St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): The St. Kitts Music Festival Committee is urging patrons attending the event to refrain from smoking inside the venue.
Speaking at a press conference held Thursday, June 23, at the St. Kitts Marriot Resort, Mr. Val Henry, Public Relations and Marketing Agent for this year’s festival pleaded with patrons to avoid smoking.
“Please do not smoke within the thickness of the crowd. We know some of you may want to smoke cigars, cigarettes, and other things. Go under a tree by yourself and smoke,” Mr. Henry said.
He added that “in 2019, we had to ferry quite a number of people to the medics because they were asthmatic and we do not want anyone to die. You can balance your right to smoke against killing somebody…so please do not smoke in the thickness of the crowd.
We are going to ask the police to intervene if that happens and we may have to ask the artist to stop because we prefer to stop the concert and save lives.”
The 2022 edition of the St. Kitts Music Festival takes place at the Kim Collins Stadium in Bird Rock from Thursday, 23 to Saturday 25, June.
