What a magnificent festival!

I've been holding this in too long, this years festival, one of the best ever. Maybe i say that every year, but this year was special. After hearing the turmoil of friday's cancellations, i was prepared for some funkyness. Even with the heat, saturdays peformances were superlative. Didn't mind the repeats at all, it allowed me to actually see and record several of those bands. By the end of the weekend, i was exhausted, my reggae cup all runned over, my wife and i most satisfied.

Thanks Warren, and Gretchen, for a fantastic time. Thanks for letting me see Queen Makedah one more time. Thanks for Kingston Rudieska (pronounded rudie....ska). Thanks for Randy Valentine (blew me away), thanks for bringing back Max Romeo. Thanks for the Nomaddz. Thanks for Culture. Thanks for Cocoa Tea. Just thanks.....

Love that reggae!

Best new artist was Teddy Afro. Sounded like a young Alpha Blondy.

yeah westafari, I had no idea who Teddy afro was when the lineup was first announced. Then i did some research and realized he's a musical superstar in Ethiopia! Thanks to SNWMF for bringing him out, and yeah he does have that African reggae/Alpha Blondy vibe...
