artists to perform for you:
Stranger’s music carries a progressive sound that has put them at the top of San Diego’s reggae scene and has distinguished them as “San Diego’s favorite reggae band”. Although Stranger is independent from a major record label, they’re live performances and Limited Edition EP have had a powerful effect on building a strong following throughout California and Mexico, and a heavy buzz across the nation and abroad.

KUSH is an accomplished reggae singer, song-writer, and composer who has built a solid reputation and has also produced several other successful acts in West Africa. JAH BLOOD FIYAH ANGELS is San Diego's most respected roots reggae band.

Few groups better captured the heart and soul of roots reggae than the Abyssinians; the vocal trio's heavenly close harmonies, dark melodies, and Rastafarian themes, all delivered with a deep spiritual feeling, were instrumental in defining and refining the genre.

5:30 PM
In Jamaica, where vocal groups are held in great esteem, the Melodians are one group that really matters. Their output on the influential Treasure Isle label proved their greatness.

7:30 PM
.......... Ky-mani Marley
He was just five years old when his father Bob Marley died, though the sound of Ky-mani's voice returns you to a very familiar place. Taking you to a new generation of a past reggae explosion, his message remains the same, "one love, one aim, one destiny".

9:30 PM
Vocal trio the Mighty Diamonds were one of the most internationally popular reggae groups to emerge from the '70s roots era. More accessible than many other roots outfits, the Diamonds boasted soulful, gorgeously pure harmonies and tight, catchy songwriting, much of it from within the group itself. They were devout Rastafarians.
