Wickie Wackie Music festival, which was postponed last Saturday due to the inclement weather, is now set for this Saturday, December 16 at the Bull Bay, St Andrew, venue.

The heavy showers which have been lashing sections of the island forced organisers to call a halt to the music festival.

“We were all set to go when the showers came down,” Kumar Bent of the Raging Fyah band, organisers of the event, told the Jamaica Observer.

“The band 6 Points was already on the stage at six o'clock when the rains started. We tried to restart, but we realised that even though the stage was covered the wind was playing havoc and the equipment was getting wet. We had to make a decision to call off the event and set a new date,” he continued.

Bent disclosed that all is set for the new date.

“We have checked with the Met Office and everything should be fine this Saturday. We have the same line-up and all tickets for last week's date are still valid. For the persons who were already inside the venue last Saturday and received an armband, they can return this week once they can present the armband at the gate,” said Bent.

The Wickie Wackie Music Festival is in its second year. The line-up features a mix of alternative reggae acts and bands including Jah9 and The Dub Treatment, Notis Heavyweight Rockaz, Earthkry, Chevaughn, Koffee and 6 Points. Sound systems Rockaz Sound Station, Yaadcore and Gabrie Selassie will also entertain.
