“Right now, things are really falling into place,” Shaggy said. “But you know how Jamaicans are, they are gonna wait for the last minute to actually purchase the tickets, but what you have is a lot of corporate companies buying the tickets as Christmas gifts for staff and we really appreciate that. We have the line-up of artiste ready but, you know, we always have a few surprises, so patrons can look out for that.”
