Dahlia Harris, principal director in the Ministry of Youth and Culture, noted the challenges in ensuring a fair distribution of the tickets,
"When you open to the public there are a lot of variables and so the best that we can do is to put them out on a first-come, first served basis," she said, adding that the 25,000 capacity National Stadium cannot accommodate everyone, including special guests.
However, she said a larger number of tickets for the gala has been allocated to the general public, to ensure that as many people as possible are able to see the show.
Harris said the Grand Gala will be a very entertaining show and will celebrate Jamaica's global impact, through the cultural and creative industries. She said all the performers on the show are part of a larger script, and the songs to be performed "will be a part of the story that we want to tell."
"The songs for the most part have already been pre-selected and a lot of the performances that they (participants) will do, will be accompanied by dance and movement," she noted.
She said the Grand Gala will feature the top three winners of The Big Stage, the Jamaica Festival Song and the Gospel Song Competitions.

Chairperson of the National Workers' Week Labour Day Core Committee, Dahlia Harris, emphasized this point while speaking at a Jamaica Information Service 'Think Tank' on May 15, at the agency's head office in Kingston.
Harris, who is also the principal director of culture in the Ministry of Youth and Culture, said it is important to notify the NWA in order to prevent the establishment of crossings at locations deemed unsafe and unauthorised.
"Some people in communities may feel that the primary school or the high school really needs a pedestrian crossing, and then they take that on by themselves without considering other things," she said.
Harris noted that there are legal requirements and specifications to be followed when establishing pedestrian crossings.
Harris said the police should also be notified with regards to any activity that involves working on the road and likely to affect the free flow of traffic.
"We have to let the police know, so they can help you and make it safe for you. We do not want people in the middle of the road putting cones where they shouldn't and then things happen on Labour Day," she said.
Meanwhile, Harris is encouraging citizens to register their projects by calling 978-7654, extension 5135, at the National Labour Day Secretariat or by email:

DAHLIA Harris, principal director of culture and chair of the National Labour Day Committee, said she is satisfied with the level of participation and engagement of the Jamaican people, given the large number of projects registered for Labour Day today.
"The Labour Day Secretariat is quite pleased with the number of projects that have been registered so far. We are, however, still encouraging individuals, service clubs, schools, and other organisations that have not yet registered their projects to still do so," Harris said.
The types of projects, she said, include planting of trees, construction, erecting of fences, renovations, painting of pedestrian crossings, and raking and bushing. She also added that so far she has seen projects from all 14 parishes across the island. This, she said, speaks volumes to the emphasis Jamaicans place on improving lives and creating a better environment for their fellow citizens to live in.
