As December gets closer this is the time of year that we look forward to the highly anticipated WELCOME TO JAMROCK concert set to take place on Friday, December 21 at grounds of The Concert Spring Football Field. The venue was once again used because “when all the lights are put in place, it is a delightful spot in Kingston” according to Rupert Bent of BentSpeare Entertainment, producers of the concert.
Ever since the release of his album WELCOME TO JAMROCK, which entered Billboard’s Top 200 Albums Chart at Number 7, selling over 85,000 units and making it the biggest opening week for Reggae, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley along with his mother and step-dad (Cindy Breakspeare and Rupert Bent Snr.) saw the need to stage this event on an annual basis.
Welcome To Jamrock is staged by BentSpeare Entertainment which always features a number of renowned artiste’s, The Marley Brothers being the main act. Previous years included: Sean Paul, Alaine, Gyptian, Richie Spice, Morgan Heritage, Buju Banton, Tanya Stephens, Luciano, T.O.K and Tessanne Chin. Even though the line up for this year has not been officially released, there is no doubt that it will be one of the most anticipated shows this Christmas.
The main sponsors to date are Appleton Jamaica Rum, the Hilton Kingston, Air Jamaica, Wisynco, Ticket Animal and Kingston Beer.
