After announcing last month that Jamaica's leading music festival, Reggae Sumfest, was under new management, Josef Bogdanovich, CEO of Downsound Productions, has now revealed the newly re-focused two-night lineup for Sumfest 2016, rolling out with the slogan "our music, our festival."

This catchphrase holds a vital clue to the spirit of the newly re-imagined festival-with the whole world rocking to Jamaican sounds recorded by "foreign" artists, Reggae Sumfest is now focusing on 100% Jamaican lineup, letting go of the whole "International Night" mindset.

Moving forward from its long-standing Thursday night slot, Saturday, July 23rd is the festival's inaugural Reggae Night 2016 with strictly world-class singers like Barrington Levy, Luciano, Sanchez, Tarrus Riley, Busy Signal, as well as Downsound's own up-and-coming artist Nature.
