The biggest gospel musical concert in the world â€˜The Experienceâ€™, an Interdenominational gospel concert that features some of the best known musical talents in the world is around the corner and everybody is already catching the frenzy. The date for this yearâ€™s event is December 4th, 2009.
This year, the organizers are expecting nothing less than 400,000 guests and preparations are in high gear to accommodate them.
The Experience has now become known as the largest musical concert in the world.
This yearâ€™s event will feature international acts like Phil Driscoll, Yolanda Adams, Fred Hammond, Don Moen, Kirk Franklin, Donnie McClurkin, Bebe Winans and Cece Winans while the likes of Lara George, Mike Aremu, Timi Dakolo and Nikki Laoye, Evangelist Ebenezer Obey and Rooftop MCs will represent Nigerian artistes.
As usual, the venue for this yearâ€™s concert is the Tafawa Balewa Square (TBS), Lagos . The TBS was designed to provide hire facilities for a number of gatherings. It has two pavilions on 4 floors enclosing an open arena of 36,000 squares meters.
This location has hosted major functions like Independence Day celebrations.
On security concerns, the organizers have placed the security and comfort of the concert audience as its highest priority and are grateful to note that they have maintained an incident-free event. A very large contingent of security officials will be deployed within and around the concert venue, at all designated car parks, and along the route to the venue to ensure the safety of lives and properties.
There will also be armed security patrol and easily identifiable security posts around the venue, parking areas and access roots. There will also be security flood lights to illuminate all designated parking lots, concert routes, adjoining streets and of course at the venue.
And in order to accommodate the very many music fans and guests, there will be clean, easily accessible mobile lavatories strategically located at the concert venue.
Food and drinks will also be available for purchase at concession stands at designated points in the venue and all through the event. The concert will definitely provide its audience a safe alternative for family recreation and world class entertainment.
The event is convened by Pastor Paul Adefarasin of House on The Rock.
