Artists for Road Safety was held on the 27th of April 2007 at the Artificial Beach Rostrum. A total of 9 bands and 3 DJs performed in the event. Business Image Group coordinated the event. It was a joint effort by the UN and the Government of Maldives.
During the preparation or setting up phase, there were many delays, which could have been possibly avoided. Electrical problems and bad weather cost us most of the setting up time. The moment the power amplifiers were given some load, the electricity went off. This happened a couple of times and cost us a power amp.
Sound wise, the audience area was very wide but shallow. All the bands played on the same setup, which was real blessing given the delays. If not the sound would have been unmanageable. Of course they had their own individual instruments.
The main event went smoothly except for certain shuffles in the program. The crowd turn-out was good. The 70’s Poster Band played a touching tribute to Tabey who lost his life in a road accident.
