Buju Banton will not be the only Jamaican gracing the music stage when he takes his Long Walk to Freedom tour into St. Kitts. The living reggae legend will be joined by Popcaan who has also been confirmed for the St. Kitts Music Festival at the Kim Collins Stadium at Bird Rock from June 27 to 29.

St. Kitts deputy Prime Minister, Shawn Richards, who is also the minister of culture, says that Buju Banton and Popcaan is the perfect combination to attract all age groups to the event.

“The music festival caters for all. Even the prime minister attends the music festival, and he enjoys it,” Richards said. “From all of the feedback that has been gathered thus far, it appears to me as though this year’s music festival is going to be if not the best, one of the better music festivals held thus far.”

While Popcaan is expected to draw the millennials with his dancehall style, Buju Banton who has a more mature catalog mixed with reggae and dancehall is expected to draw an older crowd.
