Last lap for Cropover 2018

Last lap for Cropover 2018
02 Aug

After a four year break, the Foreday Morning Jam and Pic o de Crop finals will be held on the same night.

Back in 2014, the events were separated after bad weather forced the finals to be postponed until the following Saturday.

But some bandleaders do not mind the switch and are fully supportive of the decision.

Meanwhile it's the last lap for Cropover 2018 and several service providers are gearing up for a late surge in business.

Many, including barbers and makeup artists are seeing several bookings, and are expecting the rest of the season to be profitable.

The much-anticipated Rise Soca Kingdom show featuring headliner Machel Montano attracted thousands of Barbadians to the historic Kensington Oval Tuesday night.

And if the sentiments of the crowd were anything to go by, the show, which also featured local stars Red Plastic Bag, Peter Ram, Nikita, Hypa Sounds, Mikey and Lil' Rick, has generated additional momentum heading in to the last lap of the 2018 Cropover festival.

Speaking during an interview at the end of the show, Machel Montano talked about the significance of the Soca Kingdom concept, explaining it is about continuity in the artform and truly embracing both the old and the new.
