Promise of a rocking festival

THE Jim Beam Uprising Festival of music, dance and light is all set to rock Fiji's Adventure Capital — Pacific Harbour on Saturday.

Organisers of the event, Uprising Beach Resort and Pacific Coast Events & Promotions are promising revellers that the third instalment of the annual festival will not disappoint.

The festival will see some of Fiji's most renowned local musicians and performers join international bands to be a part of the 12-hour straight festival, and hopes are high that the festival will continue to grow in popularity.

For the owner of Pacific Coast Events and Promotions, Darlene Underwood the festival had been a labour of love that started in 2009.

She said the festival first began under a different name then and was held at the Arts Village after only three weeks of preparation and a starting budget of $0.
