Youth Fest & the Bunji Garlin Concert in the west


Youth Fest and the Bunji Garlin Concert are scheduled to be held in the western end of Queen’s Park Savannah in Port-of-Spain, says promoter Randy Glasgow. In fact, Youth Fest, which is scheduled for January 27th may be the first event to test the new site originally earmarked to host only the Panorama 2007 semi-finals.

However, Pan Trinbago president Patrick Arnold said yesterday the use of the venue for these events depended on the approval of the National Carnival Commission (NCC) board. Meanwhile, sources say the NCC clubhouse is scheduled to be demolished by the end of this week, given the Urban Development Corporation of T&T’s selection of a contractor for the project.

If the green light is given for the events, the fears of panmen that a private promoter would take advantage” of the relocation of the finals and host a “big concert” in PoS will virtually be realised. The premiere of the Bunji Garlin Concert is scheduled on February 17th, Carnival Saturday—the same day as Panorama finals. In a phone interview yesterday, Glasgow denied that the staging of the former International Soca Monarch concert would adversely affect the attendance at Panorama.
