The week leading up to the Colombo Music Festival presented by Cinnamon Life will be studded with the arrival of the stars who will make 18 August a day to remember. The excitement is building up across the Island with the news of their onset in the days to come. 

The nation’s ardent reggae and dancehall lovers would love to know that the streets of Colombo will be graced by some of the biggest names of the genre, as they gear up to perform in the biggest music festival.

Richard ‘Goofey’ Campbell and some of the other members of Big Mountain arrived in Sri Lanka on 14 August, well in advance to get everything ready for the event and give their best to their fans and all those who would be at the event to have a good time. 

Despite being tired after a long flight, they conveyed their excitement in performing in Sri Lanka and how much they look forward to Saturday to entertain the Sri Lankan audiences. “Check it out, you got to be there. We are very excited to be here right now. I love Sri Lanka, I love the food and the people!” ‘Goofey’ from Big Mountain claimed excitedly. 

When asked about what to expect of them at the festival they said “It’s gonna be fire, check it, it’s gonna be fun on the 18th, nothing less than high energy!” they exclaimed. 

Goofey revealed a bit about their performance: “It’s gonna be a lot of base, a lot of reggae music, some pop music mixed with reggae.” Asked if there are any surprises in store, Goofey said confidently: “We can’t tell, it’s a surprise, you come, and you are gonna get the surprise, you gonna see it.”

Watch out for the arrivals of Shaggy, Diana King, Maxi Priest and Quino, the Lead Member from Big Mountain this week – and make sure to experience the hottest new festival on the international music circuit. Bringing all the flair, vibrancy, soul and energy of a global festival to Colombo, Cinnamon Life is set to present this revolutionary day-long event as a contemporary festival experience with a truly global feel.
