(PRESS RELEASE) – Emerging and seasoned St. Lucian Artistes are anxiously looking forward to demonstrate their International status on December 17th at the fifteenth annual Youth Fest.
Youth Fest 2017 would be showcasing 100% pure Saint Lucian talent and originality. For the first time, Artistes competing for the coveted title of Youth Star 2017 will render only original tracks. The Youth Star Artistes will compete for 1st and 2nd place positions in two individual categories; “Teens” and “Twenties”, from which the 2017 Youth Star will be selected.
In addition to the Youth Star Competition, Youth Fest will showcase Dancers, Models and Featured Artistes under the theme “FAMILY FIESTA”. Internationally recognized St. Lucians Artistes, RickyT, Freezy, Mighty and Subance, Hotness International, Shemmy J, Nerdy, Sergie, Rob ZI & Phyness and others will dispel the notion that “Local talent is not worth paying for”.
Youth Fest is a Family Event focusing on spreading positive messages and has a special section for children. St. Lucians are urged to “turn up” to the Phillip Marcellin Grounds, Vieux Fort on Sunday December 17th from 2 PM and support their own and assist St. Lucian Artistes to be part of the recognized international entourage.
The organizers of Youth Fest are particularly pleased that the National Lotteries Authority has come to their rescue as the main sponsor at the time when big business and the Events Company of St. Lucia were unable to assist. In addition, the Artistes wish to express their gratitude to the Windward Islands (Winera) Packaging Company and the platinum sponsors, M & C Group of Companies, ECGC, Carib Pearl Rice, Bank of St. Lucia, ODEL, Caribbean Bike Life, Martha’s Tyre Service, Southern Sales, Stone Culture, Super Malt, Chemical Manufacturing & Investment Company, and Piton Water for their financial assistance.
