We have listened to your feedback and we’re giving you more space, a bigger stage and also upgraded the sound system. We don’t foresee anyone being disappointed this year.”

Clarke said the organisers wanted to give a special thank you to sponsors Honourable Melvin ‘Mitch’ Turnbull, BVI Tourist Board, Virgin Islands News Online, Native Son, Al’s Marine, Myett’s, and Da Basement.
