Upcoming festival

The 2016 (VII) GISF will be held on Saturday, 23 April, at the Tercentenary Sports Hall, Gibraltar.  Early interest indicates that we will be receiving entries from more countries than ever before. The level of competition is therefore undoubtedly going to be extremely keen.  Don’t miss it!




GSF 2009 POSTPONED
Acknowledging the difficulties presented by the current economic crisis, both for our valued sponsors, as well as those GISF finalists who would have to travel to Gibraltar to participate in the Finals Gala, the GISF 2009 Board of Directors has decided to postpone the event. The Finals Gala will now be held on Saturday, 27 March, 2010. The venue remains the same, and the deadline for submissions has been extended accordingly. Please check our website for all the relevant details.
Full details are specified in the Rules page. Fill in the form, send us your music and good luck!
