The parish of Manchester is bracing for the annual super fiesta, Bembe Inna Bellefield, which will be held at the Kirkvine Sports Complex on July 12th.

The annual dancehall event has become a mainstay in Central Manchester because of its guaranteed feel-good vibes and massive crowd support.

"The event was held the first time in 2008 in the community of Bellefield itself, however, it soon outgrew the venue, the Kirkvine Sports Complex in 2010, and now it is in its fourth year in Kirkvine," promoter Andrew 'Edgie' Williams said.

The event got its jumpstart using the popularity of the 'Bembe' name.

"I have a long term relationship with the owners of the Bembe name. They registered the name in 2007 and I licensed the use of it in 2008, and we have a long term relationship authorizing me to use the name. This event is huge. People fly in, people book their flights, every year, we lock down the whole of Central Manchester, people mark down this date on their calendar every year for a guaranteed good time."

A relentless and innovative promoter, Williams retooled the event last year when he used dancehall artistes on the billing for the first time booking marquis artistes Bounty Killer and Sizzla.

"It was very successful, we had a huge turnout, we got tremendous support from the Blue Mountain, Daveton, Banana Ground, Williamsfield and Coffee Grove areas. It was incident free, we put adequate security in place and it went off smoothly," he said .

This year, 'Bembe in Bellefield' will features Capleton, Gage and Biggaton. Selectors Firelinks, DJ Kentucky, Reptile Bling and Mas Rasb will spin music for the masses while Willard and Reggae Rogers will handle emceeing duties. "Right now, mi just want to big up the people of Bellefield who helped make this one of the biggest dancehall events in the history of central Manchester, ah dem start it and every year, dem support it, so nuff respect," Williams said.
