Meltdown Carnival Band
Meltdown XD Carnival Band is a band from Vieux Fort that is determined to put talent from the south on display. Most of the team comprises former mas camp members from the St Lucian Spirit Carnival Band. Staying true to what they learnt from the band, organizers say they maintain that costumes are created, designed and crafted locally. The band’s theme for this year is ‘EPIC: Dangerous Liaison’ which is based on the romantic tragedy of Queen Cleopatra of Egypt and the Roman general Mark Antony. The band’s costumes will be displayed at the Vieux Fort Carnival Launch today, Saturday, June 3, at the Windward & Leeward Brewery. At the event, the band’s 6th and final section will also be revealed. If you’re attending, be sure to find out more from organizers about participating with the band in the Vieux Fort Line Jam scheduled for Sunday, August 3. This year’s theme is ‘Vendetta’!
