World Bash, a musical extravaganza set to take place at Amazura in Queens, New York on Friday, November 24, is gearing up to bid farewell to world champion sound Mighty Crown in a fittingly grand manner this Thanksgiving weekend.

Produced by Irish and Chin, renowned presenters of Jamaican music and culture, World Bash is poised to showcase the ‘biggest and baddest sound systems’ in the world. The event, a supercharged sound system stage show and concert, marks an expansion of Irish and Chin’s famed World Clash brand, sans the clash.

The star-studded line-up includes some of the most significant players in the sound system industry, each having played an integral role in the Mighty Crown story. Sound systems such as Soul Supreme, Bass Odyssey, Kilimanjaro, David Rodigan, Dynamq, Tony Matterhorn, Pink Panther, LP International, Bodyguard, Metromedia, and, of course, Mighty Crown are set to grace the stage at Amazura.

World Bash is not just a concert; it’s a celebration of sound culture. According to Garfield “Chin” Bourne of Irish and Chin, the event is envisioned to be 60 per cent festive and 40 per cent warrish, delivering unparalleled stage show vibes. With a mix of classic anthems and good music, the night promises to be a festive affair for dubplate lovers and champagne spillers alike.

Fans have been buzzing with excitement since September, eagerly anticipating the rare gathering of these elite sound systems on one stage. The fact that these iconic sounds have not shared a stage together in ages adds to the special nature of the event.

“With everyone talking, it gives me a good feeling about ‘World Bash.’ The fact that people are excited means there is still hope for sound culture and our brand,” said Chin Bourne, reflecting on the positive reception the event has garnered.

The grand finale of Mighty Crown’s “The Final Round Tour,” World Bash serves as the ultimate chapter in the sound’s illustrious 30-year career. Whether you’re a dedicated dubplate enthusiast or someone who simply enjoys the vibes of Reggae and Dancehall culture, World Bash is set to be a night to remember, celebrating the legacy of Mighty Crown and the vibrant sound system culture that continues to captivate audiences worldwide.
