Dream WKND NYC 2024-the annual Caribbean’s Largest music festival wrapped up its second staging in the vibrant city of New York, leaving an indelible mark on the city’s Caribbean cultural and musical landscape. Held on June 29-30, this year’s festival was a resounding success, drawing thousands of ‘Dreamers’ from across the tri-state area delivering two unforgettable nights of music, dance, and cultural celebration.

Night One: ‘World Dance Best Of The 90s’ at Club Musica Manhattan
The festival at Club Musica on Saturday, June 29, kicked off with an explosive start despite
the inclement weather. Hosted by Jamaican dancehall queen Spice, the ‘World Dance Best of
the 90s’ event captivated the audience with her dynamic performance and infectious energy.
Spice performed her hits like ‘So Mi Like It’ and premiered her new track “Round & Round”

cowboy hats to fans participating in the “Round n Round” challenge, and meet & greets. DJs
Kevin Crown, Massive B, and Platinum Kids kept the energy high with a mix of dancehall, soca,
hip-hop, alternative, and afrobeats hits.

The celebration continued again despite the hard rainfall during the day which delayed us a bit,
on Sunday, June 30 at DAYDREAMS all white summer soiree held at the beautiful outdoor
venue, Industry city- Brooklyn, making it the climax of the weekend. Dreamers were dressed to

service and a stellar lineup of DJs such as: DJ Fade The Future from Hot97, who recently came
