Before I forget...

All who are in the section Mystique I know the placement of your section! I saw the designer herself in Panorama and she told me Mystique is NUMBER SIX!!

So, according to the sccop Carnival Jumbie got we know the placement of Lady of the Lake (1), Black Magic (3), Mystique (6) and Silver Mist (7). Now, we just have to wait until Wednesday to find out the rest of the lineup!

Pan on the Greens

Though it took me a long time to warm up to he new idea of Panorama without the North Stand, seeing as I decided to miss it last year, I decided to give it a try this year. Well I did and it was an entirely different vibe. Something was missing, like mas on the road was not quite the same without a stage, there is just something to be said for having the North Stand.

What the event turned out to be was a picnic on the greens, not my style actually but I was quite appreciative for the covering on the grass that turned the area into a white floor as well as the sparse and scarce shade from the sun!



I saw many people with sun burnt legs, and many others braving the vicious sun to get a view of the stage. The late start to Panorama coupled with the fact that it was preliminary competition, not semi finals, meant by the time I left at just after 8:00PM, medium bands were still on stage! I missed out on hearing Exodus and Neal and Massy All Stars.



The best thing about Panorama was the Bmobile Lime (of which I was part of) since we were treated with food and drinks galore, and Red Ants Laventille Rhythm Section (who you can enjoy in the video below)



I would wish for a stand on the "Northern Greens" next year, as the stands built for VIPs across the area was not even filled. And if it is to be left as is, hopefully next year the organisers would have the foresight to provide shaded/tented areas as well as design the layout in a way that everyone can have a clear enough view of the stage and the bands performing. Without being able to see who was on the stage it felt as if the steel pan was just an accompaniment to the lime that was happening in the greens and I did not feel a part of the whole experience.
