BACCHANAL Fridays shifted the party from Mas Camp to the historic Morgan's Harbour in Kingston last Saturday. And promoters say the move has reaped rewards.

“The revellers have turned out. The DJs are great. We're surprised that this new event has already found such a following,” Michael Ammar III, a Bacchanal Jamaica director, told the Jamaica Observer.

The event — Baewatch Cooler Fête — took its cues from Bacchanal Jamaica's January soiree, Soc'in Wet Fête: Cooler Edition, offering patrons plenty of fun in the sun at the beachfront venue.

“Baewatch is coming from an older staple called Wet Fête, which we had earlier in January. The turnout has made this a fixture on the Bacchanal calendar for years to come,” said Ammar III.

The sizeable crowd might not have been as focused on water as at Wet Fête, but many in the audience were dripping in the wee hours of the night after dancing up a sweat to the trio of DJs — New York-based Kevin Crown as well as DJ Tyler and Sanjay. They kept things lively, sparking the random dancing contest.

“What has made Baewatch successful is the support of all of our patrons that showed up [and] the vibe, as the party is packed and they're having a great time. That is all we want out of this: pleasing our patrons,” Ammar III added.

Bacchanal Jamaica will change its formula with a breakfast party, Rum For Breakfast (RFB), scheduled for Hope Gardens in St Andrew on Saturday.
