Just curious in one or two words- describe what brings you back to SNWMF again and again. I can think of a whole heap of reasons but I choose to use:

Irie Vibes

A promise I made to three friends to keep coming back together every year the festival is still in existence, the vibes, the new friendships, the community experience, and the stellar lineup.

The DJ's, mainly ,whose knowledgeable brains I continue to lovingly pick and pry. Respect due.

I say... Some Never Plant yet want to Reap,
Be careful, try to look before you leap;
Took a little walk from my Vineyard...
Now I'm all alone..

This evening, as Ive been packing to go up with friends tomorrow,
I pull out every one of my SNWMF t-shirts in awe
(me & my love have been attending since 2000)
and I'm, like, wow-this brings back so many awesome good memories!

if i were to try to capture why i keep coming back for 14 years in one sentence

"Blessed Be-There ARE people like me-and we love the music, keep the peaceful spirit, and we light up with thee!"

One LOVE

Although I enjoy meeting up with friends, and enjoy the vibes with fellow reggae fans, it truly is the artists that keep me coming back to the festival.

I've been listening to, and seriously collecting, reggae albums for over 20 years, and it's my first, and often, only chance to see some of these artists live that I've been listening to all the way back to my early high school days. That's why it's such a gut shot that Max Romeo and U Roy couldn't make it this year (although I understand the reasons and really like the replacements!). It's artists like them that bring me back to this festival.

One last thing: while there are other reggae festivals out there, in my opinion, no other festival brings the diversity and overall collection of artists like SNWMF. Artists like Iqulah, Ras Michael, and Cornell Campbell this year, and artists like Prince Alla and Larry Marshall in the past (just to name a few) are examples. Of course, I'm still bummed that I never got to see my favorite, Yabby You, perform years back (was too broke at the time to go).

It's a church, where one does not have to go to search. The presence of the Trinity, the one blood of my human family, and many beautiful cultures.




oh yeah.......and my traditional room is always availible at the travel lodge, formerly the hyatt in Ukiah

The people keep me coming back. I have met so many wonderful people over the years, so many positive, conscious, uplifting interactions. My best friend and InI agreed when we were at Reggae in the Hills, the music is always wonderful, but for us, festivals are about the people. And InI will see all of you beautiful people beginning this evening! InI can't wait!!

Jah Blessings and One Love to all. Tonight, we ride!

The freedom, peace, and love of Reggae in Nor Cal. 1000s of people and very few, if any, incidents. Herbal peace and love between people of the world that can be found nowhere else.

The people, the vibes, the music...the food!!!

Seriously though, I very much look forward to this weekend every year...this was my 8th snwmf since 2003 and I will always come back. The sheer energy of LOVE of everyone coming together in peace and unity. SNWMF gives me hope that the human race can get along and live in love. Jah, Rastafari bless.
