TT – As phase one of the pilot of the Live Music District (LMD) draws to an end, the T&T Music Company Limited (MusicTT) and the Ministry of Trade and Industry, in collaboration with the Port-of-Spain City Corporation, will host its third Live on the Avenue event. Live on the Avenue III will take place on Sunday, July 1, at Adam Smith Square, Ariapita Avenue, Woodbrook, from 4:30 pm.
Live on the Avenue III will close off phase one of the Live Music District with performances by Hadco Phase II Pan Groove and Nex Chapta.
The Live Music District, which launched in March 2018, has since provided local artistes with the opportunities to showcase their talent at various events and locations throughout the chosen phase one district, the City of Port-of-Spain. Registered artistes have performed in venues such as Radisson Hotel, Hilton Hotel, Smokey and Bunty, Kaiso Blues Café, Xperience Event Centre and the Avenue Pub House to name a few.
“The LMD Brand continues to grow in popularity as people recognise the possibilities that come with such an initiative,” says John Arnold, Chairman of MusicTT.
“Live music is a fundamental pillar of the music industry. The designation of creative, cultural and entertainment districts attracts visitors and therefore creates opportunities for jobs and revenue generation. The creation of a Live Music District is a key strategy which MusicTT undertook, through CreativeTT and the Ministry of Trade and Industry, in order to build and develop the local music industry and the country as a whole.”
