S-IMG_2257.jpg
The Bahamas National Festival Commission (BNFC) remains committed to its mandate to create events that will stimulate sustainable cultural industries and promote all things Bahamian.

Over the past year, the BNFC has invested over half a million dollars directly in Bahamian musicians, for performance fees at promotional events and activities to support the Junkanoo Carnival Song Competition and the Music Masters Concert. While there has been much interest in the guest performers at Music Masters, the Commission is clear that the primary objective of the event is to promote the Top 10 finalists in the Junkanoo Carnival Song Competition and to give these Bahamian artists, many of whom are undiscovered, local and international exposure.
