TONIGHT'S Bacchanal Fridays fete is expected to be hot as the Frenchmen take control of Mas Camp with RISE. On stage will be the premier soca DJs — Smoke, Back to Basics and Tony X.

Smoke, a Mas Camp favourite and one of Jamaica's leading DJs, will be pulling it together for the fans.

“Although I didn't make it to Trinidad Carnival, I have one of the hottest soca remixes of 2018 guaranteed to keep the revellers moving. Really looking forward to working with Back2Basics and Tony X; we make a great team and will be keeping it tight for RISE,” he said.

Back2Basics, no strangers to the Mas Camp stage, comprises Trinidad and Tobago DJs now based in New York. Coming to Mas Camp directly from the Trinidad Carnival, the duo will bring some of the energy and flair from that event and will be working with the hype man Tony X.

Activities on stage will include modelling of stunning front line costumes from the Frenchmen section.

“On Friday (tonight) we will be offering a special 10 per cent discount for revellers who join the Frenchmen section by signing up at the Frenchmen Costume Lounge at Mas Camp,” said Frenchmen's Leisha Wong.

Ian Wong of Frenchmen said: “In true Frenchmen style, service, food and premium liquor will be on show. For those in the VIP section, the all-inclusive experience will feature food as well as drinks, and some specialty cocktails in partnership with Absolute and Pure Country juices. We will also be catering for our guests in the general section with whom complimentary specialty cocktails and shots will also be shared. We remind patrons in the general section to get their drink tickets as they enter for redemption at the bar!”

Bacchanal director Charmaine Franklin is extremely pleased with the start of the Bacchanal season for 2018 and expects things to get only better.

“We were happy with the response at our first Bacchanal Friday and we know that the Frenchmen are adept at pulling out the partygoers, so we expect a really heavy turnout for RISE,” she said.
