The long-cherished annual ‘Joy Bangla Concert’ is set to take place at the Bangladesh Army Stadium in city on Thursday afternoon with a view to rekindling the historic March 7 speech by Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

Under the supervision of Centre for Research and Information (CRI), Young Bangla, one of the leading youth networks of Bangladesh, hosts the mega event every year to revive Liberation War spirit among youths.

At the concert, leading musical bands perform one song each from the list of patriotic songs played from the Shadhin Bangla Betar Kendra during liberation war.

“The Young Bangla has been organising the concert every year since 2015. The celebration has now become more significant as the UNESCO has recognised the landmark speech of Bangabandhu as a world documentary heritage on October 30, 2017,” CRI Associate Coordinator Engineer Tonmoy Ahmed said on Wednesday (today).

He said leading bands Artcell, Chirkutt, Lalon, Arbovirus, Shunno, Nemesis, Cryptic Fate and Bay of Bengal will perform in the concert to mesmerise the fans with rock music, BSS reported.

The entry to the mega event at the Army Stadium is totally free this year and the spectators just need to complete registration, Ahmed added.

He said a large number of fans especially youths have already registered to join the concert this year which is going to be one of the best of its kind.

In the last three years, around 60,000 youths, altogether, enjoyed the concert at the venue while 90,000 watched on live-streaming on different social media sites and various organisations’ websites and millions viewed on prominent TV channels.

Hundreds of youths imbued with Liberation War spirit will gather at the stadium to recall the day and celebrate independence with the Bangla rock music.
