The soca concert, organised by 4D entertainment, saw early performances from Shanta Prince, Mole and Lady Essence, and Red Plastic Bag. It was the right selection to get the party started, with a mix of bashment soca and groovy soca.

Soca queen Allison Hinds also treated the audience with a mix of old and new tunes, while reigning Sweet Soca monarch Edwin Yearwood delivered a high energy performance.
