Calling all soca fans - win two tickets to Buss Head!

DOUBLE HELPINGS: Soca stars Machel Montano (left) and Bunji Garlin

CARNIVAL SEASON has finally arrived here in the UK and things are about to heat-up despite the unpredictable British climate, as soca extravaganza, the Buss Head tour, arrives in London.

Buss Head, (led by Machel Montano and Bunji Garlin) the build-up to Europe’s largest cultural street celebration, Notting Hill Carnival, continues to get bigger and better year after year.

Just before we become entranced by the sounds of the steel pan at Panorama, or get covered with paint. powder, chocolate and/or oil at J’ouvet, or become mesmerised by the array of colourful costumes adorned by children and adults on the streets of Notting Hill, many revellers are building-up their stamina by attending a number of events - pre-fetes, also known as pre-parties and concerts.

The Buss Head tour launched earlier this month and was well-received in Toronto during Caribana and Barbados during Crop Over Festival and is bound to set the pace for the UK ahead of Notting Hill.

Hailing from Trinidad, home of one of the world’s largest carnivals, Montano and Garlin, two of the biggest soca artists in the world, will appear together; making history at the iconic Troxy in Limehouse this Friday, August 25.

Montano, who has won International Soca Monarch five times over the past seven years and Garlin who has held the title four times, both know exactly how to bring the energy to audiences eagerly awaiting to ‘jump up on di road’.

On stage alongside Montano and Garlin will be Ultimate Rejects, the Trinidad & Tobago Carnival Road March winners for 2017. And if that wasn’t enough, Mr Killa, from Grenada, who knows how to ‘spice’ things up, will also be bringing the vibes at this highly-anticipated concert.

Expect to dance, sing and sweat as Garlin makes sure you Whine Up Your Body (2017), whilst Montano monitors the speed of your Fast Wine’ (2017), Mr Killa commands you to shake every part of your body including your Bam Bam (2016) and Ultimate Rejects take things to the Full Extreme!
