Email: fanaht@gmail.com

For the first-timers and even so-called veterans, a handy guide so you know where to go, what to do, what to wear(??), and how to party in our little island paradise. It begins!

Dates and times according to info available at press time :-)

Thursday 28th July

Frazzled by Bash Brothaz Bim Mug Madness
Advanced tickets include mugs and other goodies. What to compare to hmmm...the atmosphere=zero stushness, crowd=hardcore limers, vibes=cooler fete-ish...shall we say a Bajan version of any good cooler fete – Blue Range maybe. First it was on a tennis court. Then it was at Cricket Legends. This year...never mind where it is, just BE THERE. Be there or be sober - TrpleF approved!
Dress: casual

Friday 30th July onwards:

Daytime:

Bridgetown Market-Price: free free free
Soak up the atmosphere on Spring Garden before it gets inundated with sweaty bodies on Monday, stalls abound where you can experience an authentic Bajan day out. Check out the Brewsters Road Crew stall while you’re there.

The Bathsheba Experience
4:00 PM - 11:00 PM
The Ultimate Cropover All Inclusive
Dress: it’s an all inclusive, and not one where you stand up and pose either

Casa Blanca
A POSEIDON PRODUCTIONS ADVENTURE COOLER PARTY-FREE POSEIDON SHOTS
6pm - midnight
Farley Hill
Dress: hmmmm let’s leave it up to you

Saturday 30th July

**Foreday Morning Jam**
Saturday night intoSunday morning approx12am to 10am
Dress: formal(it’s jouvert! What do you think!)

Some foreday/jouvert options include:

Baje Jouvert
If you like your jouvert not on the road. Baje is known for having a bar as long as 50ft-this fete is drinks inclusive of course


Mojito by Allure Ent
Includes private party 10pm Friday to 6am Saturday. Anything that includes a pre-party too is a-ok in my books-2 for the price of 1!

Collision Jouvert
For the locals, this band includes a month's membership with Surfside Gym...not bad if you ask me. So if you decide you're not going back to Trinidad after Crop Over, at least you've got a gym membership!
Casear’s Army Jouvert
It's the first time I'm hearing that they're in Barbados-could be wrong but Casear's Army...nuff said.

Colorz Entertainment Jouvert
Theme: pitch black includes FREE PRE JUMP UP PARTY Again, you can't go wrong with that.

PIRATES OF THE JOUVERT STREETS with DMD ENTERTAINMENT
'BATTLE AGAINST MR.HARDING' (aka the Redjet of Jouvert bands) only $90!!
Any DMD party is bound to be bashy – if you don’t understand the meaning of bashy, attend this and find out

Island Fusion Jouvert (Safari)
Is sold out but will advise if availability occurs. I can’t even say there’s a Trini equivalent of this...but think Red Ants Jouvert

Wadadah Morning Brek Out
The jouvert party. Water, foam, paint and mud zones
This is the party you go to after jouvert-that's right! No sleep! Another TrpleF favourite. Haven't had confirmation this year of date and time, but will let you know.

Bliss
The all-inclusive to end them all.
Think Beach House, Soka in Moka, etc.
Dress: buy a new outfit. Trust me. The girls don’t play at this one. Guys: try and shave at least.

10-10
10:00pm Saturday to 10:00 a.m Sunday
Think Soca Monarch combined with just about any open air fete like Insomnia. You're guaranteed to find the hottest acts, international, regional, local, just bring some stamina.
Dress: VIP is available, and probably advised if you don't like standing for 12 hours, but enjoy yourself in some flats and casuals in the General - you'll have just as much fun.

Sunday 31 July

Booze Cruise
That is all. .........................

Limerz Cruise
10am-4pm
Fully inclusive, catamarans instead of the regular boat-this is not your Treasure Queen boat, think MUCH more luxury. Limerz is also a TrpleF fav. Good time all around.


Island Mas breakfast party
07:30am - 02:30pm
George Washington House
Still the only real 'breakfast party' and a great setting, usually at the Barbados museum but this year it'll be at a new equally beautiful venue - Live performances and a great cause being supported in Ms. Barbados World's HIV assistance program.

Cohobblopot
8pm
Also similar to Soca Monarch, creme de la creme of artistes perform, just don't stay till morning if you're jumping the next day (and FYI 'jumping' is the Bajan equivalent of 'playing mas'-always good to get your vocabulary straight :)

Monday 1st August

Grand Kadooment
Spring Garden Highway

If you have any last minute vibes and feel like joining a band, contact me.
