“We’re not just doing another typical steelpan concert, we’re re-creating history and delivering a truly memorable experience. This is intended to be a grand production unlike any other done by a steel band in this country. We’re using state of the art lighting, sound, multimedia screens and special effects to deliver an exhilarating show that we hope will become the new benchmark,” explained Renegades concert Chairman, Colin Greaves. 

Beyond Horizons will take patrons on a musical journey that spans 70 years, highlighting some of Renegades’ iconic performances.

We’re also offering a VIP All Inclusive section for $600, which caters to those who want hassle-free fun. We want people to come out and really celebrate with the BP Renegades family.
