The 2015 festival calendar has been released and features many of the most popular events of the island’s largest cultural showcase.
Several new changes have been made and include the splitting of the calypso eliminations into two nights and two venues. Also, the opening of festival has moved to a Friday evening and will begin at 6PM on December 18. Organisers are promising that the opening will be memorable and provide a taste of what the future shows will be like.
Night of Pan is no longer an official festival show but is scheduled for Wednesday, December 23.
