SATURDAY JUNE 22 - KINSMEN PARK
Joining them is multi-Grammy award winning artist Shaggy; who is by all accounts the true definition of a renaissance man, besides his continuing success in reggae/dancehall music and its influence on pop music worldwide, Shaggy is a fierce businessman, and humble philanthropist. The Jamaican-Born American Reggae fusion singer is best known for his singles “Boombastic,” “It Wasn’t Me,” and “Angel.”
Also on the bill is hip-hop’s ‘King of the South’, Ludacris. The popular singer and actor (Crash, Hustle and Flow, 2 Fast 2 Furious) helped bring raunchy humor back to rap with hits like “Roll Out,” “Stand Up” and “What’s Your Fantasy.” Between 2000 and 2006, he sold more than 15 million records.
Bringing her soulful R&B vibe with smash hits like “Foolish” & “Rock Wit U” to the afternoon of Soundtrack is Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter, actor and author Ashanti. With all of her amazing success, Ashanti has never lost sign of who she is and how important it is to give back to the community; she has been very active supporting a large list of charities and good causes.
With the gates to the festival opening at 1:00pm, the rest of the day will be filled out with some classic favorites; Maestro Fresh Wes, Supersonic (Oasis Tribute), Edmonton’s own The Fronts & Paul Woida. Harman B is back spinning all day between sets and legendary former Much Music VJ Master T returns as the festival’s Master of Ceremonies.
