Headlining on Saturday, September 14 is Michael Franti and Spearhead. Michael Franti believes that there is a great battle taking place in the world today between cynicism and optimism, so he made his most recent album, Stay Human Vol. II, to remind himself and anyone else who’s listening, that there is still good in the world and that it is worth fighting for. The album has seen early critical acclaim and soared to the top of the charts including, #1 Billboard Independent Album Sales, #1 iTunes Top Albums Singer/Songwriter.

The songs on Stay Human Vol. II were inspired by Franti’s new self-directed documentary Stay Human, which has recently won array of awards on the film festival circuit. Stay Human features “heroic everyday people” whose stories have inspired the singer, activist and yoga practitioner during his travels around the world.

On Sunday, the legendary Don Carlos, the gentleman of reggae, takes the stage. This Jamaican reggae singer and composer began singing in 1973 as a member of Black Uhuru and sang alongside Garth Dennis and Derrick Simpson. In 1990 he re-united as the lead vocalist for a Black Uhuru album.
