Last night we headed down to the National Stadium for a Major Lazer show. The truth is I am old and don’t fully understand or know much about these guys, but I do know it was a good show. It pulled a relatively young crowd (mostly university students) but it was well-attended. Major Lazer has worked a lot with Jamaican artists and has a strong following here and the crowd seemed to respond well.
The only surprise was the fact that it ended promptly at 2am, as per the city of Kingston’s noise by-law. Lately, the cops have to literally come on stage to unplug instruments and microphones to stop the entertainment in accordance with the by-laws, because apparently people have been complaining about noise.
And of course, the performers made sure to thank the sponsors, Red Stripe, Pepsi, etc., for their generous sponsorship, which meant “all-inclusive” drinks flowing all night. The cops were also out in full force, mingling with the crowd, which stayed peaceful. Enjoy your day!
