American rapper Rick Ross is preparing to jet to Jamaica, where he will be performing at a brand-new reggae event titled High Vibes Roots and Reggae Festival.
Rick Ross has been added to a line-up of high-class acts including Ky-Mani Marley, Beenie Man, Lee Scratch Perry, to name a few.
The festival is scheduled for the Aqueduct in Montego Bay on September 3 and 4.
“We plan to create this as an annual event that celebrates aspects of Jamaica’s rich and vibrant music and cultural heritage,” said Douglas Gordon of High Vibes Jamaica, who is putting this unique affair together with an aim to bring visitors to Jamaica outside the peak season of tourist arrivals.
“We have put special thought into the food, craft vendors and experiential components of this festival. We are working to incorporate a Rastafarian Village that will allow guests to learn and experience the Rastafarian culture in a way that is engaging, informative and entertaining.”
Douglas Gordon added that they wanted a show that paid homage to the rich history of Jamaican music; a mix of artistes who are world-class, who are respected and who brought something a little different to the table.
Tickets have also been attractively priced at $3,500 JMD to ensure that a wide cross section of Jamaica can have access to the entertainment package.
$6,500 for VIP.
Meanwhile, Rick Ross is celebrating the 10th anniversary of his bombastic, chest-caving debut LP with a live-streamed concert on August 29th.
The show, dubbed Tidal X: Port of Miami 10th Anniversary, will be presented by the streaming service for both subscribers and non-subscribers, and will feature the Boss performing from the actual Port of Miami in Florida’s Biscayne Bay.
