Fresh off the heels of a blazing trial route march last Sunday, Wray and Nephew Jamaica Carnival will be taking over the RKA Car Park in New Kingston with 'Soca In Da City' this Saturday. Soca royalty Alison Hinds is expected to perform alongside high-energy sets from DJs Kurt Riley, Supa Hype, Billy and DLife.

Hinds promises nothing but a phenomenal, pulsating act in her usual style.

"I just want everyone to come out in their numbers ready to fÍte. Ladies, dress comfortable; no 'stush' settings, bring your vibe and have a fantastic time with your crew," Hinds said.

The revelry kicks off at 8 p.m. and the admission fee is $1,500 at the gate, but entrance with a college ID or a 'Q' of Wray and Nephew is only $500.

Julianne Lee, managing director at Jamaica Carnival, says that they are being as inclusive as possible, trying to keep it affordable so everyone can partake.

"Soca In Da City is the first in the series of events for Byron Lee's Jamaica Carnival and I'm very excited to watch it all unfold. We will be making a statement and setting the momentum for the dynamic grand finale of Jamaica Carnival with this event," Lee said.
