Live Music District is back and set to storm Ariapita Avenue

MusicTT has kicked off Phase III of its Live Music District (LMD) with the return of its free signature event that will take place on from Saturday, March 30 at 6PM at Adam Smith Square.

Featuring pan performances by Desperados Steel Orchestra (Panorama 2019 second place winners), Bishop Anstey High School (BAHS) Steel Ensemble (third place winner of Secondary Schools Panorama) and a host of musical performances by various LMD artistes, 'Turn It Up! Live on the Avenue' promises to be bigger and better than before.

The event will also provide a musical and entertainment experience aimed at establishing the City of Port of Spain as the cultural epicentre of local music genres, renowned the world over, performed live for everyone to enjoy. From Steelpan to Soca, R&B and more, patrons can expect a spectacle that features more entertainment, a choice selection of food truck eats, and surprise performances.

Artiste registration for LMD Phase III is officially open to the public; instrumentalists, soloists, duos, and bands who are interested in being a part of the LMD artiste roster are advised to visit MusicTT's website and check out our new payment rates. 

“MusicTT is continuing its mission to establish the cities of Trinidad and Tobago as entertainment hubs for live music. We see the potential of these spaces as revenue drivers for local businesses, artistes, and industry professionals eager to establish year-round business outside of the typical Carnival season. Our work alongside the collaborative efforts of our partners seek to spotlight the alternatives in local entertainment,” said Melissa Jimenez, MusicTT's General Manager. 

The Live Music District was launched in March of last year and has since provided local artistes with opportunities to showcase their talent at various events and locations throughout the Port of Spain district.

Registered artistes have performed at venues such as D’Bocas, Smokey and Bunty, Xperience Event Centre, Radisson Hotel, Hilton Hotel, Kaiso Blues Café, and Rizzoni’s to name a few, as well as at signature events at the Botanic Gardens, Ariapita Avenue, Adam Smith Square, and Brian Lara Promenade.
