The 9th annual Reggae & Dancehall Summer Fest is scheduled for September 28-29, 2018 at Maseru Central Park in Lesotho, hosted by Powertainment Productions. The festival had its humble beginnings in a village called Khanyane in Leribe. Leribe is a district of Lesotho with a population of approximately 298,352.and lies on the border of Free State province in South Africa.
The event was highly influenced by the response & love of Reggae & Dancehall by the Khanyane & Leribe communities. Powertainment Reggae Sound felt the need to establish an annual Reggae festival that will set a high standard of reggae presentation in Leribe.
With the growth of the festival over the years, the event has migrated from its original location, Khanyane to the regional capital City (Hlotse), and this year the 9th Annual Reggae /Dancehall Summerfest acts as as flagship Reggae Festival in, Maseru, the capital city of the Mountain kingdom of Lesotho.
“The love, support, and growth of our Reggae Festivals has been overwhelming in the Mountain Kingdom,” explains Don Royal, head honcho at Powertainment Productions. “Our team has gone full throttle about matching the high standards of international Reggae festivals around the globe.”
The event is also envisioned as a Unity initiative with the goal of entertaining, educating, unifying, and promoting social cohesion, moral regeneration & nation building in Lesotho. The team (Powertainment) in collaboration with Mxxl Radio and Shatta-Kulcha Productions is working towards building Reggae and Dancehall in Lesotho.
