The promoters of Sting 30, Supreme Promotions and Downsound Records plan to take the event into a new and exciting direction.
Over the years, sting has developed a reputation as being one of the most exciting dancehall and reggae events, and now it will be highlighted on the international stage via pay per view TV.
“This year, we will be celebrating 30 years of Sting. The event has definitely proven itself as being one of the most consistent top-quality live events in Jamaica, and it is certainly the longest-running one. Therefore, we are doing everything to lift the standards of the entire show as we move forward into a new and exciting era,” said Isaiah Laing, CEO of Supreme Promotions.
Sting will stay true to its reputation as being “the Greatest One Night Dancehall/Reggae Show On Earth,” but certain aspects of the show will be improved to make the event more commercial.
“Sting is and will always be the Greatest Dancehall/Reggae Show on earth and we are going to make it even greater. We are putting everything in place to make sure that the event grows in the right direction. we are making Sting into a global brand, that’s why we are concentrating so much on marketing the show on the international scene,” said Downsound CEO Joe Bogdanovich.
Sting 30 will be held under the theme ‘Bring The Sting Jamaica Party 2013’, and will be televised pay per view in several countries, including North America, Japan, and England.
Over the past 29 years Sting has showcased some of the biggest and best reggae/dancehall and international stars, and Sting 30 will maintain that tradition.
The line-up for Sting 30 will feature some of the most exciting performers who have graced the Sting stage over the years such as Super Cat, Ninja Man, Lady Saw, Mavado, Sizzla, Charley Chaplin, Brigadier Jerry, Peter Metro, and others.
Hip-hop superstar 2 Chainz will be the featured international act for Sting 30.
