The world-wide shut down has reggae festival lovers missing the festival experience around the globe. It has been a tough time and we give thanks for Joe Bogdanovich & his team at Downsound Entertainment, of which he’s the CEO for providing world-class entertainment to all of us at our homes July 20-25, 2020. Last year Reggae Sumfest brought in over 10,000 international visitors and Millions USD for the local businesses.
Reggae Sumfest 2020 Events will be viewable on Facebook and Instagram on the @reggaesumfest Channel as well as the Reggae Sumfest Youtube channel LINK HERE:
Join the vibes online starting Monday, July 22 and continue to tune in all week for special events/panels and the BIG TWO NIGHTS OF LIVE REGGAE MUSIC WITH SUPERSTARS:
A Taste of Sumfest will present some of the best performances from past years through the Sumfest Spotlight series to be broadcast on Facebook and Instagram between July 20-23.
Chairman and CEO of Downsound Entertainment, and the man behind the ground-breaking Reggae Sumfest/Facebook/Instagram production, Joe Bogdanovich, shared, “The week of activities negotiated provided the opportunity not only for a virtual 2020 Sumfest feature but also for a walk down memory lane to experience some of the brightest moments of the past 27 years. This initiative has many interesting facets that will bring immense value to all the stakeholders in Sumfest. It will facilitate a wider audience of millions for our performers, an incomparable market for our sponsors, and an excellent showcase for Jamaica.”
Bogdanovich noted that reaching a consensus on the acts to be featured in theSpotlight Series was very difficult as there were so many favourites. Making the final cut were performances by Lady Saw, Elephant Man, Rygin King, Cocoa Tea, Koffee, Beres Hammond, Masicka, Spice Aidona, Vybz Kartel, Mavado and Shabba Ranks. “The idea was to have a mix of the classic and the new, and of course the queens of the dancehall could not be omitted”, said Bogdanovich.
The final lineup for the live performances on July 24 and 25 will be announced shortly. Not to be missed are the workshops and panel discussions aimed at entertainment industry personnel to help them to use Facebook, Instagram and Pandora platforms more effectively.
