International Reggae Day is an annual event that celebrates Jamaican music culture and its global influence. It is held on July 1st every year since 1994. The event was founded by Andrea Davis, who was inspired by a speech by Winnie Mandela on the role of reggae music in the fight against apartheid in South Africa. International Reggae Day features concerts, festivals, media broadcasts, and other activities that showcase the rich legacy and diversity of reggae music and its artists. The theme for 2023 is “Saluting the Global Influence of 80s and 90s Dancehall: From Brukins to Bogle”. Reggae music is a mix of rhythm and blues, calypso, African, and Latin American music, characterized by a heavy four-beat rhythm and a scraper instrument. Some of the most iconic reggae artists include **Bob Marley and the Wailers**, who brought reggae music to the international stage in the 1970s. In 2018, UNESCO added the “reggae music of Jamaica” to the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

The biggest and best reggae show on earth on earth, Reggae Sumfest turns thirty this year and if the recent media launch is any indication, we are in for quiet the celebration.
Reggae Sumfest first began in 1993 in Montego Bay, Jamaica and has evolved over the years to become the biggest and best reggae festival in the world, with tens of thousands of patrons from every corner of the globe making the trek to experience this annual legendary festival. Not only do patrons come to see a showcase of local and overseas artists perform they also are blessed to experience the local culture and the abundance of beauty that the tiny island nation of Jamaica has to offer. Reggae Sumfest is not only a reggae festival, but a celebration of all things Jamaican. The abundance of native food, dance, natural beauty, the vibe, beaches, waterfalls mountains and most importantly its nations people make Jamaica a unique experience. The people of Jamaica, who are among the most beautiful natured, creative, joyful, and friendly in the world really enjoy sharing their stories, culture, country and music with you, and Reggae Sumfest captures it all.
From the time of inception Reggae Sumfest has paid tribute and given exposure to so many artists in the genre of reggae and dancehall, as well as hosting cultural events that include Sound Clashes and Street Dance Party’s. The list of artists who performed over its duration is long and distinguished, from veteran reggae artists to up and coming dancehall performers. This year’s line-up is no different with up-and-coming dancehall artists on Festival Night 1 and legendary Morgan Heritage and Freddie Mc Gregor gracing the stage on Festival Night 2.
One of the highlights will sure to be seeing the 8th time World Clash Champions, Mighty Crown Sound System out of Japan as they officially perform for one of the last times since announcing their retirement to work on other projects. Starting out in Yokahama in the early 90s Mighty Crown Sounds System grew a worldwide following and received respect for their amazing skills while sharing Jamaica’s sound clash culture globally. Seeing Mighty Crown Sound System just one more time is truly going to be an emotional and memorable event. Be sure to catch them live on Festival Night 1 at Catherine Hall, Montego Bay and cheer them on one last time as we celebrate two historic moments combined, the retirement of the world’s best Sound System and 30 years of Reggae Sumfest.
Love & Blessings
