Described as one of the most energised public gatherings in recent times, the 2018 edition of the Digicel Gospel Fest got off to an exciting start last Sunday, April 1st at the Victoria Park, with over 1,500 persons in attendance.
Ahead of Sunday’s Festival launch, Digicel customers had the opportunity to win over 50 tickets, by participating in a number of social media competitions. Customers also got free tickets when they paid their bills in full and/or activated a Quick Pick bundle in stores.
Fanta Williams, Digicel’s COO said of the event, “Digicel is committed to enhancing the National Gospel Festival year after year, having been a strong sponsor of the event for the past 15 years and staying true to our promise to connect our customers to the things they love most – in this case gospel music.” Williams added, “Patrons can expect to see added attractions at this year’s Festival including: exclusive top up offers, opportunities to win phones, drinks and services among other things.”
Michael Peters, Chairperson of the National Gospel Festival Committee thanked Digicel for always supporting the Festival, adding that the attendance had also grown as a result of Digicel’s input, through its special promotions around the event.
He added that by all appearances, patrons had a great time at the opening concert and were pleased with the combination of local and regional line-up of performers who included: J Prince out of Trinidad and Tobago, De Warrior out of Barbados, Caywama Edwards, Ronnie Richardson and others.
The Digicel Gospel Fest concludes on April 29th. Persons interested in attending other events on the calendar can check out Digicel’s social media pages for further information.
