Let's get together?
March 23, 2004 03:18PM
I noticed this topic in some other topics so I figured it should have it's own. It's funny that it came up. Sis Adaria and I were just talking recently about how it would be cool if everybody on the board had a way of meeting each other at the festival if they wanted too. I'd like to get to know some of you and extend my reggae circle. Someone suggested communicating through walkie talkies at least initially so that we can find a place to meet. I'm down with that. I have 4 of my own. It works for those that have access to them, but there should probably be another method of contact for others. Let's discuss it and figure something out. Prince, forwardzion, pale ryder, napabink you guys already have this thing going so chime in when you want to. There should be a place where we can come together and reason about reggae and tings or blaze the chalewa.

Oops sorry about the chalewa comment Daniel.

I here ya, well we need to come up with a channel and sub-channel that we agree on, that will be our contact basis. Like channel 9 sub channel 13. What do you think?
Re: Let's get together?
March 23, 2004 04:47PM
walkie talkies??? how about a certain time (for instance 4:20) at a certain place (the big open area stage left)??

Let's meet on Friday @ 4:20 stage left, if you can't make it then, we can keep in contact all weekend with the walkie talkies. Channel 9 sub, channel 13. This seems like a good plan. Walkie talkies are a good way to get together at our campsites as well. You light the fire I'll cook the breakfast. Sight?

March 24, 2004 08:34AM
Last year when we all get up it was on Saturday at the Earth Flag. I think it worked out pretty well because it was easy to find. We should do something like that again! I think walkie talkies would be harder (at least for me becuase I dont own one).
Re: Let's get together?
March 24, 2004 09:07AM
YES!!!! I Can not wait to meet all of you, and the funny thing is- ive probibly of walked right by most of you befor and never new it.

We should definitly make a spot, Walkie talkie station and I Will be wearing a white T-shirt with my name across it in big letter's, Imthinkin Front side ill say KEVIN and back will say Prince - or PKW. We should make a spot outside of the gates!
Does everyone know where the front gates are? We should meat at a time by the gates or next to one of those wooden post that have the big rope going from post to post.
I Told KingCaliWolf about meating all of you, He shouted with joy- and he really would like to meat all of you too.
Im looking forword to this more than ever!!!!!!!!!!

Prince, since Stevo is in Mexico, I will take the opportunity to correct your spelling. Meat= The flesh of living organisms, or what we call rookie pitchers in baseball, and Meet= To arrange a kind of gathering between two or more people.........
Re: Let's get together?
March 24, 2004 06:59PM
We all know that spelling isn't one of Princes strong points, but let's lay off of him a little, and enjoy meaning of his posts. For a terrible speller he sure has some intelligent things to say. He could just copy and paste from Word after spellchecking but he doesn't. So if it doesn't bother him don't let it bother you. I guess you could say he's keeping it real.
Re: Let's-get-together-and-feel-all-write!
March 25, 2004 09:47AM
Yes my spelling is crap but my mind is not- If you chose to dwell on the "Spell"
Than go for it, auh... You guys don't always have to correct me if you dont want to. Just a suggestion

Hell im just keeping it real, as real as I am

I know on the reggae on the river message board we talked with eachother and decided to get t-shirts together that we could sport to find eachother in + blaze the chalwa - oops did I say that? didn't mean to. Anyways, we could have some unique design on it of somesort with SNWMF on the back, + your name and what not. Just a suggestion winking smiley

I'm listening. The suggestions so far have been good. But instead of adding another, I will avoid confusion, and continue to watch. And I will do my best to link with all who wish to link.

PKdub-It's always a blast being able to usher in some new comers. Your freinds will never forget it. I can remember going to the first couple of the Sierra festivals and just being totally sold. Anticipating the following year before the present one was even over. Much love.

Re: Let's get together?

My man the last thing I want to hear at this festival is my cell phone or anyone elses ringing. Leave them at home. I know walkie-talkies are no better, but they seem to have a use at festivals and don't cost anything to use. Just my two cents.

Re: Let's get together?
June 08, 2004 09:36PM
Well, I would like to know what we are doing for sure... I guess i must buy a walkie talkie... channel 9 sub 13 eh? Will and walkie talkie do, or is there a certain type i need to get. let me know... i know you dont want to hear cell phones a ringing, but we can call eachother before the music starts or anything... I dont know, I will call you DJ Rasta!! Okay, so i think telling other what we will wear pn that day might be a good idea, but for me i have not thought about my clothes for the trip... maybe the name tag thing would prove itself to be useful... but then again how easy will it be to see a little "hello my name is" amongst the massive crowd.

Re: Let's get together?

Don't waste too much energy on trying to figure out how we'll get together. If it's meant to happen it will. Don't go out and buy a walkie-talkie just for the fest. Use whatever means you have, cell phone, walkie-talkie, nametag, at a booth, down to the left of the stage, stumbling onto my tent at 4AM ala ROTR, choice of clothes, tattoos on backs, hats or other identifying features. I'll have my walkie-talkie and if I happen to get hit up then right on. I'll probably go out looking for some of you at some point, but I'm focused on the music. If you see a big white guy standing 6 feet tall and about 280 lbs. with a goatee and a shaved head or a straw hat on with some brown beads around it and some really red eyes, that's me. I don't know what I'll be wearing, except for the hat, until I know how hot it will be. You may be lucky and get a free special edible from me and you'll know that's me too.

One question - where did Jahmeek go? I'm starting to miss him.

I too miss the meekster - hopefully he is blazing a trail up from AZ!

Ok - I'm not the shy one - my cell is 530-521-3962 - I'll have it on after camp setup, and much of the day Sat. If I see guys walking around with walkie talkies - I'll yell a likkle bit louder...

Okay, all you cell phoners and walkie-talkie folks can meet up where and when you want to, but for all the others, here are 3 times and places where you can find me:

MEET-UP #1:
When: Friday night 6:45-The start of Ikahba's set
Where: Village stage - just to the left of the stage (when looking forward)

MEET-UP#2:
When: Saturday afternoon 3:30-The start of Midnite's set
Where: Valley stage - just to the right of the stage (when looking forward)

MEET-UP#3:
When: Sunday afternoon 2:45-The start of Winston Jarrett's set
Where: Village stage - just to the left of the stage (when looking forward)

From this, you should be able to figure out the Stage and starting time for at least 3 of the artists.......

Hey everyone,
If we do meet up, will we be going by our board names. "Hello FowardZion, it's Zana from the board". "Hi Dubguy!"
Just a thought. Zana is almost my real name. Take the Z off and voila!

Wow, so excited... 9 Days to go!!! Yeah... my name is not "J" it is "Jacquie" but then again, "Jacquie" is a short version of my middle name. Hmmm, I am not trying to hide form all of you or anything, it is just that my first name is weird looking, and everyone garunteed would mis-pronounce it, but many people call me Jacquie, so when I hear that name, I turn around... so no worries. I just might not look over if I hear "Hey J," I probably wont notice it... but I will notice "Hey Jacquie." Thanks all

If you cant call out you cany text either. just a little help from your local wirelss carrier. you all seem real chill, and although i have never been to any of these events i sure am looking forward to this one, and i hope to meet many memorable people over the weekend. do you all usually try to hook up at shows?
Re: Let's get together?
June 09, 2004 02:20PM
Thanks Rachelle. U r in for a treat. Can't even explain the vibes and people. Every sort of person imaginable is there. This is the first time I have ever been on a message board. U will meet people that u will hook up with time and again just by being there. Have a blessed journey.
Re: Let's get together?

I got a great idea for meeting up easy, we will meet up at

the start of the band Midnite, Saturday, 3:30 pm at the front of the

VALLEY Stage on the left side when looking forward. I will be wearing

a security shirt from the 2002 show. This will make it real easy to meet

up. Looking forward to meeting eveyone, see you in nine!!

last act: spear

third last: i vibes
fourth last: midnite

i guess that would place them around 3:30 or so...just seems kind of early to me.

Re: Let's get together?

My info tells me on Sat.

Fully - 11:50AM
Mighty Diamonds - 12:30
Alton Ellis - 1:40
Don Carlos - 3:00
I-Vibes - 5:00
Midnite - 6:30
Gentlemen - 8:20
Burning Spear - 10:15

All on the valley stage. This was an unofficial schedule and was subject to change and not complete so don't quote me on this. Everything was tentative. I thinnk the order is pretty set, just not the times. Hope it helps to give you an idea of what's up. This lineup is just sick if it sticks. No time for me to meet anyone on Saturday if it's like this.
Re: Let's get together?

I got a direct source saying 3:30 pm Midnite , someone who works

for the venue. Anythings possible though. Much luv

Wait a min now
how many stages r there?
I was under the impression that each stage played a certain style of music.
U all have me NOW thinking that I will be running all over the place.
I only want to experience REGGAE and REGGAE only.
Nothing against world and other styles.

Re: Let's get together?
June 10, 2004 09:46AM
yeah dj rasta i you will be running back and forth since they have reggae on both stages at times. too bad but its the only way to get all the performers on stage. personally - i would prefer to see fewer performers with reggae only on the big stage so i don't miss anyone. with all the names (especially on saturday) there will be someone who i won't get to see so, to me, they might as well not be there.
Re: Let's get together?
June 10, 2004 09:57AM
I hear you dirtweed and DJ Rasta, but you are not the only ones coming to this festival.

There are many people who are looking forward to seeing artists like Femi. If you are that concerned about seeing ONLY reggae, i would suggest you put your bodies on the village stage on Friday and on the valley stage on Saturday. There, you will see pure reggae on both days, and you won't miss any of the names on saturday. Sunday, will be a little trickier, what with the "For The Love Of It" artists (Beres, Marcia, Maxi and Iley) in the valley and the other reggae artists on the village stage. There may be some 'conflicts' on Sunday, but they shouldn't be too bad (ie. Maxi or Rocker T).

Hey fourtwenty and Mosis: Since you guys have all this 'direct source' and inside info, why not send it along so that I can post the times already.
Re: Let's get together?
June 10, 2004 10:12AM



Unfortunately, I had to call a security buddy on the phone, he also

works for the venue itself. He could only give info about artists who

are scheduled for sat. He told Midnite would be at the valley stage

at 3:30pm sat., Brning spear will be playing last that night, Izzy vibes

right before both at the Valley stage(main stage). I wish I had more

info, but currently that's all I got. Peace and Inity to all

i think daniel is being sarcastic. daniel knows whats up, someone who "works for the venue" almost by definition does not. now maybe if they "work for the festival" (er...like daniel) that would be different. when daniel gets the real word, im sure we will be the first to know.

Re: Let's get together?
June 10, 2004 11:08AM
D, what you have to understand, is that we are loosing Reggae greats to "THE MOST HIGH" on it seems a regular basis, and at the rate that they are going, who knows when we may get another opportunity to experience them again...if ever. Once they are gone...they are gone!!! Unlike most of you, there are several artists that I have never seen that will be at the fest this year. I understand that I am only one person compared to the thousands that will be attending the fest to see other styles. Remember this, these guys are icons to us reggae lovers and their message has long gone passed. They will NEVER be replaced. I would like to propose a fest of nothing but the legends for next year. Johnny Clarke/Rod Taylor/Bunny Wailer/Alton Ellis/Linval Thompson/Jimmy Cliff/ Culture/Gladiators/Ivibes/Mighty Diamonds/Abyssinnians/Meditations/Sugar Minott/Horace Andy/ I think you get the point...I know that'S EASIER SAID THAN DONE...BUT imagine how many people would show up then? In my humble opinion, the artists mentioned changed the world and should take center stage to everyone else.Rastafari
Re: Let's get together?
June 10, 2004 11:36AM
Well DJ, for me Burning Spear/Midnite/Ivibes/Don Carlos/The Mighty Diamonds/Alton Ellis/LInval Thompson/Ras Michael/Winston Jarrett/Clinton Fearon/Dezarie/Ikahba/Beres & Marcia WILL take center stage for the entire weekend. The other artists are there for other atendees whose tastes may be different.

I agree that a lineup of just the artists you mentioned would be totally killer, but suspect that the number of people who would attend such a festival would be substantially LESS than the number that currently attend SNWMF. That's because: 1) 'roots legend lovers' have already been coming to SNWMF for years now; and 2) people like Maxi Priest, Femi and Michael Franti attract lots of people who would not otherwise attend.

Hey,
Not to be a downer but I may not meet up at the designated spots this year because someone on this forum is being a dick to me. I don't feel safe now. It is too bad that someone can take something and twist it so badly out of context and then stay so bitter about it. I feel like this person is not mentaly stable and I would not want to put myself in a situation where they knew where I was going to be. I just don't feel irie about it. I wouldn't want my weekend ruined because of a dick that like. Not to say it would happen, I just want to protect myself. I'll be thinking of everyone and I might peek over during the Midnite show though.

Zana don't let that **** stop you from meeting. You're going to be there anyways and this person may recognize you at some other part of the fest. Tell us who it is or -email us so we might be able to help you. Security in numbers.
