“We know how tight things are for everybody right now with the recession and all that’s going on economically, therefore we are trying our very best to give our patrons a very good event for their money. We have always tried our best to deliver a very good entertainment package to our supporters; since we began HYPE 2K four years ago we have always maintained this approach. This year will be no different as we have put together another very exciting package again,” said Mr. McRae.
HYPE 2K10 will be a day and night event, with a family fun day and stage show. The fun day will feature a host of activities for the children such as Bounce About, Go Carts, Ferris wheel, Donkey rides and the electronic bull. There will also be other attractions such as car sound clashes, a dance competition, singing and deejaying competitions. Entertainment will be provided by the Diamond Squad Dancers and Black Roze sound-system.
The stage show will feature a very exciting lineup of artists which is headlined by some of dancehall and reggae music’s hottest names such as Vybz Kartel, Sizzla, Lady Saw, Jah Cure and Assasin aka Agent Sasco. In addition to those acts patrons can also expect exciting performances from the likes of Peter Metro, Nitty Kutchie, I Octane, Lady G, Konshens, Lisa Hyper, Delly Ranx, Pamputae and New Kidz. Also included in the lineup are some very talented new acts such as Timmi Burrell, Que, Brimstone, Richie Innocent, Don Sniper, Ras Oneily, Killer Don, Sherrif, Delus, Determine, Vybrant, Ishawna and Chedda.
“Our lineup for HYPE 2K10 is a very good one, it features a very good mixture of artists. We have several dancehall and reggae heavy weights along with some seasoned campaigners. We also have a lot of the new stars on the scene as well as some very talented upcoming artists,” said Mr. McRae.
He also noted that it would be almost impossible to stage an event of this magnitude without sponsors. The sponsors for HYPE 2K10 includes Don Cardona, CVM TV, IRIE FM, X News, The Jamaica Star, Tori Shae’s Productions, Rum Bar Rum, Full Throttle, Magnum Tonic Wine, LINKZ FM, VYBZ FM, John Swaby’s Ent., Outa Road.com, Las Vegas Café and Entertainment Vybz.com.
