The second staging of Sun City Radio Station's Portmore Music Festival will be held on December 29 at the UDC Car Park in Portmore, St Catherine.

A wide variety of top Jamaican artistes along with some upcoming acts are scheduled to perform at the event which is in its second staging.

The event was launched Wednesday evening at the recently-opened Aliv Night Club in Naggo Head, Portmore with several of the acts scheduled for the show, including former Shocking Vibes star Frisco Kid, giving a sample of what to expect.

Come December 29 at the Portmore Music Festival, however, among those who will grace the stage are Bounty Killer, Wayne Wonder, Cocoa Tea, I-Wayne, I-Octane, Tarrus Riley, Frisco Kid, Tommy Lee Sparta, Turbulence, Ibamahr, Mr Easy, Razon B, Jah Mason, Exco Levi and Ikaya, and Stacious.

Secondary performances will come from the likes of Ras Ajai, Tom Laing, Nateesha Stream, Ffurious, Jameik King, Khalia, Danni-I and Di Ruption.

The show is slated to begin at 9:00 pm with the gates opening three hours earlier, at the UDC Car Park, which is situated across the road from the Portmore Mall.

Proceeds from the show will go to Mother's In Crisis non-government charity organisation.

According to Chief Executive Officer of Sun City Radio, Steve Billings, December 29 will now be a fixed date for Portmore Music Festival and the hope is to use the show to become more involved in the community, which the media entity serves.

Billings said, the UDC Car Park was selected because of its central location in Portmore. Mother's In Crisis is looking to empower women by teaching them skills, and the Portmore Music Festival will assist in that regard.

Representatives from some of the sponsors, including Loop News, were also present.
