I have been nursing my injuries all day I forgot about this!!
So going into this I was honestly wondering if Bacchanal still had it, but gladly my doubts were thrown out thanks to another amazing staging of one of the best events on our calendar!!
The set up, liquor and free gifts? yes they were all at the usual standard, so no complaints there. A special shout out to the new Iced Cake and Marshmallow vodkas!! (even though they took forever to show up). There was a water slide, dunk tank and a monkey bar which appeared to be fun.
On to the important stuff :
We were welcomed by DJ J.Lee who played all the standard 2014 tunes as we expected, DJ Smoke also gave a pretty good set, not too many repeats neither overplayed songs, Bambino lent his voice throughout the day and didn’t bother me as much as I expected, he actually provided some decent crowd participation (I know some of you may disagree), usually this is where I would give the highest praise to DJ Richie RAS but while his set was quite entertaining, it was not the one to write home about. DJ Nuphoric, a hype DJ duo from Trinidad totally blindsided me with their set it was the perfect mix of New, Old Classic, Power, Groovy, everything!! I’ll definitely be looking out for this name on flyers for years to come.
Now for the Main Event : Bunji and Fayann took the stage like none other!, the Vikings did not disappoint, with that perfect mix of vocal performance, energy, song selection and not to mention a quick pop in by Farmer Nappy this was a performance well worth its hype. The highlight of the night was us in the front being instructed to take down the barrier and move up to the stage!
The night was nothing short of being Epic!
