2011 Barbados Reggae Festival

The 2011 Digicel Barbados Reggae Festival was launched on Wednesday, March 9, 2011 at Mount Gay Rum Visitors Centre, which is located at Spring Garden Highway in Bridgetown, Barbados. The festival, organized by FAS Entertainment, promises a five day event showcasing top international reggae artists. Headlining the event is Haitian singer and former presidential candidate Wyclef Jean.

FAS’ Al Gilkes claims that his company can pat itself on the back because the production features an all-reggae cast “rivaling any show in Jamaica—the land of reggae.” He says that, in spite of the poor economy, the production has not been diluted in any way, “When the economy starts to rebound, we would have established this year the fact we have produced a festival that is world class; superior to any of the festivals that we would have staged in the past seven years.”

Minister of Tourism Richard Sealy lauded the efforts of FAS, saying that the festival is a vehicle that will enhance the tourism and local culture.
