Dancehall artiste Spice has been added to a list of entertainers who will headline the Groovin In The Park, which takes place June 25 at Roy Wilkins Park in Queens, New York.
The ‘Queen of Dancehall’ will share the stage with fellow Jamaican artistes Marion Hall, Tarrus Riley, Cham, Wayne Wonder, Frisco Kid, and soul singer Charlie “Uncle Charlie” Wilson.
Chris Roberts, founder of Groovin in the Park, said Spice’s appearance is a big deal for the show.
“After an absence from the market due to COVID, our team wanted to return by offering the best level of entertainment that money can buy. We are aware that serving up two queens on one throne — Spice, the hottest female dancehall artist on the planet, and Marion Hall, who is a phenomenal performer, would push the envelope off the charts and into the stratosphere,” said Roberts.
There will also be a four-continent Sound System Showcase featuring Dynamq from Africa and Bass Odyssey, who will represent South and North America.
The annual event was on a three-year hiatus, but is back in full force, ready to send musical vibrations throughout New York.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of ‘Groovin’, which was first held in 2011.
