/// For the second year in a row, WKCR’s Eastern Standard Time and the Sound Liberation Front will team up to bring the unique vibes of the Jaimaican Sound System to iconic Coney Island.
This year, the party will move to a new location at W 19th Street and will take place directly on the beach. The event is absolutely FREE so make sure you bring the entire Family. There will be plenty of activities to keep you busy around the dancefloor (Volleyball, soccer...)
Expect an all-star lineup of top ranking selectors and guest vocalists curated by Carter Van Pelt from WCKR. Some notable talents who spontaneously performed at previous editions of the event include dancehall legends Johnny Osbourne, Carlton Livingston, Peter Ranks, Mikey Jarrett, seminal NYC sound system Sir Tommy's and legendary record producer Clive Chin.
Don't forget the sunscreen, beach towels and long chairs and come enjoy the sun to the perfect soundtrack of the season. ///
