Chairman of the Pure Grenada Music Festival has announced the cancellation of the Pure Grenada Music Festival 2019.
The PGMF team enjoyed and appreciated the amazing responses from organizers, volunteers and patrons alike to PGMF 2016, 2017 & 2018 and were excited about the possibilities for PGMF 2019. However, the Pure Grenada Music Festival has been a great financial responsibility and expense that Mr. Burkhalter has undertaken for the past three years, and although he’s been happy to do what he can to ensure the success of this event. This he states has been his commitment to ensure the success of an event he has always truly believed in, inclusive of the many opportunities that it could bring to the people of Grenada, he would be unable to shoulder the financial risk a fourth time. An event like this one can only be sustainable with a collaboration between the private and public sectors.
He and his team have been putting forward a great effort to overcome these obstacles, but with just seven months left before the next scheduled festival, he must make the difficult, but necessary, decision to cancel next year’s event.
Mr. Burkhalter assures the public that he remains committed to music and to its development here in Grenada and will certainly find alternative avenues to inspire the growth and progress among the aspiring Grenadian musicians.
The PGMF committee and entire team certainly hope that the future may offer solutions to the present difficulties that they are facing and that the Pure Grenada Music Festival will once again be a reality on our islands shores.
