The organizers of Sumfest may be in jeopardy of losing a couple of major dancehall acts for this year's Summer event with the return of the seminal Reggae Sunsplash.
Thanks to an aggressive marketing strategy, the organisation's management team has already inked contracts with a host of top dancehall acts for the event, a development which could stifle the line-up of Sumfest, and one-up the upstart festival which, to the chagrin of music lovers, knocked Sunsplash out of the picture years ago.
"We cannot say much at this juncture, but we are going to have a wonderful show lined up for the public in June this year, but you will have to wait until our press conference on February 8th to hear more about it in terms of which artistes will be in the forefront," Charles Campbell, one of the key figures in the rebirth of Reggae Sunsplash, told YARDFLEX this week.
The event is slated to start on June 1st and ends on the 6th.
