilities are available at Chateau Buskett.
