The legendary DJ Kurt Riley of Jamaica will headline the upcoming Magnum Xplosion Club Tour that will be taking place next month in Belize.

The tour, which kicks off on March 6, will see Riley making stops in Belmopan, Belize City and San Pedro. The Magnum Xplosion Club Tour is the most recently added element to the Magnum Xplosion series, which has ignited thousands across the region with feverish performances from soca and dancehall’s biggest names.

Last year, Bunji Garlin, Ding Dong, Aidonia, Shenseea, Busy Signal and I-Octane took to Magnum Xplosion stage to deliver explosive performances, as Magnum continues to extend its magnetic energy regionally.

With the tour set to begin in San Pedro at Club inferno on March 6, followed by an appearance at Mikes Cue Club in Belmopan, and Sit & Sip on March 8, the ‘Party Animal’ Riley will star alongside Belizean DJs; DJ Debbie, DJ Mesmarize and Cas, Odessy & Pinky of Evolution sounds

“It’s a great feeling for me and I’m quite excited about the tour. Not only is Magnum making a massive investment in spreading dancehall culture, but they are also working wonders for those that benefit directly from it, both creator and audience-wise. Music has always been my calling, and I can’t wait to bring to Belize what Jamaicans and so many others across the world have been experiencing for years now. Mixing is an art, a real art,” said Kurt Riley

St Vincent & The Grenadines and Suriname have been named as other Club Tour stops for Magnum Tonic Wine. The locations will see Magnum Bucket deals, Magnum Dancers and the brand’s unmistakable vibrant appeal.

“Having one of the biggest Jamaican DJs on the road with us is just another way Magnum Tonic Wine continues to lead the charge with groundbreaking executions. Only Magnum can provide this level of quality entertainment for our consumers, from our extremely talented Magnum Dancers to one of the Caribbean’s most known DJs, the Club Tour will be exceptional,” said Kamal Powell, the brand’s marketing manager for the region.

The Magnum Xplosion Club Tour acts as a precursor to 2019’s Magnum Xplosion stage show series. The first staging of which is set for Georgetown, Guyana, on April 21 at the National Park.
