Irie Jamboree 2008, Queens, NY, USA

Irie Jamboree is an annual dancehall reggae concert that is held in Roy Wilkins Park, Queens, New York, USA. It is an Irie Jam Media event. We passed through Irie Jamboree 2008 (held on August 30) and we must tell you that it was an awesome event. It was the first major Caribbean event in New York, following Jamaica’s great performance at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, China. So it really was a mixture of the Olympics celebration and a dancehall reggae concert in one. It was a perfect summer day and thousands came out to party and celebrate.

The artiste line-up included Beenie Man, Coco Tea, Sizzla, Mavado, Elephant Man, Assassin, Demarco, Admiral Bailey, Empress Isis, and Ras David. Sight and Sound sound system played an impressive set. Two of Jamaica’s female star athletes (Aleen Bailey and Chelsea Hammond) from the Olympics passed through and were well received by the crowd. The two athletes accepted honors on behalf of Jamaica’s Olympic Team. Dignitaries passing through included Yvette Clarke, NY Congresswoman, and her mother, Una Clarke, former Brooklyn counsel woman. Celebrities and special guests were around galore.

All the artistes delivered great performances. It was a beautiful event that drew the curtains down on summer in New York City in fine style. Bim!
