Tribe's Festival of the Bands now reduced to one day, new venue

This weekend's Festival of the Bands that was due to take place over two days on Saturday and Sunday, has been reduced to just one day - Saturday and the venue has been changed to the Jean Pierre Complex.

The announcement was made of Tribe Carnival's Facebook page, attributing the change to the weather.

"As you know the weather has been very bad recently thus preventing us from being able to move heavy equipment onto the Festival Grounds thereby severely affecting our setup time. In the best interest of our patrons we have decided to move the festival from the stadium field to Jean Pierre Complex - solid surface. #NoMud," the statement said

Tribe Carnival said that this move has impacted on a number of variables compelling them to change from a 2-day festival "to an explosive *ONE DAY* Festival n Saturday 21st July 6pm - 2am!"

The event will feature top soca star Machel Montano.

The launch features Tribe, Harts, Bliss, Pure, The Lost Tribe and Rogue.
