Another great Cropover 101 for Newbies, and non Newbies alike written my Trple Fdesigns, check out their Facebook page HERE for more information on Cropover as well as to place orders for your fete tickets and costume accessories for Cropover:

You don't get crowded Port of Spain streets with this jump. Free open road and highway.
Ok, let's get the terms right-is not 'playing a mas'  it is 'jumping in a band.' You JUMP for Crop Over. No chipping, etc. Straight jumpups and wukups from Warrens all down to Spring Garden Highway.
Fantasy Barbados
Similar to: Yuma
First year=chance to make a bit of Crop Over history. You can say you were one of the first 500 people. PLUS they offer breakfast, and an after party till midnight. Nuff said! ***oh wait, in addition to that, their frontline costumes include an Island Fusion jouvert package - a $150 value!!

Siamese backline section
Power x Four
Similar to: Island People
Wildness and more wildness, vibes and more vibes. The band where you're most likely to learn how to 6:30**. Excellent service.
Brain Coral section
Blue Box Cart
Similar to: Harts
The second band to go on the road, so prepare for an early start, and also an early finish. Known for jumping in the sea with full costume on.
Blue Box Cart Full group
Baje International
Similar to: Tribe
Well if you know Tribe, you know what you're getting here: stush vibes and pretty people. Has the reputation for a bourgeoisie vibe. If that's your thing-play your mas (IF you can find a costume)!
Bliss section
Similar to: Legacy
An authentic Bajan experience in this band, also known for great service
Jump Promotions
Similar to: Ronnie and Caro
This fairly new band did very well, winning with their creative designs, they have a great presentation this year as well.
