Dancehall superstar Spice will claim her place among Jamaica’s music greats when she is crowned Queen of Dancehall at the 28th staging of the iconic Reggae Sumfest, scheduled to take place from July 12-18 in Montego Bay.
Spice is internationally recognised as one of the most prominent dancehall artistes of this age, churning out hit after hit for over a decade. She has also paved the way for younger generations of Jamaican female artistes, many of whom are now established in their own right.
CEO of DownSound Entertainment (DSE), Joe Bogdanovich, noted: “Jamaican female artistes have taken a leading role in the music industry, both locally and internationally, and Spice has been at the forefront of that. Many younger artistes have her to thank for laying the foundation that has led to their success. Spice has performed at Reggae Sumfest more than 10 times, so it is only fitting that she receives the title on our stage. She is an amazing artiste, and we look forward to honouring her.”
Excitement has already started to build for this year’s festival, which promises a jam-packed week of events, starting with the Sumfest Cooler Fete on July 12 and ending with the much-anticipated festival nights 1 and 2.
