It’s just 4 days before our second ever 24 Hour Soca fete. The event which is very special to us, first began during the Crop Over 2009 celebrations.
It was a concept we strongly believed in but faced some challenges in making it a reality.
In 2009, the event which is called “24” was all about validating the concept and what a great feeling it was for us, at 10 pm on Saturday, July 25th, 2009 when patrons were still standing in the venue begging for more of 24! We are proud that 24 is a product born and bred in Barbados. We can say that Barbados has been able to successfully host the first ever 24 Hour Soca fete and no one can take that from us. Uplifting Barbados, Crop Over, Soca music and the Caribbean is what we are all about. This year, the focus is on building 24 into a true 24 hour party that our supporters and patrons can enjoy at any period over the 24 hours from Saturday 3:00 am July 24 to Sunday 3:00 am on July 25.

We intend to spread a lot of entertainment evenly throughout the entire event. We would like to also encourage persons to challenge themselves to go the full mile for 24 hours because there is so much great entertainment in store. At the same time, we think that is great if there are some people who want to come at 5:00 am , leave and return to the event, or if someone wants to come later and stay for the entire day. It’s 24 hours of entertainment that our patrons can consume however they choose.
24 Hour All Inclusive
We are going to have a 24 hour all inclusive which will have 3 main "courses" Breakfast, Lunch and Hors D'oeuvres. Naturally we will have all the drinks usually available at Brewster's Road Crew events.
To accommodate the large size of the event, we will be transforming the venue into a concert venue.
Persons can get tickets from listed box offices and EarlyBirdTickets.com who will deliver tickets to visitors’ house, hotel, guest house, villa wherever they staying.
