Rocking reggae


Share post:

The estimated 8 000-strong crowd enjoyed themselves to the fullest at yesterday’s Digicel Reggae On The Hill event at Farley Hill, St Peter.
No major incidents were reported, according to police. 
As the sounds of Gyptian singing Mama Cry No More filled the air, followed by Junior Kelly, Sizzla and later rounding off the day with headliner Wyclef Jean, the crowd rocked with pleasure.
The lone complaint was the frustration by vendors who, after having to dump food for Sunday, had to prepare again for yesterday’s event, thereby suffering a major loss; but promoter Al Gilkes of FAS Entertainment said he was prepared to listen and possibly compensate them.
As for FAS’ loss as a result of having to shift the show from Sunday to yesterday because of heavy rains, Gilkes could not give an exact figure but said the promoters had been forced to change artistes’ airline tickets and pay for an extra night at hotels as well as other costs.
