~ Testing on Thursday and Friday ~
PHILIPSBURG:--- St. Maartens top event organizer Xtratight Entertainment is preparing to host its first event after a two-year absence while the country was dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic and has collaborated with St. Maarten Laboratory Services (SLS) to facilitate testing and establish a safe environment for its fans.
“Fyah Under Yuh Foot” will be held on December 4 at the Tropicana Ball Room. Known as a “big people party”, the event is one of Xtratight’s signature events, with the uber-popular “Night of the Hit Makers” concert for Carnival also under its umbrella.
Director of Xtratight Bertaux “Mr. Rude” Fleming explained that “Keeping in line with the Covid-19 guidelines and our efforts to ensure safety for all its patrons, Xtratight Entertainment has partnered with the national laboratory of St Maarten SLS for its Covid testing procedure. SLS is the only accredited lab on the island which means it’s the only lab that is recognized by international standards, this alone gives all reasons for us to collaborate with SLS besides being our own. We remain Pro Local,” he stressed.
The testing protocol for this event is straightforward and eliminates hassle: Tickets for Fyah Under Yuh Foot went on sale from Thursday, November 18th, the price is $50,- and includes a free Antigen Test for all patrons. Limited tickets are available and NO tickets will be sold at the door. All visitors must present a negative antigen test to enter and only SLS antigen tests are accepted. Testing dates and times for persons attending Fyah Under Yuh Foot are Thursday, December 2nd from 6 pm - 9 pm and Saturday, December 4th from 12:30 pm to 3 pm, testing on both days will take place at SLS main office in Cayhill.
“We were never in a rush to come back online as most of our fans are part of the vulnerable group and safety always comes first with us. Based on the development and the decrease in numbers, not to mention the high demand for a big people party we have decided to host the event. As a fan-driven organization we always aim to please, so patrons can expect a night filled with fun and dancing straight through the night,” Fleming said.
