NOW in its 25th year, Bacchanal Jamaica joins the Caribbean's soca celebration with Bacchanal Fridays at the New Mas Camp, Stadium North in St Andrew, on Friday.

The first in its series of new-and-improved fetes for the 2013 season.

The 2013 season, themed 'Le Masquerade', will re-engage soca junkies with this disco-styled fete to get revellers warmed up for this year's offerings.

Socaphiles new and old will be treated to a pulsating mix of the deejaying styles of Trinidad and Tobago's DJ Private Ryan and Jamaica's own DJ Sanjay.

"We at Bacchanal Jamaica encourage all soca fans young and young at heart to enjoy our parties. We also strongly believe in all our supporters having a good time and most importantly, drinking responsibly, as we ensure that our events remain safe and fun-filled events," said Renee Hartley, PR officer for Bacchanal Jamaica.

For the new season, fans can expect improvements to the venue including expanded VIP bathrooms and a paved, dust-free surface. Also, there are new entry requirements to ensure safe and responsible drinking at all fetes. At each party, patrons will be asked to show identification prior to entry.

Tickets are $1,200 presold and $1,500 at the gate. VIP $2,500 presold and $3,000 at the gate, food and drink inclusive.

Costumes for the April 7 Road March can be viewed and purchased at the Mas Camp or online at
