Reggae Sumfest is a week away, however, the island is still reeling from the impact of Category 3 Hurricane Beryl with many places still without light almost a week after the heavy winds and rain.

Sumfest is known to be arguably the most popular yearly event in Jamaica with this year’s show set to be headlined by Capleton, Beres Homond, Babyface, Anthony B, Nigy Boy etc.

Amidst the concerns, Joe Bogdanovich is showing optimism, detailing that none of the festival’s venues nor entities have been impacted severely by the hurricane.

In a new Interview with the Jamaica Star, Bogdanovich stated, “No structural damage was reported in Montego Bay and things are getting back to normal. The festival is on and popping.”

He also showed happiness that the hurricane did not impact the island in a worse way, as earlier predicted.

Despite the lead man behind the event’s usual optimism, only time will tell if Reggae Sumfest will be affected by the disaster.

This year, Sumfest will once again be returning to Catherine Hall in Montego Bay, with several events scheduled for music fans from July 14 to 20. The two major show nights will be on Night 1, July 19 and Night 2, July 20.
