The 2019 edition of Leone Goes Pop will be hosted by renowned radio host Dorian Cassar. Colin Attard directs the Leone Band as the main protagonist, together with Chris Grech, Amber Bondin, Denise Mercieca, Sarah Bonnici and Mario Caruana, as well as the Aurora's own youth choir in a concert with a set list of some contemporary pop and rock hits that currently dominate the charts, as well as some immortal evergreens. All of this musical bonanza will be typically clad in a sheer spectacle of lights, colour and surprise act as audiences have grown to expect from any Leone Goes Pop edition.

Back in 2008, the Leone Band pioneered the very first ever experimental pop concert in Gozo. Since then, top-most singers Maltese singers have appeared in 11 spectacular productions bringing to the audiences in Malta and Gozo some of the most popular musical classics from the world of pop and rock.
