As public outcry intensifies for Trinidad and Tobago’s government to diversify the economy and place a bit more emphasis on Tourism, and brand Tobago, one promoter is doing his part to ensure the world knows that Tobago is an amazing destination, worth visiting. “It’s time we wake up. It’s time we put in the work and that means all of us must do our part,” says Randy Glasgow; this as he explains he’s been meeting with officials of the Port Authority of Trinidad and Tobago, the Tobago House of Assembly and tourism officials across the islands to ensure that Tobago experiences the biggest and most successful Carnival themed festival event, in 2019. The Tobago Loves Soca weekend will be epic, by all accounts, explains Glasgow, and he’s got an A Class DJ cast to prove it.

Red 967FM radio personality, Chinee, has been booked for the event.

Already, the excitement surrounding Glasgow’s premium weekend- long event on the sister isle, is building. Big names on the entertainment circuit like Scorch’s Hypa Hoppa, Chinatown’s Chinee, DJ Ana, Kevon Xof Miami Events TT, Lord Hype, Ultra Simmo, Tweez, Lurbz, DJ Charlotte, Major Penny, Mighty Crush out of Tobago, KaoticInternational and Barbados’ Red Bull 3 Style champ, Deejay Puffy, among others, have been secured for the thrill-seekers weekend. Set for the Valentine’s Day weekend next year, (February 14th-February 17th), Tobago Loves Soca will feature four major events. On Thursday night, visitors will experience the Welcome Party and that will be followed by Soca Spree- a traditional Tobago event that’s promoted by BWV Entertainment. On Saturday February 16th, patrons will be enticed by the white-themed, Dusk In White fete, which will precede Wet N’ Wild on the Sunday.

DaJ Charlotte will also be a featured DJ at TLS weekend!

Glasgow, known for orchestrating major carnival events in Trinidad, says he felt the need to shift his focus a little, giving to Tobago, a product that could essentially work in marketing the island to prospective destination seekers. “Everyone knows Trinidad is the main focus of Carnival, however it’s important for us as promoters to also showcase Tobago’s beauty, its versatility and its charm. We’ve chosen the Canoe Bay Beach resort to host the festival and we’re in talks with major airlines like British Airways, Virgin America Airlines, LIAT and American Airlines, to incorporate the TLS weekend in their marketing and promotional efforts for destination seekers who yearn for a small taste of the Carnival experience, but generally prefer a relaxing vacation getaway,” said Glasgow.

Barbados’ finest, Deejay Puffy will be there.

A Soca star-studded lineup already secured, and celebrity hosts set to be announced soon, Randy Glasgow says all systems are in place to ensure that patrons of the TLS weekend want for nothing when they touch down in Tobago. “Additional flights and sea bridge sailings will be put in place to meet any demands,” he assures. In the same breath he is urging fete lovers both overseas, and domestic, to book their flights or sailings and secure their accommodation packages early. “Everyone’s going to want to be a part of this weekend experience in Tobago. Nothing will compare,” said Glasgow.

Tickets for the TLS Weekend are available at Penny Savers Supermarkets in Tobago and at all NLCB Lotto Booths Nationwide. Package bookings are also available online at www.tlsweekend.com  with a 24 hour hotline u and running as well, at : 868 774 5555.
