2004 Congaline festival


Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office John Williams speaking at the official opening of the 2004 Congaline festival at Dover Playing Field said “There have been a number of queries and rumours with respect to the festival – where it is going and what is likely to happen. As I said to you, it will continue to change and we will continue to develop it.

‘Reggae Night’“But I can assure you one thing, and that is, the festival will live on. What name it will be given in the future, I really couldn’t say, but with certainty there will be a festival and the Congaline Festival will develop and grow,”

Friday night was ‘Reggae Night’ during Congaline 2004 and there was an impressive lineup of entertainers.

This year marks the tenth anniversary of the inaugural Congaline Street Festival. Back in 1994, it was a week-long “mini-Carnival” with a jump up along the South Coast of the island featuring T-shirt bands, free concerts on Dover Playing Field each night, calypso releases and a beauty show among its attractions. That was then. Ten years later, the “Congaline Street Festival” has evolved into the “Congaline Music Festival”, a three-day series of concerts on Dover Playing Field whose profile has become so low that this year rumours were circulating about its demise. While the music festival idea is not a bad one, the increasingly low profile has made me wonder whether Congaline has much longer to live. < Read more >
