There was a mellow, soulful mood at Caribana at the start of day three with the early performance of Ben Oncle Soul on the main stage. There was also a very hot, humid atmosphere and it was only matter of time before dark clouds began to appear and the heavens opened. Many festival goers scrambled under cover wherever they could or went looking for the free raincoats handed out by one of the sponsors. It didn’t dampen the mood for some and they carried on dancing in the rain.
Although the storm continued for a while, it stayed off during part of Danakil’s concert on the lake stage and he lifted the audience energy level up by an engaging performance, some of it to a background of lightning and thunder. Let’s hope it stays dry for tonight’s Caribana. There are still tickets available, on the line up on the main stage are Selah Sue, The Cardigans and Marlon Roudette. Click here for details
