Action Entertainment would like to extend heartfelt gratitude to patrons for their overwhelming support of the first staging of 'First Fest Family Fun day Concert' on New Year's Day at Jamaica College, Kingston.

The event was advertised for 10am-10pm. The Deputy Superintendent of Police attached to the St. Andrew North Division ordered that the concert come to end at 10:30pm. Action Entertainment states unequivocally that it was not in breach of the Noise Abatement Act. The Act allows for events to go until midnight on week days and until 2am on the weekend. We would like to commend the members of the Police Force for carrying out their duties. However, given that one of the headline acts (Stitchie) was still to perform, we are of the view that some discretion could have been exercised and an additional 15-30 minutes granted in order to avoid the show ending prematurely.
We regret any inconvenience or disappointment this may have caused our patrons. Action Entertainment nonetheless reaffirms its commitment and support of the JCF in maintaining law and order. We hope that what was done will not set the tone and trend as it relates to the relationship between the Police and entertainment/event promoters for the new year.
