Venue Change
The New England Music Festival announced today that they are changing the venue of the show from the Bushnell Park to a much bigger and secure Dillon Stadium located downtown Hartford at 250 Huyshope Avenue. When asked the reason for the change, Promoter Ardie “Cuban” Wallace of Under One Umbrella stated that this venue gives them more flexibility with parking and a comfortable atmosphere. “At Dillon Stadium, we have two parking lots at the stadium for over 1,600 cars.” Said Wallace. “Bushnell is a great park but with the lineup, this is the best decision and Dillon is only about a mile away.” Moving to Dillon Stadium also means seating for the general admission and an up close and personal view for those with VIP tickets. When asked about ticket sales Wallace said, “if I was you and you haven’t receive your ticket I would get it now because we don’t have a bigger venue and when the tickets are sold out, they are sold out. I encourage everyone to get their tickets immediately if they want to see the show.”
The New England Music Festival was created to enhance the celebration of the West Indian heritage and provide families within our community and surrounding areas an opportunity for fun, food and music.

The New England Music Festival was created by Megatech and Solar Entertainment and is anticipated to be New England’s premier annual music festival. An all day event with fun, food and music is catering to the entire family. We anticipate over 100 accredited media members with representatives from all over the U.S and the New England area.

Promoted by “Under One Umbrella,” the festival will be on August 1, 2009 at the Dillon Stadium in downtown Hartford, CT. The inaugural festival looks to please everyone with performances by Beers Hammond and Tarrus Riley. Throw in Ray, Goodman & Brown, the Chilites and it’s a ladies night to remember. On the dancehall side features the Gully God Movado, Bounty Killer, Duane Stephenson, Macka Diamond, and much more. With an emphasis to please everyone, throw in the Soca Queen Alison Hinds and Hip Hop artist Fat Joe and you have a day to remember. Other performances include legendary King Yellowman, Brigadier Jerry, Culture, Baby Demus and Mikey Demus of the Demus Family.

With such a diverse line up, The New England Music Festival is expecting well over 10,000 music lovers.
