With just six more weeks until the Lakeshore is lit up by a kaleidoscope of colour, feathers and sequins it’s definitely time for you to finalize your plans for one of summers hottest weekends!
Some of the best events and concerts are held the evening of the grand parade, and this year is no exception. On August 2, it’s The Main Event: HD Edition at the International Centre. This year’s event will have the first family of soca Bunji Garlin and Fayann Lyons alongside the Viking Family, reigning Groovy Soca Monarch Kerwin Du Bois, Patrice Roberts, Farmer Nappy and much more.
The Main Event will also have a secret headliner that will be announced exclusively on July 12. Past years have seen fabulous performances by major artistes including Destra Garcia and Machel Montano. The venue will be great, offering free parking, over twenty bars (no waiting for drinks!) and over 100,000 square feet to palance and get on bad!
Tickets are on sale NOW, so don’t stick! To get you ready, here are a few songs that will get you hype for one of summer’s hottest soca concerts!
