This year’s Joy Bangla Concert will be staged at the Bangladesh Army Stadium in Dhaka’s Kurmitola on Saturday, in a plan to honor the epochal March 7 speech of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

Unlike the preceding five concerts, the forthcoming concert will be organized with much fanfare and enthusiasm as it falls on Mujib Year marking the birth centenary of the father of the nation. 

Bangabandhu’s 100th birth anniversary is on March 17. On this auspicious occasion, Bangladesh will be celebrating Mujib Borsho from March 17 to March 26, 2021.

As many as 16 musical bands, including five from different universities, will participate in the show. 

Apart from the university bands, other popular bands like Vikings, Lalon, Cryptic Fate, Arbovirus, Chirkutt, Nemesis, F-Minor, Shunno, Fuad & Friends, and Avoid Rafa, are expected to perform and be broadcast on the country's airwaves.

As they did in previous Joy Bangla concerts, the bands will perform songs of Swadhin Bangla Betar Kendra as well as other popular songs.

Young Bangla, the youth front of the Awami League’s research wing Centre for Research and Information (CRI), is organizing the sixth  Joy Bangla Concert in Dhaka on March 7.

It also comes 10 days before Bangabandhu’s birth anniversary this centenary year.

The concert will also feature graphical representations on Bangabandhu's historic 7th March speech of 1971, which was later recognized by UNESCO as part of the world’s documentary heritage.

Free online registration for the Joy Bangla Concert began at 12noon on Tuesday. 

Visitors can complete the registration process for the concert by providing their National Identity Card number, passport number, or birth certificate information, along with their contact number and email address.

Except for 1,000 VVIPs, tens of thousands of music lovers are expected  to enjoy the concert. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will be in the audience. 

Dhaka Tribune is a media partner of the concert which will be aired on TV from 1pm to 10pm. 

No tickets, no entry

In order to organize the event successfully, Centre for Research and Information on Tuesday held a coordination meeting with the representatives of the agencies concerned, sponsors, and media partners, at its Dhanmondi-32 office. 

Speaking at the event, CRI Trustee Nasrul Hamid Bipu said no political identity will be considered in allowing access to the concert venue, in an effort to make the concert free from any unwanted situations.

People without tickets will not be allowed admission, he said.
