Girl Power 2012 Review

I had an amazing time at Girl Power in 2011, we partied hard until the sun came up so it was a definite must this year.

Total disappointment from the time I entered the VIP section. I realized there were about twice as many people than last year in VIP and the VIP section was probably twice as big as general. It was crowded and dark, the bright energetic decor from last year was non-existent.

The food lines were ridiculously long and the food was mediocre. The only thing that looked really appetizing was the bake and shark that I would never get to taste because that line was 3 times longer than the others. The food vendors were taking their slow sweet time serving the food which contributed to the long lines.

Finally the show starts and Kes, Bunji, Fayanne, and Destra all gave great performances.... then abruptly at 5am during Destra's performance the show just ended. No one knew what was going on and no announcement was made. We didn't know if the show was over or if we should wait because Machel was performing next. After about 15 minutes it was safe to assume that the show was over and peeople flocked to the food lines. .

What a disrespectful slap in the face from IslandPeople, no explanation or anything??? At this time people from general, stormed over to the VIP section to get food and it was just one big mess.

Never me again... extremely disappointed with IslandPeople.

Totally correct on all accounts, there were ten of us and vowed never to come back because of how they ended this party and total disorganization...something was seriouly wrong with IP this year on all aspects, costumes and fetes...

hmmm well i heard that there was some vagina flashing on stage and the police stop the fete. I was however privy to information that the police was going to stop the fete anyway before Machel performed or was done performing. Apparently they ran out of time while the double crown winner celebrated on de pickup complete with motorcade...and btw ultr premium my ass had better food and drinks in cheaper fetes this season. time ip stop robbing people with finger food and stop calling that shit ultra

This was the WORST party! They owe us all a refund! After paying that price and being told Premium drinks only for the VIP section! I fully agree with your comments. I too wondered if it was a foam party! These people better take a class in 101 Event Management!

The problem with Girl Power was an injunction filed late in the day that changed the start and end times for the fete. It had to end at 5 AM which is why the police appeared on stage. I agree that Island People should have made some sort of announcement though -- if you noticed, they were still setting up at 11 PM, because they had to build some additional fencing as a noise barrier. Whatever it was... at least the drinks were free. I was disappointed though since just as Destra started to get into hre performance... WHAM! Fete done.
