How do you have people like Chronixx, Protoje, Steel pulse, Don Carlos, and Israel vibration but headline Slightly Stupid, Rebelution and Dirty Heads? And, then you call it a reggae festival? It's a stretch to even call two of those headliners reggae.

In a world that confers upon Donald J Trump the title of Leader of the Free World, there is this reality... Steel Pulse opens for Dirty Heads.

My world is upside-down.

Where is this festival exactly? It can't be on the boat because the boat is not that big and it cant be on the lawn in front of the boat because its winter time. Is it at the Long Beach Convention and Entertainment Center; same place as the Bob Marley Festival used to be located?

I just called the Observatory in OC at 714-957-0600. They said it is an "outdoor" festival in front of the boat in the parking lot and lawn.

Its at Harry Bridges Memorial Park "near" the Queen Mary.

I ask myself this on a daily basis in California... wtf

The venue is fun, seen many shows there, Shabba Ranks, Luciano, Culture, Alton Ellis, Ken Booth all memorable shows there.

Believe it's where the 'Old School Jam' used to be ,,

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..

I have said this many times.. the reason those bands headline is because not enough people will buy tickets and attend if they are not on the bill. They have to headline because of the amount of money you are going to pay them. Headlining is like going to the NBA All Star game. It is a popularity contest not a measure of who is more talented.

Ninja, I have never seen Reggae on the River headline these bands. They seem to sell plenty of ticketswinking smiley I know I know reggae on the river is pretty established and not in southern california, so not a fair comparison. You are probably right, but I find it a little disrespectful to artists like Steel Pulse, Don Carlos, & Izzy vibes since without them there would be no Rebelution, or Soja. Personally these artists headlining means I won't be attending.

they must not feel any way about their slot position..
they agreed to the contract and accepted the deposit money; hence their name on the billing..

as fans, sometimes we get caught up in the whole ideology of the music.. equal, rights, justice, rah rah rah..
but at the end of the day, these guys are thankful to be touring the world, instead of being caught up in the day-to-day realities of the island

I don't think they care. Fans care.. artists want to get paid and play for a crowd. Like BV said many of them are touring so this is only one stop out of many. I know Chronixx is touring now on the left coast.

It's a Cali-Roots, but they can't call it that because someone trademarked that "word", with a latin classic rock band, and a hip-hop group thrown in for good measure. smoking smiley

I thought is was great! I attended Saturday as a guest and got to see Raging Fyah, Chronixx, Protoje, Don Carlos, and Israel Vibration. We stayed on the Queen Mary and I-vibes played the after party Saturday, so all in all, it was a great trip south. That was my first time seeing raging Fyah and Chronixx and I've been waiting three years for that! My highlight was linking with my bredren from Inna Vision and seeing Chronixx join Protoje onstage for Who Knows...BOOM!

Now that would be sweet seeing Chronixx and Protoje play Who Know. One of my all time favorite songs! Have seen them both do it by themselves but never together.
