Now in its 20th year, MoBay’s Reggae Sumfest is the largest annual music festival in Jamaica, and the biggest summertime stageshow in the Caribbean. This year’s acts include Popcaan, Miguel, Aidonia, FloRida, Tarrus Riley, Kiprich, Tommy Lee, Chronixx and newly announced dancehall-night headliner I-Octane. And given Sumfest’s track record of bringing out big names from Jamaican/dancehall music and American R&B year after year, we’re sure more big names will be added soon enough.
