Bounty Killer and Tommy Lee to work together at Long Beach

Top-flight dancehall deejay Tommy Lee Sparta and the 2012 Deejay of the Year Bounty Killer are set to share stage at Spring Break 2013 in Negril, this, the first occasion since their rather short musical rivalry last year.

The promoter of the event, Chin, has also billed a host of other top acts for spring breakers in Negril come March 30, inside Long Bay Beach.

These include headliner Sizzla, I-Octane, KipRich, Flippa Moggler, Major Mackerel alongside veterans Major Cat, Tony Tuff and Johnie P.

"We are excited that Spring Break Negril will be the first time since the 'throw word' saga, that a show will accommodate both Tommy Lee Sparta and Bounty Killer to share a venue and stage for the first time since late 2012", said Chin, the main promoter for the event.

According to him, this will impact the event positively.

Spring Break Negril is in its 14th staging and the organisers believe this year patrons will have their hands full while enjoying the day and night package.

Chin said, "This year is an all-day, all-night experience ... Six-a-side football competition with Sizzla and The Judgement Yard massive ... Some other celebrities will compete as well."

Tommy Lee Sparta will make his second Spring Break Negril appearance and he promises to ignite the Long Bay Beach stage and put on a stellar show for his Spartan Angels.

He told The WEEKEND STAR, "Whole heap a artiste deh pon de show and me a come please my fans. I get lots of tweets and messages online from people looking forward to seeing me there. Suh it's all about the music and about the fans that support me. Dat mean seh Negril Spring Break is a show I cannot afford to miss".

His manager Heavy D said, "We believe in the development of dancehall music and put that first. It has nothing to do with who is on the bill, we don't care who else is on the line-up. Whatever it takes to make the music grow, we make it work".

Spring Break Negril is usually held earlier in March, however, this year, it was pushed back until later in the month as the organisers are of the view that in reality, all of March is Spring Break.

Chin said, "We pushed it back this year because spring break is March entirely ... this year, Easter falls in March (month end) and so it's gonna be a long weekend. Patrons will treat it like a weekend get-a-way, especially for who wants to leave Kingston."

Spring Break Negril pulls thousands of patrons to the North Coast and the promoter sought to explain the pull factor.

According to Chin, "People love and anticipate Spring Break over the years because it's a getaway experience to behold in Negril ... The white sand beaches, good music, great food and great entertainment ... People party night and day, bathsuits for the day and dress by night. It's the only day and night event in Negril"
