Does anyone know if the Northwest World Reggae Festival will be held this year in Astoria?
And yes, I'm aware this festival gets no love on this board.
Thanks for any info.

According to their twitter account today, the site has been moved to Scio, Oregon. East of Albany.

Are u sure you want to waist your time? It's a risk going to north west. The festival was supper fun , until someone got greedy ! Year before last head liners didn't play. Kabaka and Perfect both did not play Saturday night. From 5 pm when they were all suppose to start to midnight they just stalled. Then went back stage to ask questions and found out what was up. They sold tickets with no intent to pay the artist! This came from the head liners them selfs.

I'm amazed this is still going on. While last year didn't produce the horror stories of 2012 and 2013, the word I got was that they only had 500 paying attendees. How they managed to keep it going this year is beyond me. Defiitely wouldn't risk the time and the money to attend. Too much f&^%ery associated with this fest and its top dog.

I am guessing maybe nobody wants to play there anymore. Midnite played a 5 and half hour set last year and killed it and was the only reason I went. Don Carlos also played 3 plus hours but unless those two or dezarie are on the lineup there is no way I will be attending.
