Safe transport choices for Syzygy show

A year-end bash, the Syzygy Festival, will promote designated drivers as well as offering ferry and bus travel to keep the island's roads safer.

Syzygy, scheduled for tonight from 6pm to 3am, will be held at the former BAR Land Rover headquarters at Dockyard, now transformed into a concert venue called The Shed.

Alex Marshall, the show's promoter, who will also perform under his stage name Fiyah Marshall, said the organisers teamed up with anti-substance abuse organisation Cada and the Bermuda Road Safety Council for the event.

Mr Marshall said: “Anyone that comes to the show will be able to have a designated driver who gets to have free soda and water.

“We noticed there was a different vibe on the island because of roadside breath testing, so we want to encourage people not to drink and drive.”

Marine and Ports fast ferries will carry 350 people from Albuoy's Point in Hamilton to the venue at Cross Island, with a late return trip.

Tickets for transport must be bought online at ptix.bm.

The site also lists minibuses available from Kings Square in St George's and the roundabout by the St George's bridge.

Ferry tickets will cost $15 each and bus transport will be $25.

The line-up of soca and reggae stars will include international headliners Bunji Garlin from Trinidad and Sizzla Kalonji of Jamaica, alongside other top stars like Orlando Octave, Marlon Asher and Pressure Busspipe.
