Looks good!

I haven't been to ROTR since the late 2000 We use to fly into san fran from MN then hitchhike our way. Since SNWMF seems to fall on fathers day weekend, i might have to go back. Is the place still loaded with drunks and party kids? Hopefully its a little more tame??

Was thinking getting the ambassador pass. Love the thought of being on the side of the stage.

Wow, Looking good! I may have to consider it this year. It's been years since I've seen Sizzla but I'm even more excited about Addis Pablo and Jah 9.

Fuh real! between Addis, Protoje, Jah 9, Jesse Royal and Keznamdi I can see some pretty amazing collaboration potentials! Looking much forward to seeing the tune Legitimate live with Protoje and Jah 9 together. Good to see the youths well represented on the line up.

s3izone- Reggae on the river is definitely a party vibe.. No beating around that bush. However, I will say that you can go there and have a very sacred experience with the music and the good people, despite the ongoing alcohol and drug thing. I know plenty of folks who go and bring their kids.. It's definitely not as much of a blatant party vibe as some of those edm or jam festivals.

This line up is right up my alley and I am super stoked on a lot of these artists. And there will be water!

Might be time to get back to the river...!

Wow, love the lineup and I will be there as always.....After last year tho I wonder how many of these artists will really be there? Not trying to be negative, just trying to be real. Has Sizzla secured his visa? After all the failed attempts does anyone have any actual info on this topic? I have my fingers crossed. Can't wait of SNWMF, then I will get excited about ROTR.

We'll see if Sizzla actually shows.. Can't help but wonder, for sure. I think that the ROTR people gotta be feeling pretty confident he'll show up if they put him as the top name on the line up.

I just reposted the line up I got emailed from the ROTR newsletter today. Doesn't seem like it's on the website yet but join the mailing list if you want something official.

I'm really hoping they give sizzla his Visa.. Last time he was suppose to come to Chico he got hated on.. The day I got my tickets in hand I found out the show was cancelled.. Looks like a solid dancehall lineup.. I hope they add a lil more roots too..

with all the no shows last year I really hope this lineup actually makes it to the stage... Ill be there regardless

Sizzla getting his VISA would be IRIE!

shouldn't he get his visa before he is announced as the headliner?

That's a difficult catch 22 in this industry.

In order to get the work permit, immigration usually wants an itinerary and proof of work (including signed contracts). On the flipside, most promoters don't wanna risk booking an artist unless they have a work visa... it's a hard situation all around

This is a super duper line-up! Best I've seen at a (U.S.) festival for years! Don't sleep on Mbwongana Star!

No visa for Miguel Collins.

Tahoe, I'm totally confused. The only person that didn't make it last year was King Jammy and Pablo Moses. Who else didn't make it??? All of the other bands played. 2 out of 25 is pretty good.
Re: Sizzla Headlining ROTR 2016!
March 05, 2016 04:31PM
Actually Westafari, Pablo Moses was there as a replacement for Jammy I believe. 1 of the best sets of the weekend IMHO. 1 other artists that I can't think of the name right now was absent as well if my memory serves me.

Protoje also was a no show at ROTR last year. Also I forget who Army was a replacement for, but wasn't originally on the line up.

Mr Williamz was a no show also.

Love that reggae!
Re: Sizzla Headlining ROTR 2016!
March 08, 2016 07:48AM
Yep, i was wrong. Pablo Moses filled in for King Jammy. Protoje couldnt get a visa.

If he makes it to the River i have already spoke with the booking agent and my old contract and DEPOSIT are to be honored. Everyone is very confident in his Visa approval and like Dr. Susses Said shows have to be booked to apply for the Visa. look for a California tour to come back in September. Reggae On The River will have the honor of his first show back.

'Let's not go overboard about Sizzla headlining ..he was great sandwiched between Mikey General and Luciano in 1997...and can we cut the 'will pooah Sizzwah get his vwisa? '...like the subject of Sizzla's visa whereabouts is more of an issue than any other artist trying to get to a festival out of country

But I say... Some Never Even Plant yet want to Reap,
If you run, be careful, try to look before you leap;
Took a little walk from my Vineyard...
Now I'm on my own
Now I'm left alone..

But he DID headline at the river in 2008, and put on one of the best shows ever!

Having attended the event despite different names/bowl locations/ownership/management/whatever... it all blends together so we just call it "the river" around our house...

[hypelifemagazine.com] Any question on the success of the appeal?
Re: Sizzla Headlining ROTR 2016!
March 22, 2016 09:06PM
That's from 2013 Papa Ray. I don't know if he actually appealed or not but, given it's now 3 years later, my guess is that any further efforts were not successful as he hasn't been seen stateside since then.

I read an article a few weeks ago (that I can't find now) stating his U.S. Visa but that article had lots of 'misinformation' in it and the author never responded to my inquiry as where Miguel's petition stood in the process My best recollection is that one of Sizzla's US Visas was denied after his interview. Typically, the interview process is pretty pro-forma and doesn't happen until just before the artist departs for the US. Most artists 'declare they got their petition approved' even though they still need to pass their 'interview' at some later date......

Pretty cool that Sizzla might be playing at ROTR but IMHO Beres Hammond is as big of a draw playing at SNWMF this summer. Those two are on the top of my must see list and I cannot go to either festival this summer as I am paying for a wedding. My luck is bad with reggae the last few years.
