Fete Insider: Bacchanal Blocko

General and Commander-in-Chief Jules Sobion tells us more about Bacchanal Blocko, an LED drinks-inclusive party, which he describes as the pre-pump to jouvert. 

Caesar's Army has had a stellar track record for hosting some of the most memorable experiences; with Machel Montano and Ultimate Rejects already carded to perform, we have little doubt that Blocko will be any different.

Caesar's Army hosted what they deemed to be their 'pre-pump to the road' at the National Stadium, a replica of al the action and vibes one would find on the road Carnival Monday and Tuesday. Donning their Monday wear and costumes from previous years patrons chipped, wined back and bruk out behind either a drinks or music truck, making their way to the 'stage', sponsored by Heineken, replete with security as people waited to cross.

Smaller Greens for Panorama

Richard Forteau, Secretary of Pan Trinbago, told Loop the Greens will return but it will be back to its original size.

VIDEO: Bacchanal Road cements itself as the official pre-pump to Carnival

That's a word most people could use to describe the atmosphere and energy at Bacchanal Road. Held at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Caesar's Army offered patrons an 'alternative to pan', an option offered in the midst of growing concerns and complaints about pan on the Greens as well as several party brands pulling out of the Greens altogether. As with all new concepts, many speculated how Bacchanal Road would be received in clear competition with pan semis but it was an unwarranted concern. 

Caesar's Army offers a new alternative to Pan on the greens

Attendance at the annual event has been common practice for the event production company, for over 10 years. But this year, amidst improvements announced by Pan Trinbago, the Army has decided to break the mold as it hosts its newest alternative event concept, aptly titled ‘Bacchanal Road’.

Destra to honour Queens at her Carnival concert

In a press conference today to discuss the event, the self-proclaimed Queen of Bacchanal said the concert will feature Denise Belfon, Nadia Batson, Allison Hinds, Drupatee Ramgoonai and Tanya Stephens of Jamaica. She said a new song with herself and Stephens will be released at the show.

"It's about all my friends who I consider to be queens," she said, noting that the industry is dominated by males.

Garcia, who opted out of the International Soca Monarch competition, said she wants to give  fans the versatility of her brand by staging a show.
