Through our partnership we are given the opportunity to reach out to 50,000 people. It is the number one dancehall show in the country. It demands from its patron’s endurance and attentiveness for the over 12 hours of exciting entertainment the event provides. What better way to keep our guests refueled and reenergized than with Raptor Energy drink.”
