New Executive Director of the Dominica Festivals Commission (DFC), Claudine Springer, has announced that 18 artistes will be revealed for the line-up of this year’s World Creole Music Festival (WCMF).
She stated that the artistes will be named at the launching of the WCMF, to be held at the Anchorage Hotel, on Wednesday evening. “We’re going to reveal 18 artistes.”
“We’re going to reveal 18 artistes,” she noted.
WCMF 2015 was not held due to the effects of the Tropical Storm Erika which devastated sections of the island in August last year.
The launching ceremony will take the form of a cocktail and will be broadcast and streamed live on DDA and DFC portals, as well as the organizations’ channel on Youtube. The event will also be streamed regionally and internationally.
Springer remarked that the line up is comparable to anywhere in the region.
“Sometimes, in the past, you only announce two headliners, [but] we’re coming with a strong contingency of performers. That line-up is comparable to anywhere in the region right now,” she stated.
Springer expressed her excitement for the event, noting that the DFC will be “going big this year—all out.”
