Romain Virgo is the latest addition to the line-up for our 25th anniversary. The young Jamaican artist will be on Main Stage on Saturday August 18 and his presence brings on of the new protagonists of the music scene on the Caribbean island. Romain is possibly, within the framework of this young generation of artists from Jamaica, one of those who has most firmly followed the tradition of legendary figures such as Alton Ellis, Ken Boothe and John Holt, who were later followed by the likes of, Dennis Brown, Beres Hammond and Cocoa Tea – these last two are also present in the 2018 line-up.
Together with the announcement of Virgo, we add another one: on August 20, we can confirm the presence of Duane Stephenson as a special guest in the show to celebrate Alborosie’s 25 year career. The Jamaican thus adds to a show that already has a luxury cast: given that joining Alborosie & Shengen Clan will also be members of the Wailers, with whom he has collaborated in his most recent release.
