The 2018 Thurston Food and Mu­sic Fes­ti­val was launched at the Fiji Broad­cast­ing Corporation in Suva on Wed­nes­day 16, 2018. The event is brought by KNOX En­ter­tain­ment and Gold FM sup­ported by Par­adise Bev­er­ages and Suva City Coun­cil.

The fes­ti­val will be held at Suva’s Thurston Gar­den on the 14th of July from 11am to 10pm.

FBC man­ager ra­dio Shammi Lochan Lal said the aim was to pro­mote the value of live per­for­mances and show­case a live fes­ti­val of in­ter­na­tional stan­dards for all to en­joy.

“This year’s fes­ti­val is gear­ing up to be the big­gest live mu­sic event on the cal­en­dar held right in the heart of Suva,” Mrs Lal said. The co-di­rec­tor and event man­ager of Knox En­ter­tain­ment, El­lana Kalounisiga said last year’s launch at­tracted more than 1500 peo­ple from all works of life.

She said or­gan­is­ers were ex­pect­ing a larger crowd this year and prom­ises an event not to be missed.

“The fes­ti­val is full of ac­tiv­i­ties with some of Fiji’s best live per­form­ers on stage for the du­ra­tion of the day with 10 bands plus dance groups per­form­ing,” Ms Kalounisiga said.

Tick­ets will go on sale from the 25th of May at $25 for adult while en­try will be free for kids un­der the age of 14.

The tick­ets can be pur­chased at the FBC of­fice, the ROC café and Gin­ger Kitchen. Edited by Percy Kean
