Members of the public can get their hands on tickets for the 2012 Vodafone Hibiscus Festival from the end of this month.
Signing a partnership with Damodar Brothers yesterday, Hibiscus Events Group Inc. (HEGI) chairman, Hirdesh Prasad, said since their partnership in 2006, they had never had any problems with ticketing over the years.
“Previous years they (Damodar Brothers) have been good marketers. All thess years we have had no problems with ticketing,” Mr Prasad said.
Damodar Brothers chief executive, Div Damodar, said they were privileged to look after ticketing for a big event like the Hibiscus Festival.
“It’s a long tradition that Hibiscus and Damodar Brothers and now with Damodar City also that we have since 2006. This is the biggest event that the country has seen and it’s the most managed most professional event in Fiji, all due to the Hibiscus team. We are proud and privileged to look after the ticketing,” Mr Damodar said.
“Hibiscus this year will be up another level and we are excited about it.”
Tickets prices begin from $5 for all public judging events at the Hibiscus tent and three dollars for shows on the main stage.
Executive secretary for HEGI, Aqela Cakobau said. “Tickets are very affordable! Those who want to buy tickets can just go to Village Six cinema and purchase it from there,”
“Since 2006 Damodar has been selling hibiscus tickets. If it wasn’t for them we would have had to find a place within the city to sell our tickets. Having them onboard makes it easier for us as the ticket outlet is centralised.”
The 2012 Hibiscus Festival will be staged at the Albert Park in Suva from August 17 to 25 with the theme: ‘Overcoming non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in Fiji.’
