Reggae Sumfest Almost Ready For Jamaican Blast-Off
JIM BYERS  JUNE 17, 2019

Reggae Sumfest runs in Montego Bay, Jamaica in late July of this year.
One of the Caribbean’s hottest music parties is almost here.

This summer marks the 27th anniversary of Reggae Sumfest, Jamaica’s iconic music festival, set for Montego Bay from July 14-20, 2019. Organized by Downsound Entertainment and sponsored by the Jamaica Tourist Board, the premier music festival comes on the heels of UNESCO’s designation of reggae as an intangible cultural heritage.

Reggae Sumfest brings together reggae legends with local and mainstream acts of other popular music genres that have originated on the island and broadly influenced the chart topping urban and pop hits of today. The star-studded line-up on Festival Nights 1 & 2 will include global reggae sensation Buju Banton, dancehall veterans Beenie Man and Bounty Killer, as well as Chronixx, Spice, Spragga Benz, Elephant Man, Protégé, Beres Hammond, and more.

This year the festival offers a seven-night line-up of events:

July 14 – Mornin’ Medz Brunch Party

July 15 – Street Dance Party

July 16 – All White Party

July 17 – Blitz All Black Party / Bunji Garlin’s Birthday Celebration

July 18 – Global Sound Clash

July 19 – Festival Night 1

July 20 – Festival Night 2

“It’s been a historic year for both tourist arrivals and Reggae music, and we are thrilled to host this premier music festival again,” noted Donovan White, Jamaica’s Director of Tourism. “Reggae Sumfest continues to add unprecedented value to Jamaica, the birthplace of the music genre, as it offers one of the most authentic cultural experiences on the island for locals and visitors alike.”

As one of the most viewed festivals in the world, Reggae Sumfest will be live streamed across broadcast and other platforms, taking Jamaican music, artists, and culture to every continent and country around the world. You can view at: www.reggaesumfest.com/coming-soon/

Montego Bay, Jamaica’s resort capital, boasts an array of accommodation options for Reggae Sumfest attendees:

Boutique: S Hotel, overlooking Jamaica’s famed Doctor’s Cave beach, is a new 120-room hotel artfully combining discrete urban sophistication and a laid-back resort lifestyle. In celebration of the recent grand opening, travelers can book at special introductory rates from $179 per day.

The highlights of the event week are the two festival nights on 19 and 20 July. These evenings feature some of the island’s biggest stars – from contemporary roots reggae such as Protoje or Chronixx to dancehall greats like Govana to music legends like Beres Hammond.Things are getting hot again in Montego Bay: From July 14 to 20, 2019, the well-known holiday resort on the Caribbean island of Jamaica will be host to the largest reggae festival in the world for the 27th time – the “Reggae Sumfest”. More than 50,000 visitors are expected.

Reggae is far from the only one, but the most famous style of music in Jamaica. He developed in the late 1960s from his predecessors Mento, Ska and Rocksteady. Through musicians like Peter Tosh, Jimmy Cliff and of course Bob Marley, the reggae became world famous and also influenced international pop culture.

Because of its key role in Jamaican society and its spiritual importance to the Rastafarian community, the Reggae 2018 was included by UNESCO in the list of intangible cultural heritage.

Many young Jamaicans today prefer the harder and electronic “riddims” of the dancehall. Nevertheless, reggae is and remains an integral part of Jamaican identity. The “Reggae Sumfest” is just one of many opportunities on the island to meet this unique style of music.

GLOBAL SOUNDCLASH @ REGGAE SUMFEST 2019

06/08/2019 by Press Release

The Global Soundclash event prior to Reggae Sumfest’s Main Nights features Selectors from around the World!
From Japan: YARD BEAT
from Canada: KING TURBO (World Clash Champions)
from Germany: WARRIOR SOUND
plus Jamaican heavyweights: RICKY TROOPER and PINK PANTHER!
Jamaica’s rich music and culture which have impacted and infused itself throughout the world also produced the soundclash, which is one of the many musical standouts which originated in the country that birthed reggae and dancehall. More classically defined, a soundclash is a DJ battle (mostly in reggae and dancehall) where two collective sounds – consisting of one or more selectors (or DJs as they say in the U.S.) – go tune for tune. They often use custom remixes (aka dub plates) featuring drops from marquee artists to win over the audience.
On Thursday, July 18th, Jamaica’s largest music festival Reggae Sumfest brings back the Global Sound Clash again this year to Pier 1. At 8pm the nail-biting competition begins between leading sounds from Jamaica, Japan, Germany and Canada – Ricky Trooper, Pink Panther, Warrior Sound, Yard Beat and King Turbo.
Following the packed and riveting World Clash 20th Anniversary Sound Clash of Reggae Sumfest 2018 at Pier One [VIEW THE PHOTO REPORT HERE!], the 2019 All-Star Global Sound System Shoot-Out promises to be an exciting competition.

LA Lewis ready to answer Sumfest call

Dancehall artiste LA Lewis believes that his Sumfest debut is imminent and could happen as early as next year.

“Me and Joe (Bogdanovich) always have a good relationship and he’s always boosting me to go in the music business. Every year, Trillionaire Records and LA Lewis play our part in promoting Sumfest, but next year certainly, I’ll be booked for it,” he said. “This year we’re supporting Sumfest behind the scenes and on the ground but next year, we a run the stage. It’s going to be a star time when the ‘seven star general’ touch Sumfest stage. You know I’m incontestable so there’s nothing to contest wid me.”

The entertainer revealed that despite making strides in the music industry in recent times, he believes the timing wasn’t right for him to introduce himself to the Sumfest audience and so even if he was offered a spot, he would have declined.

He added that having laid a solid foundation over the past five years, he is now ready to put his 100 per cent behind solidifying his music career.

“Over the years, LA Lewis was always in the marketing side of the industry and the promotion side. I’m the guru, the god of social media, the street god. Me did a make me name in the streets and build mi ting a certain way before me come out there wid di artiste thing serious, serious,” he said. “My company Trillionaire Records is up fully now … so we’re heading into the music business fully now. We even have a new artiste name Shynetyme from MoBay that we’re working with, and we a work wid artiste like Lybran and the 6ix dem also.”

The artiste also congratulated Reggae Sumfest on its 27th anniversary, stating that as the birthplace of reggae, he is proud that Jamaica has managed to sustain a show of Sumfest’s magnitude for so long.

“Sumfest are the ones holding up the dancehall and the reggae music industry, not only in Jamaica, but the world. Everyone knows that Jamaica is the factory, so any time the factory bruk dung, the whole world a go bruk dung. Me affi thank Joe for carrying on this, and Mr (Johnny) Gourzong dem for holding it out over the years. The thing is on a next level now.”
