Lack of sponsorship has resulted in the cancellation of the much anticipated return of the 10 To 10 fete. Promoter Freddie Hill told THE NATION it was a long and hard decision.
“It was not because of any competing fete as 10 To 10 was out there longer than most of them. Yes, Dis Is Rick was on the same date of August 3 but that isn’t new as other fetes, and events have to share dates as the festival is only so many days and there are only seven days in a week.
“I was creating a Barbadian event with the five bands to give the people a different show, so bringing back Coalishun and the rest was my way of giving back to the Crop Over Festival,” said the long-time promoter.
He said the budget of $150 000 was just too much for him to handle solely. (NS)
