Sumfest seems to get better and better since recent times, especially notably after the cut back of spending on expensive Overseas artistes and focusing more on local acts, on promotions Island wide and live streams for those who can’t attend the show to see online. Sumfest 2019 kicks off July 14 with the Sumfest Mawnin Medz beach party, followed by the Street Dance, All White Party, All Black Blitz Party, Global Sound Clash and the Reggae Sumfest Symposium.
2018 Reggae Sumfest was a success said Joe who’s the CEO of Downsound Records and head organizer of Reggae SUmfest.
