Check out these photos of Reggae Sumfest with Gyptian, Cocoa Tea, Beres Hammond, Movado, Vybz Kartel and many more.

The 19th staging of the greatest reggae show on earth turned out to be more successful than ever. Reggae Sumfest 2011 kicked into high gear with dancehall night on Thursday, July 20 with several current top DJ’s playg to a packed venue. Every artiste put their best foot forward but Cecile, Khago, Kip Rich, Konshens, Bounty Killer and Movado especially thrilled the crowd. Spice with her unique fashion style and collaboration with US singer Maya also deserve special mention as did I-Octane who a big hit and masterfully kept his audience on a high. The DJ of the moment, Vybz Kartel, closed the show however the build-up did not live up to the crowd expectation. 

Despite the late cancellation by R Kelly on International Night 1, the show went extremely well. Reggae greats Cocoa Tea and Bunny Wailer were called in as last minute replacements for the R & B singer. In the end they turned into a splendid performance. Tanya Stephens delivered her usual witty lyrics and singer extraordinaire Beres Hammond was honoured by the organizers for his 35 years in the reggae music industry and his contribution to Reggae Sumfest.

International Night 2 was headlined by US Rapper Nicky Menaj who performed to a jam-packed crowd. Apart from her performance being short, she was well received by the crowd who could accompany her lyric by lyric. Other artistes who made the festival a truly memorable one were Wayne Wonder, Jah Cure and Gyptian. The dynamic reggae band Chalice brought down the curtains to Reggae Sumfest 2011.
