Trinidad and Tobago's first live music district will be launched next year.

Minister of Trade and Industry, Paula Gopee-Scoon, revealed the plans on Monday night at Music TT's National Stakeholder Engagement at Queen's Hall.

Minister Gopee-Scoon said the designated area for the live music district is Ariapita Avenue to the Queen's Park Savannah.

The Trade and Industry Minister said during consultation, stakeholders gave suggestions for solutions to the seasonal nature of local music, which currently circulates around the Carnival Season.

She said the pilot for T&T's first live music district will be launched in March 2018.

Minister Gopee-Scoon further revealed that partnerships have been created and site visits have been conducted to assess the quality of the spaces, acoustics, space capacity, and suitability among other requirements.

The Trade and Industry Minister said no amount of attention to detail will be spared for the proper execution of the event. The Ministry is working with the Port of Spain City Corporation, the Ministry of Community Development, Culture and the Arts, and the Ministry of Tourism in this venture.
