    Could any sensible person tell me why you would have all those artist for one night? This is the way our tax money are being wasted every year. You have to find the money to pay all those foreign artists but local ones have to wait months. The next thing they bringing artist that come on stage with their pants falling off promoting gangsta life in this place. A lot of those artist have police record, however they are able to come just to make money. We have to set standards and uphold them. We asking what happen to our youths, while we are the same people that are promoting this violence life to them through these ganga smoking artist. The truth will always hurt. I been there, I know what I am talking about. The Virgin Gorda Festival Committee is now bankerupt due to that same thing of bringing unnecessary artist. This is about their second consecutive year of bankeruptcy. Fifty thousand dollars in the red. Lord send help.
