Following Reggae Sumfest’s lineup announcement this week, Jamaica’s annual music festival adds more flavor to the mix with Stefflon Don and Safaree. The two artists will both perform at Sumfest’s Blitz “All Black” pre-party on Wednesday (Jul 18). Safaree will also host the event. This is one of the many back-to-back themed parties leading up to the 2-day iconic concert on July 20-21 held in Montego Bay.

Stefflon Don, the UK rapper, singer and songwriter with Jamaican roots, has been turning heads with her sharp-tongued lyrical versatility and fierce bravado. With a series of hit singles like her U.S. Top 10 Hurtin’ Me featuring French Montana, 16 Shots, Real Ting and Ding-A-Ling featuring Skepta and collaborations with Future, Jeremih, Halsey, Sean Paul and J Balvin, the current NME Magazine cover star is poised for international stardom.
Safaree, the U.S. rapper and reality television star, has been making waves with his newest single “Hunnid” and a slew of mixtapes (It Is What It Is, It Is What It Is Vol. 2, Real Yard Vibes and Fur Coat Vol. 1) that blend dancehall and hip hop. The Love & Hip Hop star will bring his signature style and braggadocious flow to the festivities.

Music will also be provided by DJs Rolexx, Creep (Chromatic) and Team Shella at The Blitz “All Black” party.

Reggae Sumfest has now expanded to 8 days of real authentic Jamaican entertainment and food. See lineup and schedule below.
