“Every year we look to celebrate Caribbean music and this year is no different,” said co-promoter Steve “Jabba” Beckford in a statement. “We decided to carve out an era, which so many of us love and reminisce on all the time. This era was groundbreaking for dancehall and reggae music in many ways… We had some of our biggest artists in dancehall during the Nineties era [and] many of them still reign today. We decided to pay homage to Nineties dancehall, with some of the hitmakers of the time. Not to mention for the first time in America the Emperor Shabba Ranks and Don DaDa Super Cat will be sharing the same stage.”
