Mack: “I’ve got a group of guys that have never worked together before to come together to work on this project which became Epic. We have a world-renowned Caribbean DJ, DJ Private Ryan, who also has a brand Soca Brainwash. Another partner is Walshy Fire, one-third of Major Lazer, whose originally from Jamaica. Scorch – also a Trinidad native – has an entertainment company that does events anywhere Carnival is happening around the world. Caesar’s Army is also a partner who attracts people like Usain Bolt to his events.
“I’ve put together a dream team to evangelize the culture, spread the good gospel of Carnival culture, and bless the world.
“The concept of Epic is [guests] fly into Barbados on February 16th. Flying into Barbados during this time is $500 to $1,000 cheaper than flying into Trinidad, because of supply and demand. So, it’s a cheaper way to get into Trinidad for Carnival by saving on the flights.
“You board the ship. We’re going to have an amazing party with iconic Caribbean DJ, DJ Puffy, and different soca artists [performing] on the ship. As soon as you dock in Trinidad on Friday morning, we have a brand new fete aka a big party, a huge production. There will be music, food, drinks, live entertainment, and steelpan drummers.
“[Guests] will go to a bunch of fetes and the ship will have all-day parties and entertainment. Everybody on the ship has access to free alcohol and free food, all day. Your cruise ticket to get on the floating all-inclusive resort, or floatel, also includes tickets to all of these events. It’s saving you money, time, and energy in trying to get access to events.”
Epic attendees have an itinerary filled with access to more than a dozen fetes and other various events. The list of events includes a new brand under the Epic umbrella, Duck Work, Aqua, and Pandemonium, to name a few.
Mack continues, “Our premium upgrade gets you into A.M. BUSH and Soca Brainwash. Both events are already sold out; the only way to get tickets right now is to buy premium access on our ship because they are partners. You also get access to some breakfast parties including AWAKE Breakfast Party & Elements, a breakfast fete that includes all-you-can-eat breakfast and all-you-can-drink alcohol.
“Basically, at any hour of the day, we can celebrate life, or fete.
“Our package also includes the option to get into J’ouvert. The band I like to play with and that everyone will have access to is called Coco Devils. Trinidad has one of the highest tiers of cocoa in the world, and we take raw cocoa and paint our bodies in the raw cocoa. You’re going through the streets of Port of Spain seeing everybody having fun and dancing. Nobody cares about color, race, or creed because you’re all blended together in this harmonious intermixing of colors, paint, music, and sound. J’ouvert is one the best experiences of Trindad Carnival because you do this until sunrise and, for that moment in time, you’re all truly one being of people.
“I put together this team of partners that I believe is epic and brings accessibility and amazing, quality events. This is your premium, exclusive way to experience Trinidad Carnival headache-free, like a local that is in the know, has connections, and relationships for the best experience you can have at Trinidad Carnival ever.
“What’s special about 2023 is we haven’t had Trinidad Carnival for two years, so this is a built-up eruption of the mother of all carnivals that we’ve ever seen.”
