Belize City Belize, March 27th, 2023: On Friday March 24, 2023 the Alejo Beni Park in Dangriga was transformed into a concert village for the launch of the Belize International Music and Food Festival (BIMFF) 2.0 Pre Festival Tour.  The event, held in partnership with the Dangriga Town Council, marked the first in a series of free events designed to scout and place Belize’s top talents as part of the lineup for the upcoming BIMFF 2.0 which takes place on July 29th and 30th at the Marion Jones Sports Complex in Belize City. 

Over twenty (20) local performers and food vendors turned up in Dangriga for a display of talent which ended with winners being selected from the artist/ entertainer, disc jockey and food categories. Attendees were treated to displays from the likes of the Urawani C Dance Group, Adrian “Doc” Martinez, Top Flight, Papa John & YG and food from Dangriga’s “kulcha” base such as Cims Enterprise, Ma –K’s Diner, S & J’s Kitchen and Stone Kraab Grill. The crowd was also treated to an energetic performance by Dangriga’s very own Sweet Pain Band.

The crowd was entertained by MC William Neal throughout the night and at the end of judging, three persons were awarded winners and went home with cash prizes, automatic placement as participants for BIMFF 2.0 in July, as well as recording studio time courtesy of The Reef Recording Studio in Belize City.
