St. Kitts Music Market at St. Kitts Music Festival
ZIZ News…May 19, 2010 – Local recording artists and bands will have another reason to love the St. Kitts Music Festival, this year, as they will now be able to sell their music to thousands of festival patrons.
Kittitian reggae artist and President of Pull Phactor Entertainment, Masud Sadiki, recently got the “green light” from the St. Kitts Music Festival Committee to implement his brain child dubbed the ST. KITTS MUSIC MARKET™, at this year’s festival.
The ST. KITTS MUSIC MARKET™ was created to maximize on the music sales and promotion opportunities that are presented year after year, during the annual festival. This venture will offer a one -stop music shopping experience for visitors and nationals alike. There will be all genres of music produced by a wide range of local artists, available at the ST. KITTS MUSIC MARKET™. Though it is called the ST. KITTS MUSIC MARKET™, music from artists from the sister island Nevis will also be available. Additionally, all regional and international acts performing on this year’s festival will be afforded the opportunity to sell their music and even arrange autograph signing of their merchandise at the ST. KITTS MUSIC MARKET™.
There will be two music shops at two separate locations. One shop will be located at the Independence Square in downtown Basseterre, and this will be open from 10am – 5pm daily for the duration of the festival. The other shop will be strategically located inside Warner Park at the festival venue, and will be open from 6pm until the concerts end nightly.
iLOVE SO iBUY St.KITTS MUSIC!, is the catchy and very important slogan for the ST. KITTS MUSIC MARKET™. This is intended to be used by all local artists, nationals, fans and supporters of all St. Kitts music.
“St. Kitts has been making great music even before I started wearing diapers, and I feel that all of us nationals should be proud of where we are coming from and where we are today musically. There are some great calypso, soca and soul songs from the 70’s & 80’s for example, that are only heard on our local radio stations and we are encouraging the artists and managers to make these music available at the ST. KITTS MUSIC MARKET™” said Masud. He also thanked Honourable Minister Richard Skerritt, Mr Faron Lawrence and the entire festival committee for their enthusiastic support for The ST. KITTS MUSIC MARKET™.
All local acts wishing to have their music sold at the ST. KITTS MUSIC MARKET™ should contact Masud at 869-662-9602 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
