Artists join NLD for fundraiser

A music festival organised by the National League for Democracy will be held at People’s Park this week to raise money for the party’s education activities.

Daw Aung San Suu Kyi will open the two-day festival at 1pm on Thursday, December 27, the party’s education network said at a press conference last week.

The fundraising fair will feature hundreds of shops, including bookstores and food outlets run by private companies, NGOs and charities and tickets are available for K7500 a day.

The music will begin at 5pm on Thursday, December 27 and five bands will performed with 43 famous singers. Another 36 singers will perform the following night.

Tickets can be bought at the NLD head office on Shwegonedaing Road, other outlets and at the gate.

Sky Net will broadcast the concert live over two nights.

“The education network helps poor students with free education, accommodation and food with the support of public. At the moment, Myanmar’s education system has fallen behind and to improve the quality of education we need the public to show their support,” party patron U Tin Oo said.

Meanwhile, a number of private companies announced they would donate money to the education network. Media organisations Sky Net and Shwe FM donated K130 million, Air Bagan and Asia Green Development Bank donated K70 million and Myanmar Distribution Group K10 million.
