The media launch for the second annual DC World Reggae Festival will take place this Friday and will be addressed by Jamaica’s Ambassador to the United States, Audrey Marks.
The Festival, which has now been scaled down to a one-day event on Saturday at the RFK Festival Grounds in Washington DC, will feature Beres Hammond, Beenie Man, Rupee among others.
Event organisers, Omar Stephenson and Hector Carter, have informed that the change to a one-day event means that two of the scheduled acts, including Third World will no longer be on the show due to scheduling conflicts.
He reiterated that the DC World Reggae Festival is a family-friendly event that promotes “world peace” with this year’s theme, “Let there be Peace on Earth”, covering the topics of love, unity, spiritual rejuvenation, and health awareness.
The one-day festival, will celebrate and honour Jamaica’s 60th anniversary of Independence.
