Best of the Best 2013 Festival Guide, From Beenie Man to Beres Hammond
JW & Blaze
Speaking of Major Lazer, a highlight of Diplo and crew's Ultra Music Festival sets this year was a brief soca segment that had ravers at Bayfront Park doing the side-to-side Trinidadian dance known as "palancing." At Best of the Best, JW & Blaze, the artists whose song "Palance" set off the craze (and said ravers) will be on hand to perform it live.
Best of the Best is always good for bringing out dancehall stars no one's heard from in a while. The elusive Supercat headlined in 2008 while 2011's edition saw the return of Shabba Ranks. This year's where'd-they-find-him act is Mad Cobra, best known for 1992's crossover hit "Flex."
