Island Tribe Carnival Band officially announced its participation in the 2022 Saint Lucia Carnival today, promising revelers absolute bliss and bacchanalia after two years of pandemic hibernation.
The Carnival of Saint Lucia takes place from July 7 to 20, 2022 with the marching bands parade scheduled for July 18 and 19, 2022.
Island Tribe will provide masquerades with a unique Caribbean experience through its portrayal of “Revenge 2.0”, inspired by the carnival god who ruled his kingdom of festivals for centuries. The depiction depicts what happens when the prisoners of the Festival Kingdom resurface to take over after being locked up for over two years.
“We will have our revenge for what we have endured for the past few years as our tribe will hit the road again with the goal of pure happiness for two days in paradise,” said group leader Mr Jason Hullingseed.
The group will consist of four sections, namely Opulence, Bacchanalia, Kings Reward and Jewel of Jade with the most competitive prices available for the season.
Mr Hullingseed added: “The people, their thirst for pageantry and bacchanalia from the heart-pounding beats of soca music, are what define us and unite us. Island Tribe is determined and focused on bringing back the importance of culture and the true love of carnival.
Island Tribe is also preparing to host its only carnival event – Bakkanal Beach this Sunday, May 29, 2022, and every Sunday culminating on June 26, 2022. The free event, scheduled at Vigie Beach in Castries from 2 p.m. to midnight will feature performances by top local artists, a costume display, and an opportunity for potential revelers to register.
Island Tribe welcomed the announcement by the government of Saint Lucia that the parade of groups will return to its original route from Massy Mega and around the city circuit and supports the decision to open Carnival 2022 to unvaccinated revelers .
The group shares the views of the many stakeholders who have expressed their delight at the Government of Saint Lucia’s stated commitment to the continued growth of the Saint Lucia Carnival. Island Tribe thinks the staging of the St. Lucia Carnival in 2022 can be improved on several fronts. Through closer collaboration between the Carnival organisers, the various groups and other key players in the sector, exemplified by strategic partnerships, we can develop the largest cultural showcase on the island to heights never reached before.
Island Tribe is ready and willing to support the organizers of St. Lucia Carnival 2022 by showcasing bigger and better carnival product this year and beyond. Partygoers are encouraged to follow the group on our various social media pages for more information on costumes, registration and events.
Lucian Carnival 2022…. Island Tribe is ready!
