Bonfire Festival ready to light up this weekend
It’s all set to go and expect a real fired-up night of the best Solomon Islands music and that of Fiji as the first ever Bonfire music festival ready to explode in Honiara on Saturday night at Pacific Crown Casino Hotel.
The Solomon Telekom sponsored festival has been profoundly shared on social media and today the popular faces that will light up the night faced the press to promise one thing: “We will put on our very best during the bonfire.”
At the core of the festival are two of Solomon Islands’ music sensations Jahboy and Jaro Local along with Fijians’ Ratu and Billy T of VT1S.
“We are looking forward for this first ever Bonfire in our country,” Jah Local told the press.
He promised the bonfire-goers that he will also perform his newly released single ‘Olobaut’.
Like Jaro Local, Jaboy has vowed to put on his best performance. These local sensations who are also very popular in the region and had performed many times abroad said this Bonfire is also an opportunity for them to perform at home for their fans.
The Fijians’ Ratu and Billy said it was a privilege to be invited to share the same stage with the Solomon Islands musicians. They said Solomon Islands music is very popular in Fiji right now and big names like Jaro Local and Jahboy are household names there.
“It will be an honour to share the stage with them,” added Ratu.
The Fijian duo pledged to deliver their best and to entertain the Solomon Islands crowd on Saturday night.
