[www.inewsguyana.com] – The organizers of the Rupununi Music and Arts Festival were presented with a sponsorship cheque of $3M by Minister of Tourism, Cathy Hughes on Monday, August 24.
The festival, established in 2014, was described as an interesting adventure by the organisers. It provides visitors with many opportunities to explore Guyana’s interior before and after the festival weekend.
From bird watching to fishing, walking to riding, it is an exploration of a beautiful country, an eco-oriented event and the musical experience could start from anywhere. The weekend offers ‘a window’ into the rich variety of the world’s music for everyone.
The focus of the festival is to create a pleasant campsite in a wonderful setting, invite some great people with their families and friends and provide some music that maybe you’ll never hear on your radio.
It is an outdoor, camping music event and will take place at Rock View Lodge, Annai from the 18 to the 20 September 2015. The festival itself takes place over 3 days (Friday to Sunday), but the camping area will be open from Thursday until Monday. [Extracted and modified from GINA]
