ALL roads lead to Morgan's Harbour in Port Royal today when Bacchanal Jamaica presents its 'Soc'in Wet Fete, a new and exciting twist on the soca scene.

'Wet Fete' kicks off at 1:00 pm and goes 'till 8:00 pm.

“This fete is loads of fun. It's a cooler fete in a beach setting. The water, the sun, the sand and music all combine to produce a relaxed, uninhibited ambience guaranteed to keep the vibes high from start to finish. And, to create just the excitement we want, there's a team of DJs experienced at selecting the top musical mixes to keep the revellers jumping. The wet fete is simply the ultimate party experience,” said a Bacchanal Jamaica director Michael Ammar Jr.

On stage will be familiar DJs including Chromatic and Coppershot plus DJ Tyler and King Taj, who together will be presenting a mix of new soca hits, the all-time favourites, a touch of EDM and dancehall, combined to ensure the enjoyment of Bacchanal fans.

Chromatic is one of the most well-known sound systems on Jamaica's party scene. It is also in demand in the United Kingdom, Miami, Belize and sections of the Caribbean. The selectors are versatile, with in-depth knowledge of a variety of genres, and their mixed tapes feature the most popular hip hop and dancehall artistes. They pride themselves in being able to please any audience.

Coppershot selectors always deliver; they have consistently been at the top of their game for over 20 years and are known for their ability to deliver the right flavour for every crowd. They have a strong following of music lovers in Jamaica.

DJ Tyler, a new sensation will also display his skills at the turntable. His range spans the musical genres from the 90s to EDM and soca. He was a hit as a member of the Third Dimension DJ at the Major Lazer concert in December 2016. DJ Tyler has managed to bridge the gap between teenagers and more mature soca fans.

Meanwhile DJ King Taj has been on the scene for several years, and well known for his masterful mixes at the Frenchmen parties, among others. Taj is also accomplished in several musical genres and will be sure to please.

“The wet fete is one of the ways in which we plan to vary our calendar of events this year,” said Charmaine Franklin, a Bacchanal director.

“While the Mas Camp remains the Bacchanal headquarters, we will be taking a couple of our fetes to different venues to keep the party experience fresh and new,” she added.
