ECIPS Music Festival is living up to the professed supremacy the event will showcase with the first of two media launches held on August 3rd in Long Island.

Among the list of performers present at the event included Michigan, Kiprich, Genah, Maddadan, Mega Banton and Teflon.

The organizers have promised an event immaculately planned and executed and unlike anything you’ve seen in Roy Wilkins Park. The shows line up has already set the tone for a historic occasion as this is the first time Reggae, Dancehall, Latin, R&B, Hip Hop and Soca artiste will be live at one event on the Roy Wilkins stage.

The organizers highlighted that it was not easy to have this line up approved but it was imperative for them to create an event that people from all ethnicity and cultural backgrounds can appreciate and enjoy!
Akaline, Remy Ma, Akon, Freddie Jackson, Della Ghetto, Queen Ifrica, Denise Belfon, Elephant Man and Roy Ryan are some of the entertainers that will be on the stage on August 20. Media personality, Miss Kitty, will host the event and that means continuous vibes throughout the event will be no problem!
Gates open at 9:00 AM and the show begins at 11:00 AM; this the organizers said was done to give all artiste performing adequate time to interact and appease their fans.

A second launch for the event is slated to be held on Friday, August 18. This launch will be spearheaded by Akon who will not only perform but will be awarded for his humanitarian efforts. Akon has successfully provided electricity to over 600 million homes in Africa and is continuously generating smiles and enjoyment through his musical work. The organizers, for this reason, decided to honor him.
A part from a two step launch another interesting fact about ECIPS is a logistical feature that allows the entertainers to interact intimately with their fans on a cat walk leading out to the general admission. Concerts and festivals are normally criticized for the inability of the promoters to allow an ‘up close and personal’ performance for the artiste and patrons and this is what ECIPS organizers are changing.
The excitement I feel about this event is indescribable. I love Dancehall/Reggae but most importantly I love music and the integration of all these genres on one ‘Caribbean stage’, as Roy Wilkins Park is known for Caribbean events, is a thought that gives me chills.
