Top acts for Ecips Music Festival
A melting pot of musical cultures, including old-school reggae, dancehall, reggaeton, hip hop, rhythm and blues, and soca music will comprise the offerings at the inaugural staging of the Ecips Music Festival.
The festival takes place on August 20 at the Roy Wilkins Park in Queens, New York. Among the performers are Akon, Remy Ma, Alkaline, Freddie Jackson, Queen Ifrica, Elephant Man, Denise Belfon, De La Ghetto, KipRich, Mega Banton, Genah, Michigan, Lady G, Tinga Stewart, Roy Rayon, Donyale, Maddadan, and Teflon. The event will be hosted by Miss Kitty.
According to Suzan Peart, one of the promoters of the event, patrons are in for a musical treat.
"Patrons will be a part of a sure-fire successful event and witness 100 per cent performance from the artistes. And don't forget the nice, succulent foods of the Caribbean," she said.
Peart has teamed up with Michael Bailey and Everod Vernon for the festival, which promises to be an annual affair.
