The promoters of Spring Break, staged annually at Long Bay Beach in Negril have made it to year 11 and they definitely plan to keep on counting. And for this year's staging, Chin of New York Link Up says he's pulling out all the stops to ensure a bigger, better event.
"When we started we had no idea that 11 years later the show would have grown to the level it has reached," Chin stated.
He added, "We are grateful to the people who have supported us throughout the years - both artistes and patrons - and this year we are saying 'thank you'. Spring Break has a great line-up and the admission is straight recession style," the affable New York-based promoter declared.
Big-name acts already confirmed for the Saturday March 12 event include Sizzla, Capleton, Coco Tea, Tarrus Riley, Gyptian, Beenie Man and I-Octane. The intention, the organizers say, is to run a tight production which will allow artistes reasonable time to perform and please their fans.
Also on the lineup are Fantan Mojah, Hero, Junior Cat and Singer J.
