Carnival 2012 Updates

Now that Redbull Flugtag is over I am hoping that we can finally start getting news from TRIBE concerning the band launch and theme 2012 since their company, Ultimate Events, was responsible for managing the Redbull Flugtag in Trinidad. Word is that Bliss may have it's own launch independent of TRIBE, which means if this happens it will be a smaller more private launch which may or may not be a good thing if you were waiting on costumes to decide which band to play with. I personally think it is a good thing for those who played in Bliss and prefer the numbers to remain the same, TRIBE loyalist can register with TRIBE and the happy people in Bliss can enjoy the smaller band without an influx of people jumping ship! My sources also said that costume screening took place a week or so ago and we should keep an eye out for TWO white costumes that were a hit; not feeling white again for Carnival 2012, hopefully there are lots of other costumes to choose from with colour.

So, I am hearing that new band Fantasy has changed their "committee only registration" policy and the band is now open to all. Interesting, because as a new band I was really quite concerned who they would attract if they depended on committee only seeing as so many of their committee members overlap with other committees. I cannot wait to see their costumes, wings and more wings, we should get more news and a launch date from this band soon.

Speaking of a launch date looks like Island People is carded for August 7 from all reports, I guess they took the only available weekend that month to launch right after TRIBE and before YUMA, good move just need to confirm the date.

Pulse 8 has revealed their theme 2012, it is "The Frontier" as in the wild wild west, costumes should be very interesting! 

And finally my FIRST band launch of the season takes place on Saturday with Spice. I am super excited to see the "New World" costumes, finally feeling like Carnival is in the air!

makes sense for bliss to be separate and closed, the amount of people, including myself looking to play with them next year! As far as I can gather, their small size played a large part in their succes, so they would not want to change that...


Not feeling the Sunday but I guess it doesn't matter since I'll be watching the entire launch from my computer screen anyway.

*sending not so subtle hints to you and Triniscene lol
