The stage is set for the hosting of the sixth World Creole Music Festival in Dominica from November 1 - 3, 2002. Thousands of visitors from the world over are expected to converge on Dominica to witness the most spectacular and thrilling Creole event anywhere in the world.

Built around the rich cultural traditions of Dominica, this year's festival promises to surpass the hugely successful events of previous years. For this year's event, there will be a line-up of the very best talent in Creole music from across the globe.

Expected to perform on Friday are WCK, Michelle Henderson, Look Us Sweet Mickey, Typical Combo and Glen Washington. On Saturday, First Serenade, Square One, Carimi, Tripple Kay, 3KdJol and Gordon Henderson. Finally on Sunday, Impromtu, Midnight Grovers, Top Vice, Skah Skah #1 Plus, Ophelia, and Grammacks New Generation.

Since the staging of the first World Creole Music Festival six years ago, the event has attracted thousands of music lovers and has proven to be one of the biggest events in the Caribbean, and has firmly established Dominica as the Creole music capital of the world.

On the eve of this year's event, hundreds of Dominicans from the Diaspora are expected to link with resident Dominicans in the second Diaspora Symposium at the Government Financial Center from October 25 to November 1.

The event, which is particularly scheduled to serve as a lead up to the Creole Festival will focus attention on the role that like-minded Dominicans can play in bringing its tremendous human resource to bear on Dominica's development efforts.

Following the Creole festival, Dominicans will celebrate their twenty-fourth year as an independent Nation.
