The High Vibes Roots and Reggae Festival is thrilled to announce that the Grammy Award-winning 'King of Dancehall', Beenie Man, will be hitting the stage at the Aqueduct in Montego Bay.

The first cannabis festival in the Caribbean promises to be an extraordinary event, celebrating Rastafarian culture, on September 3 and 4.

"I am happy to be a part of this historic moment in our entertainment industry," said Beenie Man.

Beenie Man has been involved in the music industry from a young age, and over the years, he has grown tremendously in the industry, where he has done collaborations with artistes like Dennis Brown, Sanchez, and international multiplatinum recording artiste Janet Jackson. But his biggest break in the US came in early 2004, with the release of a remix of Dude, featuring guest vocals by fellow Jamaican Ms Thing as well as rhymes by Shawnna. After cementing his fan base on both sides of the Atlantic, he has established a name for himself all across the world. Beenie Man is no stranger to performing and is happy that the High Vibes Roots and Reggae Festival will be on his busy itinerary.

GREAT HONOUR

"What is a reggae festival in Jamaica without the King of Dancehall? Reggae and dancehall are the root of Jamaica's music industry, and it would be an injustice not to have Beenie Man perform on our stage. Many persons believe that Beenie Man had converted to the Rastafarian culture because of the values he upholds, which are in line with our culture. It's a great honour to have him perform, and we can't wait to show what he has in store for the festival," explained Douglas Gordon of High Vibes Jamaica.

Beenie Man has always been a part of the Rastafarian movement and upholds many of their beliefs, which is sure to be on display at the High Vibes Festival. Beenie Man is the vibe master and is sure to not leave patrons disappointed.

"I will be bringing high energy and hit after hit for the fans. Everyone can look forward to some good vibes at the High Vibes Roots and Reggae Festival," the entertainer said.
