The Orlando Caribbean Festival (O.C.F.), one of the most high-profile cultural festival in Central Florida, has a reputation for bringing out in big Afro & Caribbean artists from different islands ALL on ONE stage, and this year will be no exception. Exactly one month away, the 9th annual Spring Break edition returns on Saturday, March 14th, 2020 at the Camping World Stadium, a new and larger location in the heart of the city in the Tinker Fields near Downtown Orlando.
Elephant Man, the international award-winning dancehall reggae artist, was initially announced as one of the headliners but was removed due to unexpected delay to his travel paperwork with the recent US immigration policy and procedures. Elephant Man was forced to cancel all his February, March & April performances in the United States. The Orlando Caribbean Festival has now added the Jamaican Reggae and dancehall singer, Charly Black, hitmaker of “Party Animal”. With his success and fame, Charly Black is considered the World’s “ Party Animal ultimate Entertainer” his footsteps remain trodden with humility and a graceful sense of warmth in the dancehall community.
