Popcaan has injected some new life into the annual festival Sound Di Alarm.
The show has been always geared towards roots reggae fans, but singer Iba Mahr says the Unruly deejay’s addition to the lineup this year has lifted the show to new heights. The event, held at Dinthill Sports Complex in Linstead, St Catherine, is sponsored by Tru Juice and proceeds are donated to the Linstead Hospital. The show originally started out as a small community party and has since been transformed into a full concert with some big-name acts on the lineup.
“Over the years, we have been seen as a reggae festival, but with artistes like Popcaan added, it shows that Sound Di Alarm is a complete music experience,” Iba Mahr said. “We look forward to giving back to Linstead Hospital every year with this event. Already, hundreds of thousands of dollars has been given to repair parts of the accident and emergency building, and with the continued support from the patrons, we can give even more cash to the hospital next year.”
Other artists on the lineup for Sound Di Alarm this Sunday includes Capleton, Bugle, Luciano, Iba Mahr, Turbulence, I Wayne, Freddie McGregor, Junior Reid, Sizzla, Warrior King, Coco Tea, and more.
