The 2012 Procera Music Festival kick started today at Nausori’s Syria Park.
Procera Music’s general manager, Mahid Murad told FijiLive that the week-long festival will be celebrated via music and live performances by local artists alongside campaigns regarding piracy.
“This year the festival will be more about advocating and educating members of the community about piracy which has been increasing in the past couple of years,” Murad said.
He also added that the public should appreciate the artists work and give them an opportunity to grow rather than copying their (artists) work and selling them for money which the public does not deserve.
“It is important that we sell originals because it is somebody’s hard-work we are dealing with and not use it for your own benefit,” Murad added.
Murad is also urging youths to come to Syria Park to also learn ways to combat and stop piracy inFiji.
