“It is going to be a massive show… we are really going to be rocking the beginning of the season. The prices remain the same $10 dollars for the tickets to stand at the show, and $20 to sit.” This was expressed by President of the Dominica Calypso Association, Mr Davidson Victor (aka The Observer), in an interview with Vibes News.
Mr Victor encourages the public to come out to support the show and artists. He also urges persons who wish to be seated, to get there on time as seats are limited.
M Victor has also expressed his profound gratitude for the support of the main sponsors of the event, namely: FLOW Dominica; Heineken Beer; and Val Ferry. He is also grateful for the additional sponsors that will come on board as the season continues.
