Clash Stream Question ?

SoundClash Cloud Opinion Piece

Reggae Sumfest showed us how it should be live stream shows and events they should be free. Facebook live is free Youtube is and U stream is free there are many many other free platforms to stream content but VRA still choose to exploit the clash fans with continued overpriced very poor quality live streams. VRA streams are no better than Facebook live streams the truth is Facebook live streams are considerably better than VRA streams because Facebook info structure is far far superior to VRA. The promoters who choose to use VRA are watering down their own brand by partnering with people from outside of our community who are proven to only be looking to exploit.

Reggae Sumfest is without a doubt one of the biggest events in Jamaica dancehall/reggae with some of the biggest artiste in the business performing over the 2 nights so how does Reggae Sumfest in Jamaica provide blip free streaming worldwide not only in HD but in 360 too for free not a penny, however, promotors in America want to charge 40 and 50 dollars to watch 5 hours of frankly rubbish ?

Reggae Sumfest live stream free live stream highlights how VRA has been exploiting promotors and clash fans worldwide $5 is the most VRA should charge for streams the facts are VRA is not black owned VRA owners are white English that’s why they have no empathy or compassion if you are in a VRA dance and you try to stream the dance the security will threaten you with removal that is the precise reason the VRA chat room closed people from outside the culture trying to dictate to those whose culture it is.

In Jamaica, Festival Style Is Coolest After Dark

On the island of Jamaica, personal style has always gone hand in hand with music, starting with Bob Marley’s understated tracksuits and the khaki-shirted swagger of cult ’70s reggae movie Rockers. The dapper looks on the scene this past weekend at Reggae Sumfest, Jamaica’s biggest and longest-running music festival, were no exception. Locals, tourists, and reggae enthusiasts from far and wide converged on the open-air grounds of Catherine Hall in Montego Bay to witness the 25th anniversary of this midsummer event. With a lineup of artists that ran from 8:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m., the festival had attendees bringing their freshest looks into the wee hours of the morning.

The weekend’s style standouts included Beenie Man, the undisputed king of dancehall, who came dressed in head-to-toe Gucci, and Capleton, the legendary roots reggae star, who stepped out in a custom three-piece look that could have easily come down the runway at Comme des Garçons. Here, a glimpse at the island’s singular take on festival style.

ST JAMES, Jamaica — Cancer survivor, Feluke sang his way into the hearts of patrons during the early goings of the final night of the 25th staging of Reggae Sumfest, now underway at the Catherine Hall Entertainment Centre in Montego Bay.

The dreadlocks Rastaman, who confessed that at one stage he had given up, seemed to be immensely enjoying his second lease on life as he fitted from corner to corner on the huge stage, delivering his well-received songs.

Feluke, who recently returned from Mexico where he was treated for cancer, sampled Buju Banton’s “It’s Not An Easy Road” in a set which included “Building on Israel”, “Keep Our Souls Alive”, among others.

His performance came after those of Sizzla Kalonji’s son, Meliku and Deep Jahi who were also well received.

Sizzla Kalonji closed the show which featured the likes of Kabaka Pyramid, Stephen Marley, Queen Ifrika, Sean Paul, Sean Kingston, Mad Cobra, Jah Cure, Beenie Man, Chris Martin, among others.

Jah Cure ends feud with Fantan Mojah in entertaining Sumfest set

Jah Cure and Fantan Mojah shook hands and hugged on the Reggae Sumfest stage at Catherine Hall in Montego Bay on Sunday morning, putting an end to their short-lived feud, which reportedly had at one point threatened to become violent.

During Jah Cure’s performance, the reggae singer informed audience members that he saw his “brother” Fantan Mojah backstage, and then called on Mojah to join him centre stage.

The two then shook hands and hugged, before Mojah helped Jah Cure to finish their recorded collaboration, Nuh Build Great Man.

Jah Cure would then deliver Love Is, after which Fantan Mojah sang his own hit, Hail The King, which was greeted by loud cheers of approval by the crowd. Mojah then departed the stage for Jah Cure to complete his act with Longing For and Unconditional Love.

The two had reportedly been at odds with each other since May, when it was alleged that Jah Cure attacked Mojah outside a residence of fellow artiste Capleton. Mojah took to social media afterwards to admit to an incident between the pair, but said that he held no grudges with Jah Cure.

Before that, Jah Cure had started his act with Prison Walls before doing That Girl, Call On Me, You’ll Never Find and What Will It Take.

Sean Paul and his three dancers delivered an energetic performance during the 50 minutes that he was on stage at Reggae Sumfest in Catherine Hall, Montego Bay, on Sunday morning.

Entering the stage with Bum Bum, they kept the tempo going throughout until his closing song, Bounce It Right Here. His overall act picked up the longer it lasted.

After Bum Bum, Sean Paul did Get Busy and Got To Love You, Press It Up and Baby Boy, Gimme Di Light and We Be Burnin.

Like Glue would follow and then Deport Them and Gyalis Pro after which he asked the crowd to indicate by putting their hands in the air, who loves their mother. Getting the requisite response he then gave them Rockabye.

Telling the audience about and then deejaying, Gonna Be Lit Tonight , he then launched into Cheap Thrills, before calling up Chi Ching Ching for them to do their collaboration, Crick Neck, to loud cheers of approval by the Catherine Hall crowd.

Chi Ching Ching would then do a medley of dance songs with Sean Paul joining his dancers.

Gimme Di Light would follow Chi Ching Ching’s departure before She Doesn’t Mind and the closure, Bounce It Right Here.
