Promoters of the Spilligate’23 Festival have revealed that American rapper Rich Homie Quan is
set to open for headliner Burna Boy.
In an exclusive interview with The Bahama Journal, Beaumont Todd, marketing lead at
Signature Productions, announced the updates to the lineup, highlighting the inclusion of the
“Lifestyle” and “Type of Way” rapper. Signature Productions and Foreign Currency, managers
and promoters of the event, first teased the inclusion of “another big act” and have recently
finally made the reveal.
“Rich Homie Quan is actually going to be another one of the major performers that’s performing
right before Burna Boy comes on stage,” Todd said.
Promoters, Foreign Currency, have promised a quintessentially Bahamian festival, but expect the
addition of American rapper Rich Homie Quan to give Spilligate’23 a global feel.
Todd also revealed the inclusion of multiple International DJs with full sets. Critics have raised
the concerns of the lineup of global artist overshadowing the Bahamian artists, worried that the
benefits to the orange economy will disadvantage the showcasing of Bahamian culture.
At a press conference earlier this month, Fernerin Hanna, CEO of Signature Productions, tried to
ease these concerns and encouraged festival goers to look forward to the lineup of Bahamian
“It is my great pleasure to not just bring an event, but strengthen the orange economy here in The
Bahamas. This is very important to our tourism brand. Everything wrapped around this is going
to be Bahamian. This is a global experience so there is going to be a lot of persons around the
world streaming in. Not only are the performers going to be Bahamians as well, also we’re going
to have inserts of cultural aspects in the entire feel and experience,” Hanna said.
Beaumont Todd echoed this sentiment revealing there will be around eight to 10 Bahamian
artists on the performance set list. Todd also gave a heads up to festival-goers about the cost of
tickets as prices are set to change as the festival draws near.
“I’m encouraging persons to come out, have a good time, get your tickets. Tickets have just gone
up now to $200. The Early Bird is over. Get your tickets before you get to the gate and it goes up
again,” Todd said.
Although set times have yet to be released, marketing lead Beaumont Todd emphasized that the
festival is looking to run from 4 p.m. to 4 a.m. to ensure enough time for their many performers
and famous headliners.
The festival will take place on December 16.
