Bermuda Soca vs Reggae Event
In July end/August, Soca vs Reggae concert takes place as the Cup Match
after party in Bermuda. The event starts usually at around 8:30pm and continues into late night/early morning. Just like the way Somerset Cricket Club and St. George's Cricket club compete during the cup match days, Soca and Reggae DJs also compete neck to neck during this event that follows the cup match.

Recently, the event has gone global which means that there will be many visitors coming in and joining the concert from other countries. All the audience are encouraged to come wearing the cup match supporters outfit which is light and dark blue for St. George’s team, red and dark blue for Somerset. This way the sense of competition and the excitement during the event increases manifold.
Other than general tickets, VIP tickets are also available which usually have raised viewing area, access to front stage, complimentary food and drinks, sponsor's giveaways etc.
