Preparations are well underway for the highly anticipated Cockspur Rise Soca Kingdom, powered by 98.1 The One.

The event, which was launched this morning at Kensington Oval, will be headlined by Machel Montano and Super Blue out of Trinidad and Tobago. An all-star Bajan cast is also on the cards.

Cockspur Rise Soca Kingdom is being produced by Mastermind Creative Productions, a group of stalwarts in the entertainment industry with over 80 years’ experience.  

Kirk Brown, who spoke on the behalf of the group, promised a fantastic show for all.

“I’m really excited about this production. We are looking to go bigger and better, set the bar even higher. We are looking at past mistakes of other events and learning and improving on that. So setting up earlier, better VIP, better access and so on. It may seem small but it’s really important,” he said. (DB)
