I Love Soca’s north coast introduction was well attended. Not even the rain could stop the festivities as soca lovers from all over descended upon Grizzly’s Plantation for the popular party series’ first staging outside of Kingston. Part of the Best Weekend Ever line-up, the cooler festival proved to be the perfect start to the long weekend of events. Something Extra brings you the highlights.
