FRESH from appearances in Toronto, New York , Tampa and Orlando, reggae singjay Nesbeth is back on local soil and fully focused on conquering the stage at this year’s Reggae Sumfest.
Despite an exhausting schedule the Rastafarian act, who will be making his third appearance on the festival, is very upbeat about his upcoming performance and promises fans something spectacular on Friday’s Dancehall Night.
“Reggae Sumfest is one of those world-renowned festivals where music lovers across the globe descend on Jamaica to see their favourite acts live in concert and so we can’t give the same performance that they’ve grown accustomed to, therefore on a platform such as this we have to showcase our best and even give a little more, and that’s exactly what I intend to do this weekend in Montego Bay,” said Nesbeth.
Under the helm of new franchise owner Joe Bogdanovich, the festival now in its 24th year will see the introduction of a live 360-degree virtual reality streaming for the public to experience the festival on any device over high-speed internet.
In addition to Nesbeth, Dancehall Night’s acts include Beenie Man, Assassin, Spice, Popcaan among others. The festival will conclude on Saturday, July 23 with Reggae Night featuring stalwarts such as Barrington Levy, Sanchez, and Tarrus Riley.
Following his Sumfest performance, Nesbeth, while promoting his latest single D.I.A.L ( Devil Is A Liar), is scheduled to depart the island for a series of gigs in Bimini, Nassau, Freeport and Grand Cayman later this month before travelling to the UK in August.
