Among the sponsors speaking at the launch were Caribbean Airlines and the Jamaica Tourist Board, represented by Philip Rose, Regional Director, Northeast USA. He reiterated the Board’s commitment to the Festival, which helps to promote the destination and its rich cultural heritage. He reminded the large crowd of the importance of events like Reggae Sumfest which plays a significant role in attracting visitors to the birthplace of reggae.

Jamaican dancehall veteran, Spragga Benz, who is one of the featured artists on this year’s Sumfest lineup gave a taste a what patrons can expect at this year’s Festival.
