MONTEGO BAY, St James — The new-look 26th staging of Red Stripe Reggae Sumfest moves into high gear tonight with World Clash at Pier One in Montego Bay.

This year, the festival features eight days of activities across the resort city, starting last Sunday with Colourfest at Tropical Bliss Beach.

That was followed on Monday with 'Street Dance' on the city's famed Hip Strip. The activities moved to Pier One on Tuesday for the popular All White party, while Blitz with Safaree and Stefflon Don were scheduled to unfold at Hard Rock Café Montego Bay last night.

The festival moves to Catherine Hall Entertainment Centre tomorrow for what is dubbed 'Festival Night 1' and features acts such as Popcaan, Spice, Bounty Killer, Aidonia, and Masicka.

On Saturday, dubbed 'Festival Night 2', the show is headlined by Damian 'Jr Gong' Marley, Capleton, and Maxi Priest.

The festival concludes on Sunday with 'Morning Medz' breakfast party at Dump Up Beach.

Yesterday, Robert Russell, Sumfest director, told the Jamaica Observer West that he was pleased with the activities so far, and was looking forward to the biggest festival to date.

“This year promises to be the biggest and best Sumfest. Alot of visitors are here for the festival, as well as persons from Kingston and other parts of the island, so I think we're going to have the biggest Sumfest this year,” said Russell, adding that he expects bumper crowds at the Catherine Hall venue tomorrow night and Saturday night.
