Music fans turned up in numbers to the much awaited Thurston Food and Music Festival in Suva yesterday.

Ana Rokoika, 62 of Rakiraki now residing in Suva came to enjoy her favourite artists as they performed for their fans at the festival in Suva.

Ms Rokoika said she enjoyed every bit of the festival and would love to come back if the event was hosted annually by Knox Entertainment Limited.

“This is the first time I came out to enjoy live music and I just love being here right now,” she said.

“It is a good way to relax and enjoy ourselves while having great food and music. “I am a retired civil servant and I always stay home, but today I took the opportunity to come out and have fun with my friends and relax.

“Having to witness Laisa Vulakoro is amazing because she is my favourite artist and it’s my first time seeing her in person performing live instead of on TV or social media,” Ms Rokoika said.

Susana Masivou, 22 of Vatuwaqa said: “I am extremely happy about the festival and I love it here as I get to spend time with my family and children.

“My children are also enjoying the snacks and music as they dance away.”
