We go with a hundred drummers, Malta and Kortrijk is playing Drums, to give it their all on DrumFest Malta. Besides, there is more. We are now Saturday by the city of Valletta was invited. Valletta is the capital of Malta, and in 2018 the Cultural Capital of Europe. We don't know why. Maybe we will get subsidies, who knows.”King Philip
