Carnival 2018

Hi,

I am a solo guy looking to experience the TNT carnival 2018. This will be my first time travelling to TNT, I generally go to Jamaica but am goner try a change next year. From what I have learned so far I think I would like to join a band 'play mas'. If anyone can give me some advice on TNT, where best to stay? when best to reach there? I will be staying for 7 nights, how I go about joining a band? what are the best bands to join? From what I have seen on YouTube I do like Tribe. Some do's and dont'so, just some general information to get me started would be great.

Hi there! What a great choice; Trinidad, for your next destination holiday and better yet, for carnival. Trinidad is the mecca of Carnival. It's best to come at least a week before Carnival as there are usually fetes (parties) every day before the actual 2-day Carnival celebration.

With regards to accommodation, it all depends on your budget but there are many options, from the high-luxury hotel to the bed and breakfast. Bands usually fill quickly but for Tribe band, you can check this link and browse, or search Tribe Band on Facebook: http://www.carnivaltribe.com.

Let me know if you need more information.

Hello

If you wish to go to the Panorama (steelpan competition) event, tickets usually come out just a few weeks before. The way it is set up, you can go in different stands or if you don't want to pay, the bands usually practice right outside the venue. They line up in order of appearance on stage and you can go to each band as they prepare to go on. In addition to the main carnival parade of the bands on Carnival Monday and Tuesday, there are a few traditional carnival events. These are inclusive of the King and Queen of the bands competition, stick fighting, traditional carnival characters parade and several calypso events and competitions. Sorry that the information is not readily available online. I can imagine that this is not ideal for advanced planners coming from overseas. As we get nearer to the events, more information becomes available. Hope this helps.
