Alkaline joins dancehall A-listers for Sumfest
The organisers of Reggae Sumfest have confirmed the lyrical Assassin and new sensation Alkaline for Dancehall Night, July 17, of the 22nd staging of the festival.
'The Greatest Reggae Show on Earth' is already shaping up to be 2014's most memorable event and returns to its home base, Catherine Hall, Montego Bay, from July 13-19.
Agent Sasco, aka Assassin, along with the controversial young blood, Alkaline are indications that the festival organisers are putting together a line-up of searing-hot performers, synonymous with exceptional entertainment.
Fans are in for a treat as the prolific hitmaker, Mr Vegas, and the industry's most daring leading lady, Spice, will stamp their own brand of entertainment on Catherine Hall.
Other dancehall artistes confirmed for the greatest dancehall celebration are QQ, Bugle, Aidonia, and I-Octane, who closed the show last year on an explosive note.
While keeping the other names under tight wraps, Sumfest directors are assuring patrons that there will be more exciting announcements to follow in the coming weeks.
"This year's staging will be an entertainment package guaranteed to please, and music lovers should take advantage of the early-bird tickets special to make sure that they can be part of an unforgettable musical experience in Montego Bay come the 13th of July," said Johnny Gourzong, executive director, Summerfest Productions.
Assassin is undoubtedly one of dancehall's top performers with a list of hits from an expansive catalogue.
Fans can expect a lyrical onslaught as the artiste switches between his hardcore persona, Assassin, and the more refined Agent Sasco with hits such as Late, Same Thing Again, Talk How Me Feel and Girls Gone Wild.
Vegas, is the dancehall gifter with treats galore. Currently blazing a trail across the world, the resilient and charismatic performer will touch hits such as Bruk it Down, Party Tun Up, Sweet Jamaica, I Am Blessed and his most recent party rocker, Give It to Her.
Spice will be representing women in the industry and she, too, cannot be discounted or outdone when it comes to performing.
Spice, while being shy and soft spoken off-stage, is the exact opposite when she gets in front of an audience.
The artiste transforms into a raunchy, sensual diva as she delivers lyrics to songs such as Twerk, Why You Mad, and her recent hit, So Me Like It, which was remixed with hip-hop star Busta Rhymes.
The exciting, controversial, eccentric rising star, Alkaline, is also expected to deliver a massive performance in what will be his second appearance on the show.
Alkaline has grown vastly since his debut performance last year, his lyrical delivery and fan base have expanded, and he continues to express himself in bold ways.
The young artiste is expected to keep the audience ignited with songs such as Bruk Out, Things Me Love and Move Mountains.
The 22nd staging of Reggae Sumfest is expected to live up to its mantra, The Greatest Reggae Show on Earth, and with artistes such as Assassin, Vegas, Spice and Alkaline, the organisers are anticipating great, quality performances come July 13-19 at Catherine Hall.
