He said there will also be performances from Fabian Marley and Billy Mystic and Mystic Revellers.
For the following Wednesday, he said the show will kick off at 2 p.m. with gospel artistes in 'Praises'. This will be followed by 'Voices' at the same location on the same day, with acts like Luciano and George Nooks doing songs of a spiritual nature.
On the third Wednesday, there will be 'Progression', which Campbell describes as an eclectic night with hip hop, rap and dancehall. The Reggae Wednesdays series will end with Reggae Gone Global, a mix of dance, song, fashion and music.
