Tribe launch is now one day at Jean Pierre Complex
Tribe's two-day band launch will now be held on one day at Jean Pierre Complex
The event billed as the Festival of the Bands was moved from Hasely Crawford Stadium to the Complex due to the inclement weather.
" As you know the weather has been very bad recently thus preventing us from being able to move heavy equipment onto the Festival Grounds thereby severely affecting our setup time. In the best interest of our patrons, we have decided to move the festival from the stadium field to Jean Pierre Complex - solid surface. #NoMud ," Tribe said in an announcement to its masqueraders.
The Tribe management said the move to the Complex has impacted on a number of variables compelling them to change from a two-day festival to a one day festival on Saturday, July 21 from 6pm to 2am.
The one-day event will see the launch of six bands: Tribe, Harts, Bliss, Pure, The Lost Tribe and Rogue.
Machel Montano will perform in his first appearance at a Tribe launch.
The band assures that all goodies and giveaways planned for the original event will still be available.
All one-day tickets are still valid and festival passes can be exchanged at Tribe Mas Camp or at the Guest Relations Station at the venue (5 pm - 10 pm) on Saturday, July 21.
