I have a newfound respect for this festival and it’s attendees. Some people like to criticize this show, but I bet money they have not been back lately. Theres a Roots and Family vibe that wasn’t there before.

Yes, it’s pretty much the same line up for many of these types of festivals and it’s getting old but at least there’s a few bands that sound appealing

old heads will never be satisfied, especially when you're still drawing from that endless pool of vintage bangers.

I'd love to see Keznamdi pass through, haven't seen him live before. I saw he just toured through Colorado with Collie Buddz. He's a strong artist, still a bit unknown to some. I would love to see him break free of any association with these Cali artists, and get some presence with the massive out there. Wacha say, do you all rate Keznamdi?

Yes I rate Keznamdi but this is the thing... break from these artists? Why on earth would you want to do that if you are him? you get exposed to way more people and the only people who think you are somehow tainted by it think anyone who has commercial success is tainted. His music isn't like many of the so called Cali Artists to begin with so I don't think anyone sees a danger of him changing his sound

True, I hear ya on that. He is in a group that is exposing him to the younger, college scene, and will gain a wide base of fans. However, I would love to see him travel through Santa Cruz, Marin, Sonoma, Mendo, hit Oregon, and do shows for more of the reggae fan base that respect and love the foundation.

I would say Keznamdi is one of the main reasons I’m going. I usually skip the reggae -rock and just catch the acts that interest me. There’s ins and outs no problem.
I wouldn’t necessarily say this crowd is a college crowd- maybe 10 years ago but all those people grew up and now they are 32 not 22. I been going for the past several years, has anyone been back lately?

I saw Keznamdi for the third time when he came thru with Collie Buddz not too long ago in So Hum. Keznamdi stole the show. He just killed it! Collie was just boring after that........ posted some photos in my instagram..eyeofagnes

For the record, Keznamdi is not directly associated with Cali artists. He is from Jamaica, he is Kelissa's brother and their parents were the leaders of a reggae band called Chakula.

Keznamdi was better than I expected when I saw him with Collie Buddz. But to say CB was "just boring after that" was not even close to my experience. They both made for a great show.
