Winter Moods will be holding a special and intimate concert to celebrate their thirty-year anniversary. This was announced today during a press conference at Fort St Elmo, Valletta where the concert will be hosted on June 13.

Winter Moods are renowned for producing some of the most popular songs in Malta. Their memorable 2010 concert at the Granaries in Floriana attracted a record-breaking crowd of over 10,000 people.

“This time we wanted to do something different,” said Winter Moods frontman Ivan Grech. “We are going for a smaller venue, to be able to give our audience a more intimate performance. The newly restored Fort St Elmo is the perfect historical backdrop for our concert – it is spectacular.

“We promise a special performance which will take us through a journey of 30 years of Winter Moods. We also wanted to make it unique by adding another element to the concert. Every single cent from the ticket sales will be donated to Puttinu Cares,” Grech said.

“It has been our dream for a while. We wanted to organise an event for Puttinu, where they receive all the proceeds, not just the profits. Thanks to the partners who have joined us for this event, it will actually happen.”

Tickets are now available from at €15 for general standing and at €25 for the inner circle which also includes a copy of Winter Moods’ latest album ‘The Journey’. The audience will be limited to 3,000 people.

“Winter Moods are Malta’s top band, and their concerts have always attracted the biggest crowds in terms of local performances. The band has consistently superseded itself and we are delighted to be part of this special 30th anniversary performance,” said Rennie Zerafa of Puttinu Cares.

“Puttinu has a special relationship with Ivan and Winter Moods, we have worked very closely together in recent years. Their Xemx/Miss You EP raised thousands of euros for our projects. We are looking forward to June 13 for another unforgettable night.”

Earlier this year Winter Moods released their sixth album, The Journey, which has been hailed as their best work to date by music critics. The album includes hit songs ‘Days of my Life’, ‘Everlasting’ and ‘Flowers and Cash’.
