Brief Sting History
In 1984, Isaiah Laing wanted to produce quality and affordable stage shows. He didn`t expect establishing an event that would play a very important role in the history of Jamaica’s reggae and dancehall music. This event would become known as “STING – The Greatest One Night Reggae Show On Earth”, a launching platform for many of Jamaica’s popular artistes.In its history STING has had out on stage over 500 local artistes, some of whom have become very famous, not only on the local scene, but internationally as well. Some of those artistes are: Buju Banton, Beenie Man, Lady Saw, Junior Reid, Mr. Vegas, Zebra, just to name a couple. International acts including Busta Rhymes and Foxy Brown, have also performed at STING. This major reggae event has not been limited to the shores of Jamaica.
