With explosive performances by Hood Celebrityy, Nessa Preppy, Davido, Busy Signal and Bunji Garlin patrons enjoyed music and sun for over 6 hours. Jay Upscale, promoter, known for orchestrating some of the best shows in New York and the Caribbean worked diligently to create a space for music lovers to have fun and be safe.


“It’s a lot of work, despite all the last minute changes and adjustments demanded by venue and authorities we still pull through. We thank our supporters this success is because of them and we look forward to entertaining them and hosting more memorable events in the near future” says promoter Jay Upscale.

Bunji Garlin closed the show with the following message: “You know what make all these flags come together, music, you know what make all these flags come together people, you know who can’t get them flags come together politicians in the islands can’t make all these flags come together. Every time a Jamaican come to Trinidad is lock up, Everytime a Trinidadian go to a next island is harassment, a Grenadian go to a next Island is harassment. Government and the system don’t understand we as a people have a love for each other from long time.”

Closing his set the crowd jumped in unison and the audience sang as fireworks lit up the sky. “Great way to start and end my 4th of July” says Michelle Wilson of Newark, New Jersey.
