Rick Ross to headline NEW YORKER FRESH ISLAND
May 9, 2014
Croatian NEW YORKER FRESH ISLAND FESTIVAL is proud to announce a another spectacular headliner for this summer’s event at Zrće beach as rap superstar RICK ROSS - who is, by his colleagues such as Dr.Dre, Jay-Z, P. Diddy and Kanye West, considered the successor to hip hop icon Notorious B.I.G. – joins the already illustrious line up of DMX, Pusha T, Redman and Method Man.
RICK ROSS aka William Leonard Roberts is used to the finer things in life: the prestigious champagne "Belaire Rose" that he endorses, as well as hot women, ultimate luxury cars, villas and art. NEW YORKER FRESH ISLAND FESTIVAL will make sure his visit to Croatia is no disappointment, from the moment he steps off his private plane from Miami!
NEW YORKER FRESH ISLAND FESTIVAL takes place from 23rd to 25th July and as well as the incredible headliners sees 40 international performers take to the stages including some of Europe's biggest DJ 's crews.
As a result of record ticket sales Festival organizers are predicting in excess of 20,000 fans from all around the world to attend this unique festival that takes place on the stages of adjacent beach clubs Papaya and Aquarius, and tickets are almost sold out.
However, there is a possibility that NEW YORKER FRESH ISLAND FESTIVAL might be able to expand and take over the whole beach as the organisers are in discussions regarding the construction of a large "Big Beach" stage so that all the fans can freely and safely enjoy this three-day event, which global media are now proclaiming to be the most exceptional hip hop festival in the world.
RICK ROSS 's debut on the music scene led him to the first multimillion contract signed personally by hip hop mogul Jay – Z, then the Chairman of Def Jam Records. Thanks to his VIP image and charisma he is nicknamed "Big Boss", but due to his distinctive rough vocal he is also called "Rap Sinatra". With studio albums Trilla, Deeper Then Rap, Teflon Don, God Forgives I Do not and Mastermind he reached the top of the world charts including the Billboard 200. His musical expression is largely influenced by the late legend Notorious B.I.G., and during his career he worked with artists such as Drake, Jay-Z, John Legend, Kanye West, Puff Daddy, Usher, Mary J. Blige, Dr. Dre, Outkast and many others. MTV crowned him the Hottest MCs In The Game, The Source magazine declared him the person of the year, and he earned a nomination for a BET Adward best male hip hop artist, all of which suggest that the media really adore Rick Ross.
This globally popular performer will, as the main headliners, open the third edition of the New Yorker FRESH ISLAND FESTIVAL which will take place from July 23rd to 25th on over five stages, with several Boat Parties and after beach parties, a dance camp, etc.
NEW YORKER Fresh Island as the only European hip-hop festival on the beach, is proud to announce the second International Dance Camp "Adria Dance Camp" organized in association with the famous dance group Atomic Dance Factory that brings together the biggest dance stars such as - Les Twins (choreographers and dancers who work with Beyonce), Mike Song (J.Lopez, Step Up 5) and Tight Eyez, ElRock Hodzic and many other recognized choreographers.
