CELEBRATING REGGAE IN THE PARK 10
Wednesday 3rd April 2019

HAPPY 10TH ANNIVERSARY REGGAE IN THE PARK

Tuesday, April 30th marks the 10th edition of Reggae in The Park, the annual mid-regatta concert during Antigua Sailing Week (ASW).  To highlight the milestone of this anticipated musical event, the regatta will host its first ever Reggae in The Park Race Day which race starts at 10am.  To further celebrate this epic event, the organizers have announced two headline acts for the 10th edition of this concert. Globally renowned artists Christopher Martin and Junior Kelly will step on the Nelson's Dockyard stage Tuesday evening to entertain the thousands of Reggae in the Park fans who are to expected attend.

Over the past 9 years, Reggae in the Park has presented  an impressive line up of must see artists including Third World, Maxi Priest, Kymani Marley, Steel Pulse, Damian Marley, DJ Private Ryan, Shaggy, Luciano and most recently Tarrus Riley.

"This international event is an incredible opportunity for homegrown acts to expose their music and our culture to the world," says Rana-Jamila Lewis, ASW event manager. "Fans have been calling and messaging us for the past month to find out who the featured artist is and we are thrilled to be able to finally present this line up, " says Ms Lewis.  She adds that the show's reputation has made it an evening that locals and sailors enjoy equally,  "It has grown from a show to a festival of reggae music where race teams and music lovers join forces to enjoy one of the universally loved musical genres - Reggae.  It is wonderful to see and feel the love between the artists, the fans and our visitors."

Christopher Martin's trajectory from rising star to headliner and ladies man is credit to his catalogue of hits including: Look on my Face, Mama and Big Deal. While Junior Kelly is known for his conscious style and infectious energy with classic recordings such as Love so Nice, Sunshine, and Baby Can We Meet.

As part of the their green initiatives for 2019, ASW has committed to be a paperless event and have partnered with the Ticketing App, allowing patrons to only gain admission by purchasing their tickets via the Ticketing app or the Ticketing Xpress Card.  "We are encouraging fans to buy tickets in advance, and arrive early to secure parking and the best vantage point while enjoying the amazing pre-show featuring top Antiguan talent including DJ's Jime and Illist, and musical artistes LCD-The Band and Blakk Gold. The evening's host Ibis will be on hand to ensure that it will be an amazing night celebrating music, good vibes and creating great memories," adds Lewis.

Fans in Antigua and Barbuda should look out for the Road to Reggae in the Park 10 pre-events, that will include special karaoke nights where fans will be invited to sing songs by artists that have appeared at Reggae in the Park since its inception in 2010.
