Mighty Crown has been celebrating their epic 25th anniversary through out the year. Commemorations reached an all time high in May when the stellar sound system brought the young Reggae star Chronixx to Japan for his very first time to perform on their Anniversary tour! It was phenomenal to say the least. Mighty Crown is without question one of the industry’s most commercially successful sound systems, making their mark on the world through performances and tours, sound clash, music production, fashion and much more!

Beenie Man has reigned as the “King of the Dancehall” for decades, offering the world a groundbreaking catalogue of music, high energy entertainment, explosive performances and just all out exhibition of Dancehall music and culture. The top artist made the headlines recently after contracting the Zika virus. Resulting in hospitalization, Beenie Man was forced to cancel performances. Clearly, he is well on the road to recovery and overjoyed to celebrate with Mighty Crown and thrill his scores of fans in Japan once again!
