PHILIPSBURG, St. Maarten - All promoters/persons interested in securing a night to host a concert for Carnival 2018 may now express this intent to the St. Maarten Carnival Development Foundation (SCDF).
The foundation is busy preparing the Carnival schedule for 2018 and as customary has issued a call to potential promoters of a Carnival night and opened registration for such.
The foundation clarified that the music genres/concerts of Reggae and Latin is off the table and, as such, no requests will be accepted for those two music genres.
“Carnival preparation is a year-round exercise. We start early with everything, concerts are no different. Annually we choose to offer the opportunity to host a concert in Carnival because there are some creative thinkers out there with concepts that could enhance the Carnival product,” the foundation said.
“This process has led to independent established brands such as Hit Makers, Flag Fest and Bacchanal Sunday that go along with One Love Reggae and Noche Latina of the SCDF. There is room for a few more so we’re curious about the kind of requests we will receive for Carnival,” the foundation added.
