Horace cancelled?!?!?!?

I and I have reached out to my sources within the reggae community. I have reason to believe Horace is not in the country. I don't feel President Brown is a suitable replacement for Horace Andy. Please let us known as soon as possible who will be the replacement

don't know anything about Horace but just read this:
June 14, 2017

NEW YORK, USA — New immigration rules imposed by the Donald Trump Administration prevented dancehall deejay-turned-gospel act Stitchie from performing in New York on Sunday.

He was part of a group of entertainers — including Sister Carol, and Mutabaruka — who were scheduled to perform at a show at Roy Wilkins Park in Queens.

Stitchiemic

Stichie, whose real name is Cleve Laing, took the stage and explained to thousands of fans that he was “unable to obtain a work permit on time that would allow me to perform”.

He said that before last November’s presidential elections, he had met the requirements which allowed him to secure a work permit.

“Once the Administration changed, I was asked to provide additional documents and information in order to obtain a permit. I met those requirements, but the time frame did not allow for me to get the permit.”

Rules have to be followed, he told his supporters, “so I hope you understand”. He also took pains to explain that “the situation has nothing to do with the promoters, but is entirely due to these new rules”.

He said that he felt it important to appear and explain the situation, “as very often promoters are blamed for artists not showing up to perform”.

Pressure, Sizzla, and others in Oakland on the 17th and open date on the 18th.

Sizzla would be crazy, but unrealistic. And no Prezident Brown and Don Carlos are not good replacements. Lets get someone that doesn't tour California on the regular.

He was supposed to play the Belly Up in San Diego and if you check their website it says he is no longer playing.

just a thought.. they don't need to replace anyone.. they already have artist who are performing twice.. having Ranking Joe do the same wouldn't be the worst idea.

+1000 on the Ranking Joe stand-in idea. Have one of the DJs spin the riddims to Horace Andy's biggest tunes and let Ranking Joe go to work on them. Have the DJ weave Horace Andy's voice in and out of the tune - what a session!
Ranking Joe to the rescue!

Not cool. I couldn't make this year's fest, but this reminds me of last year when they canceled Scratch Perry and shifted Don Carlos the first and only day I was able to attend. People are spending their hard-earned $$$ and coming distance. This continues to be a problem in the reggae community. When did the festival know that 2 major acts weren't showing?

The festival started super strong with exco levi the skints and gentleman. It was amazing. No complains for me only good stuff. Respect and love to the organizers to bring us such good vibes

You forget to mention Mellow mood back for second year and chronixx, super polished great show, his recent tour definitely gave him great experience. Gentleman was phenomenal, great to see him back after his first appearance in the US at Sierra Nevada world years ago, great stage presence and really works the crowd. We definitely agree that the first was off to a super strong start, would enjoy seeing Marlowe Brown today, but will likely show up around three to start with Dennis Bovell, from then on it's more less headlining ask all the way until late night

This continues to be a problem in the reggae community.

To this day touring reggae outa the Jamaican crèche involve it's own unique challenges that those pampered in the relative peace & prosperity of the West more time don't got a clue. Not only in the West, even in Jamaica, many vainly simplify the blame with the word 'politics' or 'garrison politics' or even the big bad 'Whitey' ... but the deeper reality is the defaults of our immature human race - & that's including you, mi, nuff of the reggae pioneers & the downside to be found in every race.

The lights were bright with the reggae pioneers but certain shadows were dark and getting worse. Certain key reggae pioneers turn a deaf ear to Yabby You's (& notable others too) prophesy and now Jamaica suffering the con-seequence.

So now inna this a time reggae festival patrons in the West think ya got it ruff. How bout the suffrah in Jamaica paying the price of nuff reggae archetype deceived by good lookin dark shadows & them become deceivers ... Dem Spirit was strong but the flesh/ego was sofff & dem didn't dial in the fullness for the future generations. Portion of them quickly destroy themselves and sabotage the future of the massive ... Jamaica today 4th highest murder rate on the planet (outside declared war zones) and on that little island of 2 3/4 million population - 5000 missing children !!!!

Ya disappointed IRIEMON but ya barking up the wrong tree. Stay Irie & don't mistake SNWMF with certain festival de-moters who practice 'bait & switch.' The SNWMF pro-moter's long track record speak for itself as highly ethical providing a unique, positive, loving family vibes gathering.

Wish i could attend this year but i'm with ya in Spirit
