All systems are a go for the March 19 staging of the Best Dressed Fun In The Son Festival, which is slated to take place on the grounds of the UWI Mona Bowl, St. Andrew.
The exceptional event which has garnered a reputation for its unmatched activities and stellar musical lineup, will be launched next week Thursday, February 24 at the Church on The Rock at 7 p.m. The launch which has been likened to a theatrical production, will set the tone for this year’s proceedings under the Fun In The Son banner.
According to Tommy Cowan, head of Glory Music, the operators of the event, “This year’s launch and event will be an unforgettable one. At the launch, we will be outlining all the activities and artistes both the patrons and the media will be able to look forward to on this year’s event. So we are inviting everyone out, because we guarantee there will be something there of interest for everyone and we’ll be pulling a lot of surprises out of the hat, so to speak.”
This year’s Best Dressed Fun In The Son marks a return to the event’s activities in previous years. In recent years, the event which became a one day event, mainly focusing on the concert, will again be expanded to become a four day series of events. Among the activities planned beginning on Thursday, March 17 are: a Word and Worship session, A Gospel Jazz Night and the grand culmination – the grand concert on Saturday, March 19.
“The Best Dressed Fun In The Son series is about having fun with the family, your friends and great clean music and fun. Entry to the event is grand finale, which is the concert will be free and you name the activity and we will have it there,” says Cowan.
