Members of the public attending the Jamaica Independence Village nightly shows are reminded that no vuvuzela’s will be allowed in to the National Arena.
The Director of Events and Production at the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission, Gregory Simms, who noted that not only are the popular noise makers distracting during shows, but they also affect the audio quality of the recordings of the events.
“We understand that our patrons are excited to show their support for their favorite contestants, but we are asking that all vuvuzelas be left at home, Simms said, while clarifying that the noise-makers will be allowed at the annual Grand Gala celebration, to be held at the National Stadium on Tuesday, August 6.
“We also want to remind patrons that no weapons are allowed at our events and that we promote a smoke free and safe environment, guided by exceptional police presence. The JCDC remains focused on putting on fun, family-friendly entertainment and so we are committed to ensuring that all our patrons have an exceptional, but safe experience,” Simms continued.
All nightly shows will be live-streamed on the JCDC’s website: www.jcdc.gov.jm.
