Buckle up for a ride through my unforgettable experience with GenXS at Jamaica Carnival 2024. As media for this rising band, I wasn’t just another reveler in the crowd – I got a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the good, the not-so-good, and everything in between.

My Unfiltered Take on GenXS at Jamaica Carnival 2024

So, ditch the sugar-coating, because I’m here to spill the tea (and maybe some sparkling water, because it was hot!).

GenXS: A Feast for the Senses (with a Side of Patience)

Let’s start with the undeniable wins. GenXS knows how to make you feel special. While the general costume pick-up line looked like a scene straight out of a patience-testing game show, media pick-up was a breeze. Score one for efficiency! And that media package? A fresh GenXS tee and an all-access pass – hello, VIP treatment! There were a few practical things that I would add to make it even more special like a branded Gym/String Bag to hold all our Media Equipment, a Cup so we can drink water, and a branded GenXS Towel and Hat to combat the Sun. This meant I could experience everything from the electrifying energy of Jouvert to the epic Road March parade.

Speaking of electrifying, did someone say Machel Montano and Walshy Fire? GenXS pulled out all the stops with celebrity guest appearances and DJs who kept the party pumping. And let’s not forget the costumes! These weren’t your average, run-of-the-mill outfits. GenXS brought the wow factor with intricate designs and vibrant colors that truly captured the spirit of Carnival.

The Not-So-Pretty Side: When Things Get Messy (Literally)

Now, Carnival wouldn’t be Carnival without a few unexpected plot twists. This year, crowd control threw a curveball. With everyone eager to join the fun, the lines between revelers and bystanders blurred a bit. While the enthusiasm was contagious, it also made navigating the throngs (not thongs) a bit of a challenge – safety first, people!

Speaking of challenges, let’s talk food. The sign-up promised a delicious lunch spread, but by the time I reached the designated area, it resembled a post-apocalyptic buffet. The only option left? Vegan (which, as a media attendee, was my first choice), but maybe not others as the complains rang loudly the minute I entered the lunch area. Lesson learned: for next year, an early lunch might be the key to avoiding a hangry meltdown and also speaking with vendors to provide double than what they expect.

GenXS: A Band with Grit and Potential

Despite these hiccups, here’s the thing: GenXS has serious potential. They’re a young band, still finding their footing in the competitive Carnival scene. But their dedication to creating a memorable experience is clear. They’re taking feedback to heart, and I have no doubt they’ll come back stronger in 2025. Read my 2023 Review HERE
