5th Belize Park Fest to Be Held on Sunday

Daily, between six and nine p.m., at the Memorial Park in Belize City, a small scale concert would end the day’s workshop for Belize Music Week, which is ongoing. Belizeans artists get the opportunity to showcase their talents to residents and others artists in attendance. But the week-long activities culminate on Sunday with the fifth annual Belize Park Fest at the ITVET Compound on Freetown Road. This year, the music expo is expanded to include an artist corner, food court and the corporate booths. The highlight will be a mega concert featuring Belizean artists as well as international soca artist, Patrice Roberts. Public Relations Director of Flavaz Entertainment, Andazi, told News Five more about the event.

“The majority of Flavaz events as most people know is centered around Belizean talent and culture; we usually only do two or so major international shows for the year. The park fest is in its fifth year and it has always been focused on bringing a variety of Belizean music genres to the stage. So on Sunday we are going to have everything from the reggae rock and hip-hop group, Verge of Umbra; we have Denise Castillo with her reggae; TR Shine with soca; we have That Bwai Swag with some rap; we have M.I.K., who was previously a rap artist and now he is experiencing with some dancehall so we are going to see how that goes for him. We’re have X-Band, who is going to do some punta; we have Consego, who hasn’t performed in a while; Positive Vibes who was recently shooting some videos. All of these people are going to be there and it is going to be a wide variety of talent on the stage. This year we are bringing the corporate companies in the Park Fest. We think it is important that the corporate world recognizes the impact that music can have on their business, and promoting their products. If you look at many of the corporate companies, you need a jingle. Where does that come from? It comes from the artists. So it is all about marketing and collaboration. We have a whole food court with Nacho World and Wing Stop, we have the carnival association coming out. We have a special booth for the artist corner. We are asking artists to submit their videos so that we can stream it on a big screen and hang out around there so that your fans can come and take pictures with you; sell your CDs or whatever merchandise you have. Usually like I said, we only have two major international shows for the year and it’s not an event for the entire family; it is usually late at night and the teenagers can’t come out. We are about to launch the Soca Season in June; the carnival association launched the carnival season in the beginning of May so now we said well let’s keep the vibe going and bring in Patrice Roberts.”

 

The cost to enter the grounds at the ITVET is ten dollars for adults and five dollars for children.
