Recession bites into Reggae Festival
THE GLOBAL RECESSION has hit the biggest reggae festival in the Caribbean.
At the Wednesday night official launch of the Digicel Barbados Reggae Festival 2013 at the 3Ws Stand in Kensington Oval, Fontabelle, promoter Al Gilkes of FAS Entertainment said they have had to suspend the two-year old Bajan Night and boat ride.
“The cruise is normally held on the MV Harbour Master, but it has sailed from our waters.
“This year is a special occasion because Tarrus Riley’s birthday falls on the Thursday of the week of the festival and he wanted to know if we could do something for him.”
