Heading into it’s 39th year, the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta is now an unmissable event in the global sailing calendar. Four thrilling days of racing blend seamlessly into four nights of rip-roaring parties on the Caribbean island. The latest unmissable artist announcement is the music industry’s official hype man – Fatman Scoop, who will perform on Saturday 2nd March.

St. Maarten Heineken Regatta Production Director, John Leone, comments, “The 39th St. Maarten Heineken Regatta has a bumper racing schedule and we are committed to delivering even more fun with our parties this year! Fatman Scoop aka The Life of the Party is a perfect fit and we’re sure his booming voice, catchy hooks and electrifying energy will get everyone up on the dancefloor. We’ll see you there!”

“You got a 50 dollar bill get ya hands up”, “Single ladies I can’t hear ya’ll”, “Single ladies make noise!” These are some of Fatman Scoop’s hooks we all know and sing along to. He’s notorious for shouting his name and requesting that you do whatever he tells you… so put your hands up! You’ve heard Scoop’s rambunctious baritone hyping a track or appearing in video cameos for P.Diddy, 50 Cent, or David Guetta, to name a few.

Fatman Scoop can be heard on the records of award winning producers or artists such as Missy Elliot, Timbaland, Mariah Carey, Busta Rhymes, Sean Paul, Elephant Man, the Ying Yang Twins, Faith Evans, Bob Sinclair, Pitbull and many more. In 2005, Scoop took home the Grammy Award for Best Short Form Music Video for “Lose Control”, his collaboration with Missy Elliott and Ciara. He has even recorded music for blockbuster films including, “You Got Served” and “Save the Last Dance” as well as creating original songs and recording commercials for brands such as Mountain Dew, Reebok, Nike and Bombay Sapphire.

With more than 90 boat entries already confirmed so far and a legendary party lineup, the event is sure to be a hit – both on the water and on land. Find out more about the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta, St. Maarten and island life here: www.heinekenregatta.com.

About St Maarten Heineken Regatta
Now in its 39th year, the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta is four days of world-class racing starting on 28th February until the 3rd March 2019. Set in the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean, sailing is powered by the cooling northeast trade winds and run by an experienced and friendly race team. Over the four days, thousands of sailors from over 35 countries come to compete in world-class racing.

The St. Maarten Heineken Regatta is as famous for its parties as it is for its racing. Over four nights, some of the world’s top artists take to the stage and ensure that each day of racing ends with a bang, and the festivities continue long into the night. Acts from previous years include Black Eyed Peas, Akon, Wyclef Jean and Kool & The Gang.
