According to the Gleaner Bartlett who was speaking at the Montego Bay launch of Reggae Sumfest, held at Iberostar Rose Hall Beach on Thursday, May 18 lauded the capacity and consistency of the organisers led by CEO of the Downsound Records Joe Bogdanovich.
Bartlett has been impressed with the exceptional 25-year legacy of Reggae Sumfest and issued a challenge to the organisers.
“After Sumfest is over and you break records this year, you have to come back to me in November with a special global tribute as Jamaica hosts 157 ministers of tourism from across the world. A conference like the Western World has never seen, the first of its kind to be done by the United Nations’ World Tourism Organization. Joe and the team will give to the world a musical feast that they will never forget,” said Bartlett.
“The love for Destination Jamaica is the reason for my team’s passionate pursuits in entertainment and hospitality. It is an honour to be part of what will be a monumental opportunity for Jamaica, and we anticipate an excellent partnership with the Ministry of Tourism in bringing this dream to fruition,” Bogdanovich said in his response.
This years’ 25th Edition of the greatest reggae music festival on earth celebrating Jamaican music and culture promises to be an exciting event with a fascinating line-up slated for July 16-22 festival at Catherine Hall in Montego Bay, St James.
