Bacchanal is in the air again, moving forward under the theme “Future Shock” with “a vibrancy and speed unlike anything else ever seen before”. If the promotional verbiage is anything to go by, Bacchanal Future Shock promises to be “dazzling, bright, intense and potent…infusing itself with the colours, the passion, the rhythm and beats of this little island”. The launch of Bacchanal Jamaica at the Knutsford Court Hotel on February 10 captured elements of the verve of carnival, with the revolutionary theme highlighting its transition into a new home at Stadium North.
The new and more spacious Mas Camp is a replica of its Oxford Road predecessor with added features for even more comfort. These include increased secure parking, VIP entrance and bathroom facilities, as well as costume tents with displays. Bacchanal Jamaica will have Friday night fetes from February 24 and Socacise starting on February 27. Beach J’Ouvert will take place on April 7 and Bacchanal J’Ouvert on April 13.
