THE 18th staging of GT Taylor's Reggae Christmas Extravaganza takes place at Luana Sports Complex in St Elizabeth on Christmas Day.

Rygin King is slated to be the headliner.

Taylor, event promoter, said he would be tweaking the show to heighten the experience.

“We have cut the number of artistes down so that the patrons will get a longer performance from their favourite artistes. There will be no more than 25 acts on a show; these days are done,” he said.

“We have been focusing on performance over the past few years — quality not quantity. We are going to have a two-hour slot sound system juggling in the morning before the main acts like Rygin King perform to close the show,” said Taylor.

Chromatic Live, Bass Odyssey, Digital Chris are part of the sound system line-up.

Taylor first staged 'Extravaganza' in 2000 at Hendrix Wharf in Black River, St Elizabeth. It has now become a staple on the dancehall calendar.

“Arrangements are in place to accommodate as many vehicles as possible inside the venue so that patrons can sit in their vehicles and watch the show. The hotels love this concept as we have created an area, with special security arrangements, where tourists can sit in a bus and enjoy the show,” he said.
