Organizers of the world’s greatest reggae festival, Red Stripe Reggae Sumfest, have promised that this year’s show will be more entertaining and exciting than past years, a press release said.
A significant part of the festival will be the long anticipated return of two of Jamaica’s most sought after, dancehall acts.
Red Stripe Reggae Sumfest will welcome the return of the ‘Poor People’s Governor,’ Bounty Killa, and the self proclaimed ‘King of the Dancehall’ and Grammy award winner, Beenie Man. Both artistes will headline the strongly supported and highly enjoyable Dancehall night, scheduled for Thursday 20 July.
The event, themed ‘Stormfront – the explosive dancehall night,’ will showcase some of Jamaica’s greatest and the worlds’ best dancehall performers and is certain to be, not only entertaining, but also well attended, the release added.
Dancehall fans from across the globe will descend on the Vibes City, Montego Bay, Jamaica, for Red Stripe Reggae Sumfest’s ‘Stormfront’ to see icons, Beenie Man and Bounty Killa on stage on the same night for what is promised to be an energy packed performance by both performers.
Both artistes have committed to delivering a spectacular show in their own unique styles through which they will display their lyrical prowess.
Sumfest Productions Director of Marketing, Jomo Cato, commented, ‘The streets are buzzing in anticipation of the return of the giants, Bounty and Beenie. We expect thrilling performances because the artists save their most exciting stuff for Red Stripe Reggae Sumfest.
‘Bounty Killa’s very recent image transformation, in terms of attire and social involvement, will also serve to heighten the enthusiasm and anxiety already surrounding the upcoming event. But it is his return to share the stage with Beenie Man on Dancehall night that will be the one not to miss for this years’ Red Stripe Reggae Sumfest.’
Red Stripe Reggae Sumfest is slated for July 16 to 22. Look out for the unveiling of a brand new Sumfest website within the next few weeks.
