“Jah Cure is one of the best reggae artistes that Jamaica has produced and you can look at his music as proof of that. He has been a hit-making machine since he first started and continues to produce hit after hit today," said Joe Bogdanovich, CEO of Downsound Entertainment.

"Aidonia similarly has been a hitmaker on the dancehall side and he is easily one of the top five dancehall artistes currently, with several hit songs and a strong presence. I am excited to see both on the festival,” Bogdanovich added.
