Sting and Shaggy are announcing their One Fine Day music festival. The festival will take place in September at The Mann in Fairmount Park in Philadelphia, PA.
Headlining the main stage at TD Pavilion at The Mann, Sting and Shaggy will perform their biggest hits together. Both singers will collaborate on “Every Breath You Take,” “Englishman In New York,” “Message In A Bottle,” “It Wasn’t Me,” “Boombastic,” “Angel,” and many more. The One Fine Day performance in Philadelphia is the only time the USA where Sting and Shaggy will perform together. Both are managed by Cherrytree Music Company CEO Martin Kierszenbaum.
“I love how Shaggy and I effortlessly push each other to the creative edges,” adds Sting about the upcoming performance. “After having made the 44/876 album together and recording an album of Frank Sinatra covers in a reggae style, a day of hits and musical adventures in one of our favorite cities seemed like the next illogical step!”
“Sting is a catalyst for musical curiosity,” says Shaggy. “When we collaborate, we combine our musical tastes, individual cultures and a sense of wonder. We wanted to invite some of our favorite musicians to gather in real time and share that very vibe at ‘One Fine Day.'”
Headlining the Skyline Stage at the Mann for One Fine Day will be two-time Grammy Award-winning Thundercat the funky bassist known for collaborating with Kendrick Lamar, Erykah Badu and Mac Miller. Additional performances from Koffee, Tank and the Bangas, Philly’s own G. Love & Special Sauce, Kes, Flor de Toloache, and French/Italian sensation Giordana Angi all happening within the backdrop of Fairmount Park.
