THOUSANDS of reggae and dancehall lovers made their way to the Digicel Reggae on the Hill on Sunday, bringing the curtain down on the festival which is now in its 11th year.

With perfect weather conditions, not even a drop of rain, the show highlighted the work of several up and coming and seasoned local talent including Empress Roli, Heartafiya, Brimestone, Ras Ali, Bobo, Amber Orano, Superfrost, Tabitha, Daniel and King Slimz, Fantom Dundeal with an appearance by Mole. The artists were ably backed by Project X the band which also backed Jamaican artist Norris Man who hit the stage just before 2 pm.

He set the stage for the regal Queen Ifrica and Luciano the Messenger. The mood of the crowd, especially the ladies changed with the introduction of the smooth singing I-Octane who also brought a member of the audience to the stage to showcase his dancing skills. 

By this time the day was cooling down and created the perfect ambience for roots reggae band Steel Pulse. They were followed by Barrington Levy and the inimitable Beenie Man whose voices were as clear as any studio produced album.

Some artistes questioned the status quo relating to Barbados’ position on camouflage and highlighting Jamaica’s move to decriminalise marijuana.

The packed day of entertainment flowed with the DJs and by emcees Peter Coppin and the Fabulous Miss Kitty. The picnic type atmosphere saw persons opting to view the show directly in front of the stage or over on the lush green, where they could see the show on the Jumbotron.
