The much-anticipated Philly's Premiere Summer Reggae Festival was announced today and brings together a group of legendary reggae artists featuring headliners Jimmy Cliff and Beres Hammond. Scheduled for Sunday, June 10th at The Mann, the festival brings the Delaware Valley community together for an all-day family fun-filled event at the onset of the summer season.
"Reggae in The Park", appropriately named for its location in the heart of Fairmount Park, features two stages of music, DJ/Soundsystem (a live DJ set area at the top of the hill where the best of the local reggae DJ's will be spinning all day), arts and craft vendors, Global and Caribbean Food Village and much more. The main stage will feature reggae icons, Jimmy Cliff, Beres Hammond and Luciano along with U.S. based roots rock reggae bands, The Movement and Trevor Hall.
The Honourable Jimmy Cliff, the only living musician honored with Jamaica's Order of Merit and a 2010 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, with a legacy stretching back nearly 50 years headlines the event. Cliff still stands as one of the prime movers and continuing shapers of modern music. He remains a forceful voice of power and conscience, creating new music as vital and vibrant as ever.
