Usher, Eve, Busta Rhymes, Donell Jones, Tweet, and newcomer Sharissa are among the imported headliners set for Ocho Rios, Jamaica’s fourth annual Sashi Experience festival. To be held Aug. 25, the event will also feature Jamaican musicians Super Cat, Bling Dawg, T.O.K., Dawn Penn, Major Damage, and the John Shop Family performing on Ocho Rios’ James Bond Beach.
The Sashi Experience festival includes a week of related festivities starting Aug. 21. A fashion show, a “kids day” with sports and rides, and theme parties lead up to the concert. A portion of the proceeds from the week’s events will go to the Sashi Charity Fund, which supports efforts to improve the local community.
Last year’s festival featured the likes of P. Diddy, Tyrese, and Shabba Ranks, and drew 15,000 fans to the Ocho Rios location. Other past concerts have featured performances by Snoop Dogg, Lil’ Kim, Ginuwine, and Wyclef Jean.
