Additional Early Bird Artists Announced:
Epiphany recording artists Soul Syndicate will be returning to perform in Boonville this June. In addition to playing their top hits, the timeless band fronted by Fully Fullwood and Tony Chin will also be backing the living legend
Ken Boothe, along with one of Jamaica’s finest DJs Big Youth, his son
Tafari and a very special guest to be announced.
Many musical enthusiasts consider the mid to late 70s to be the zenith for reggae. During this era, vocal trios such as
The Mighty Diamonds and The Itals flourished, and SNWMF is pleased to have these artists come to nice up this year’s festival.
SNWMF has always been known for featuring vintage reggae from the 60s and early 70s, and this year will be no exception. Sunday will include one of Jamaica’s greatest rock-steady groups
The Melodians who rose to international fame when “Rivers of Babylon” was included on the soundtrack for “The Harder They Come.” Following their massively successful set in 2012,
Keith & Tex will perform again this year. After a stint with The Gaylads in the 60s,
B.B. Seaton went on to have a prosperous solo career becoming one of the premier songwriters in the history of Jamaica.
Monty Morris, who is widely recognized as one of ska’s founding performers, will be making his debut in Boonville this June.
SNWMF 2015 will also feature a good helping of Jamaica’s rising stars. Names such as Jesse Royal,
No-Maddz, Pentateuch and Hempress Sativa have all become synonymous with the recent ‘reggae revival’ movement that is taking place, and all of these artists will be appearing at our 22nd annual summer solstice gathering.
Born in Senegal, West Africa, Meta Dia will join forces with his band at SNWMF to create music that is warm and embodying, immensely addictive, and destined to forever change the dynamics of Reggae music as
Meta and The Cornerstones. The digital age of reggae saw a rise in the popularity of dancehall music. During this period,
Admiral Tibet stormed the sound systems and airwaves with a slew of hits while always maintaining a conscious message in keeping with his persona, and we are pleased that he will be making his debut at this year’s festival.
And don’t forget that last month we announced that the Grammy Nominated band
Thievery Corporation will be coming to SNWMF fresh on the heels of their bosa-nova infused “Saudade” album. For over 35 years, the Birmingham, England based band
Steel Pulse has remained true to their roots maintaining a fierce sense of integrity as they strive to get their message of love and justice across to all people. With their ancestry coming out of Hawaii, Samoa, Fiji and Tonga,
Common Kings will come forward with its laid-back but upbeat sound that is cross-cultural, mixing pop and rock music that is heavily inspired by soul and reggae. All that needs to be said about England’s
Gentleman’s Dub Club making their U.S. debut at SNWMF 2015 is “don’t miss this massive set”. And Scotland’s very own sound system
Mungo’s Hi Fi will have the dancehall skanking all night on Friday.
And remember that, with more nearly 5 months to go before our festival kicks off, there will be lots of additional artists to be announce in the coming weeks.
