Celebrations in various forms are a key feature of summer break in Jamaica and worldwide after exams are over for college and university students.

In Jamaica, in particular, the main universities mark the end of their exam period with their final fetes. This year, The Formula Events and Skyy Vodka introduce what is dubbed, The Ultimate College Weekend.

"After the hectic exam period we will be providing college students with the most fun and affordable way to start their summer holidays," said Ibrahim Konteh, spokesperson for The Formula Events. "Our events have always been synonymous with high-energy entertainment, and with the world's best premium Vodka the weekend will be epic," continued Konteh.

Hang-O-Ver will start off the weekend on Friday, May 18 at May Fair in Red Hills and on Saturday, May 19, Infinity - The Drink - Somnia TNS Edition will be held at Club Privilege.

Top selectors

"We are going all out for both events, as we have booked some of the top selectors in Jamaica such as ZJ Chrome and Chromatic, so you know the vibe will be crazy," said Creamz Barrett, a member of The Formula Events and Axys Group.

"Both events are drinks inclusive and will also feature drink shots, wet t-shirt contests and other attractions," continued Barrett.

Hang-O-Ver will be held on the lush gardens of May Fair in Red Hills and will feature three drinks-inclusive bars, which will have a detox bar and a large soup tent.

"There will be a special premium bar for our usual high spenders," continued Barrett.

The group of promoters say they are happy to have Skyy Vodka on board and negotiations with other sponsors are currently being tied up.

"Infinity - 4 Ever Summer, stands out from other party series, as a four-party series that will be held May, June, July and August," said Konteh.

On May 19 Drink-Somnia TNS Edition starts the series with features such as shots on entry, exotic drinks inclusive, body bar and jello shots. "There will be complimentary Sangster's Rum Cream shots on entry for all ladies as our welcome bar," said Konteh.

"Our formula is simple, be passionately customer-centric in providing patrons with what they want, as party-goers ourselves, we research and assess the needs of party-goers and we provide it with zeal and pleasure," said Barrett.

"We are constantly thinking outside the proverbial box to find new ways to offer patrons a memorable experience each time they attend events by The Formula Events."

There is a special armband package planned for both events and student-friendly admission for each event. For more information on The Ultimate College Weekend, patrons can contact Creamz Barrett at 850-8326 or Gabby Miss JEM Curling at 533-5243.
