Lukaotem Gud Santo Festival

Fest’Napuan’s sister festival, the Lukaotem Gud Santo Festival, will take place at Unity Park in Luganville on the 21st and 22nd of September 2012. This date, the weekend before the Fest'Napuan Festival in Port Vila, will enable overseas musicians to perform in Santo and the growing number of Santo musicians  to perform for their home audience. The Lukaotem Gud Santo festival has as its theme “Mekem i Klin mo Grin – Rispektem Land, Rispektem Kalja” (Keep it clean and green, respect our land, respect our culture). The festival emphasises environmental awareness (with activities carried out in schools and churches in the period leading up to the festival) and respect for local custom (this year there will be 175 performers from 12 different custom groups). It is intended to be a family-friendly event; alcohol and drugs are not permitted. Contact Rita, mobile no.7768550 for information. Visit fan page on facebook
