The Stars R Us show, initially scheduled for Saturday, will now be held on October 20. This is due to a conflict of dates at Ranny Williams Entertainment Centre in St Andrew, where the event is set to be staged.

Despite the change of date, the lineup remains the same — The Wailing Souls, Carl Dawkins, Big Youth, George Nooks, Cocoa Tea, Half Pint, Admiral Bailey, Josey Wales and Flourgon, will perform.

On October 13, the Ranny Williams Entertainment Centre hosts Heritage Fest 2018, a Jamaica-theme culture village which runs until National Heroes' Day, October 15.

This was confirmed by Andrew Clunis, director of marketing and public relations at the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission, which is responsible for staging the free, three-day family event.

“We wish to advise the public that Heritage Fest is definitely going ahead October 13-15 as advertised. There was a booking misunderstanding on the part of the promoters of Stars R Us but the matter has been resolved and Stars R Us will instead take place on October 20, also at the Ranny Williams Entertainment Centre,” he told the Jamaica Observer.

The Heritage Fest village, which opens at noon daily, will offer traditional Jamaican, Indian and Chinese food as well as cultural displays, rides and games.

On Saturday, Richie Stephens and the Ska Nation Band, Wayne Marshall, Stranger Cole and the Ruff Kut Band will be in concert, starting at 8:00 pm. Stephens and Ska Nation will also launch their album, Root of The Music.

Then on Sunday, October 14, gospel takes centrestage with the Revival Time Music Festival church service, which begins at 10:00 am. At 5:30 pm, will be the Revival Bands Sing Off Competition with guest artiste singer Sister Pat.
