This explosive new musical celebration combines two previous hit concerts – Irie Jamboree and Caribbean Fever.
The three-day event takes place at the ultra-luxurious Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York City, from August 30 to September 1, on the Labour Day, Caribbean Carnival weekend.
The first night, August 30, shines the spotlight on Creole French music and will feature the internationally acclaimed zouk band Kassav from Guadeloupe and Martinique, alongside Haitian hip hop star Wyclef Jean. Tabou Combo will also play on Friday, as will other stars from the Caribbean Francophone world.
On night two, Saturday, August 31, the soca sensations will sizzle. On the front burner will be Bunji Garlin, Fay-Ann Lyons, Edwin Yearwood, Alison Hinds and Iwer George.
Reggae Night will be mystifying Marley magic as the new king welcomes New Yorkers to Jamrock. Other superstars on Reggae Sunday night will be Grammy winner Shabba Ranks, and hit machines Capleton and I-Octane.
