Organisers of the upcoming Unity Fest featuring internationally known reggae artist Buju Banton, say the live concert in Bermuda is expected to be the biggest concert of the summer.
The veteran reggae artist is set to take the stage at the National Sports Centre on August 17 and looks set to be sold-out, with some VIP categories already done in terms of advance ticket sales.
The line-up of artists scheduled to appear includes Wayne Wonder, who has graced the stage on local shores before, Agent Sasco aka Assassin and Masicka, in addition to Bermudian artists Jesse Seymour, Live Wires and C’Danger – all backed by the Wall Street Band.
DJs include the mighty sound out of Jamaica – Stone Love and Bermudians DJ Chubb, Jugglin Jason, iBreeze and Black Star.
MC hosts for the event are Jabba and Young Chow of Hot 97.
A spokesman said today: “We are excited to bring one of the best concerts Bermuda has seen in a long time. We have curated an excellent lineup with excellent international and Bermudian talent and anticipate an outstanding event. Early bird tickets sold out almost immediately, so we know patrons are eager to attend Unity Fest.”
The concert is scheduled to begin at 9pm with gates opening at 7pm. As it stands now, there are limited general admission and VIP tickets still available at www.unityfestivalbda.com.
A Unity Fest ‘Welcome Mixer’ is scheduled to be held in the lead up to the show on Friday, August 16 at the Hamilton Princess Hotel from 5pm to 10pm and a Pre-Concert Bash at Pier 6 from 10pm to 2am.
