Are you sure about this? Their website still has "2005" lineup listed and says to check back for this years.
[www.nwworldreggae.com]
This appears to be the right ticket info. it is working it appears:
[www.nwworldreggae.com]
It was the Pudding river last year after it was moved from hornings hideout but this year there is some resistence by the zoning people and city councils because the pudding river borders 2 separate countys and last years show was a bit of a surprise to the locals and many complaints were called in and filed because of sound levels coming from the stage.So we will see what happens. The land owners son rented it out last year when the landowner was away and has told some of the locals he would not have it there again to keep the neighbors happy.
Best of luck to all involved!!
Re: NW World Reggae Fest Artists Announced!!
March 19, 2006 08:02AM
yeah, thats gonna be the line-up, with a few more EXCEPTIONAL additions... stay tuned...

and yeah, while the website has not caught up, the problims hav bin ironed out and it will be the same nice Pudding River site...

Any specifics on the I-Grade - V.I. showcase? There are many artists coming out of there these days, and any of them will be a nice addition to this festival.

This is a great line-up. I saw KRS-One two years ago and walked away thinking that it was almost scary how much energy the man brought to the table. He makes most hip-hop artists look absolutely silly, the guy is so polished on the mic. I had listened to him from 1988-1993, and it was great to see him live; and now to see him again, this is gonna be nice!

Of course, all the other acts are great. I can't wait to see this festival again! Last year was nice too!

Re: NW World Reggae Fest Artists Announced!!

Only two local artists? Seems kinda thin for the poeple who push the vibes around the area.
Re: NW World Reggae Fest Artists Announced!!
March 19, 2006 06:47PM
Also, by world reggae, do you mean world and reggae or reggae from around the world?
Re: NW World Reggae Fest Artists Announced!!
March 19, 2006 07:30PM
bun, not sure about other "world" music at this years fest. the locals named are NOT the only ones on the list... I am quite sure that this is not the final, end-all lineup... there will be more names added still...

Yeah, the post states that it's the "inital" lineup," so this is not final by any means. I'm sure there are more artists in the works. Last year, they kept adding acts and I was loving it! They had at least double the number of artists last year, and I expect this years to be roughly the same...

Ras Danny, those 4 V.I. artists you mentioned would be nice! Perhaps they will sqeeze in Iba, Ras Attitude, Batch, and/or others to the mix!

A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall. Bob Dylan

Oh, where have you been, my blue-eyed son?
Oh, where have you been, my darling young one?
I've stumbled on the side of twelve misty mountains,
I've walked and I've crawled on six crooked highways,
I've stepped in the middle of seven sad forests,
I've been out in front of a dozen dead oceans,
I've been ten thousand miles in the mouth of a graveyard,
And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, and it's a hard,
And it's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.
Oh, what did you see, my blue-eyed son?
Oh, what did you see, my darling young one?
I saw a newborn baby with wild wolves all around it,
I saw a highway of diamonds with nobody on it,
I saw a black branch with blood that kept drippin',
I saw a room full of men with their hammers a-bleedin',
I saw a white ladder all covered with water,
I saw ten thousand talkers whose tongues were all broken,
I saw guns and sharp swords in the hands of young children,
And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard,
And it's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.
And what did you hear, my blue-eyed son?
And what did you hear, my darling young one?
I heard the sound of a thunder, it roared out a warnin',
Heard the roar of a wave that could drown the whole world,
Heard one hundred drummers whose hands were a-blazin',
Heard ten thousand whisperin' and nobody listenin',
Heard one person starve, I heard many people laughin',
Heard the song of a poet who died in the gutter,
Heard the sound of a clown who cried in the alley,
And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard,
And it's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.
Oh, who did you meet, my blue-eyed son?
Who did you meet, my darling young one?
I met a young child beside a dead pony,
I met a white man who walked a black dog,
I met a young woman whose body was burning,
I met a young girl, she gave me a rainbow,
I met one man who was wounded in love,
I met another man who was wounded with hatred,
And it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard,
It's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.
Oh, what'll you do now, my blue-eyed son?
Oh, what'll you do now, my darling young one?
I'm a-goin' back out 'fore the rain starts a-fallin',
I'll walk to the depths of the deepest black forest,
Where the people are many and their hands are all empty,
Where the pellets of poison are flooding their waters,
Where the home in the valley meets the damp dirty prison,
Where the executioner's face is always well hidden,
Where hunger is ugly, where souls are forgotten,
Where black is the color, where none is the number,
And I'll tell it and think it and speak it and breathe it,
And reflect it from the mountain so all souls can see it,
Then I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinkin',
But I'll know my song well before I start singin',
And it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard,
It's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.

Anyone know if Anthony B or the Igrade showcase are still possibile artists for this year? The NW World reggae website shows all the other performers listed on the first post, but not these two.

Either way, it will be great. But would love some VI roots this year.
Re: NW World Reggae Fest Artists Announced!!
March 31, 2006 09:11PM
yes, a possibility still, and more too, stay tuned!
