Reggae Sumfest 2016 kicked off to a huge crowd for its Beach Party edition at the Aqua Sol Theme Park in Montego Bay on Sunday night.
Local and overseas dancehall fans turned out in huge numbers for the annual event. The party was hosted by Miss Kitty and Yanique Barrett and saw Crazy Neil and DJ Bambino taking the reins of the turn table.
“The turnout was good and the party vibes was excellent. Everybody had a good time,” Robert Russell, deputy chairman of Summerfest Promotions, said. “The response has been overwhelming. We had a lot of overseas patrons who indicated they would be coming to the All-White Party at Pier One.”
Reggae Sumfest continues its week long festivities in Mobay tonight with the All-White party at Pier One and the Sound System Explosion on Thursday night at the same venue leading up to the biggest event Dancehall Night on Friday at the Catherine Hall Entertainment Complex.
