Festival Song Road Show -Port Antonio

The second in an exciting series of CLARO Jamaica Festival Song Road Parties which kicked off on June 19 continues this Saturday (June 26) at the Port Antonio Square in Portland. Last week, the ten finalists who are featured on the 2010 album “True Jamaican Patriot”, gave their debut performances before a filled Junction Square in St. Elizabeth and will continue their campaign for votes at the show this weekend.

Further road parties are also slated for Saturday, July 3 at the Water Square in Falmouth followed by the staging of the first ever Festival Song Race Day at Caymanas Park on Friday, July 10, also sponsored by CLARO.

At the launch of the 2010 competition held on June 17, the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission (JCDC), organizer of the Festival Song, announced that the 2010 winner will take home a one million dollar cash package courtesy of Claro and a brand new 2010 Nissan Tiida courtesy of Fidelity Motors Ltd; the richest prize package in the history of the competition.

Other corporate sponsors involved, include Real Vibes Party Wine, who will be providing party specials at the road parties, Excelsior, Ting, Capital and Credit Merchant Bank, the CHASE fund and the KSAC along with several media partners. 

The 2010 staging of the Festival Song competition is poised to restore and revitalize a sense of patriotism and nationalism across the island. The winning song is also set to be used as the musical theme for the national independence celebrations schedule to kick off later this year.
