The Dominica Festivals Committee (DFC) is satisfied with sales of tickets for the 18th Annual World Creole Music Festival (WCMF), which kicks off tonight.

Chairman of the DFC, Colin Piper revealed at a press conference on Thursday that sales of season tickets this year exceeded that of last year.

“As a result of the special we had we exceeded last year’s season tickets special by quite a bit, so we are happy about that,” Piper stated. “So far the sale of season tickets has gone very well and so we are comfortable that we will have a large crowd in the park to enjoy the WCMF.”

Based on that, Piper is confident that there will be a great turnout at the event.

“We know that there are going to be people in the park, quite a large number of people,” he said.

Season tickets were sold on special promotions at $200 for the entire month of September as compared to the normal price of $325.

Patrons also got chances to win tickets for this year’s festival.

Two major acts will not be appearing at the festival.

Recently prime minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, announced Flavour, from Nigeria, was being axed due to the Ebola crisis in west Africa.

Just one day before the festival, on Thursday, the DFC announced that Mavado will not be performing due to unforeseen travel circumstances.
