(PRESS RELEASE) – This Sunday September 23, will be pure vibes, with the staging of the 2018 finals of the annual Heineken Green Synergy DJ Competition here in Saint Lucia.
The finals will once again be held at the Fond D’or Heritage Park, where north, south, east and west converge, in the musical dynasty of the competition, for DJ supremacy.
So what can fans expect this Sunday besides the energized excitement that comes with Heineken Green Synergy?
“Well we will definitely be switching things up a bit this year and taking the competition to another level,” Junior Brand Manager-Global Brands (WLBL) Mindy-Luquiana Chicot revealed.
“We are extremely appreciative of the level of support this event has received over the years and this year has been no different leading up to the finals. And so every year we try to give fans something different and for 2018 we have added a component whereby the skills DJs will have a guest local artiste perform during their set,” Chicot says.
She went on to explain that the global phenomenon of DJs playing “live” sets often incorporate “live” performances and Heineken Green Synergy saw this year as opportune for another area in which to develop the DJs.
Ahead of Sunday’s finals the DJs will also have one last chance to brush up on their skills, by attending a workshop facilitated by professionals in the field. The workshop will be held Saturday September 22 at the commercial offices of WLBL.
After this it will be showtime, and organizers have assembled a production team to create a magical ambience at the venue. This will include new screen features with graphics, photo booth, sound, lights and effects to help Amplify the beat on Sunday.
