greetings to everyone, nice show up at sierra nevada, lots of good food and shopping and good vibes.
want to let everyone know to come and check the dreadstock fest in september, putting together a festival is much hard work and drama, but i am hopeful it will go well and be another option for folks to come and enjoy the music.
me and the few cats promoting this fest are no one special, just some fans trying to make a cool thing happen, there is no perfect way or pre-set template to making a festival win and jump right from the start, i do give thanks to all the folks who have asked how they can help and shown love like mysticlion and others...
this stilll continues to be one of the few genres of anything creative where people can put together something from scratch and make positive changes in the world, i am going to learn the game of sponsorship as best i can, where a ton of hats and try to bring the nicest show wherebey folks can check earthdance, dreadstock and reggae in the park as a finale to summer of 2004...
forward, john dillinger

looking forward sisterlil, dreadstock will certainly be an all ages event and kids can feel light and easy there, my daughter is 10 years old andd one of the reasons i felt so inspired to jump into this wild rolller-coaster ride of festival promotion...
i do believe the roots community has a great deal of conciousness and self regulation, folks generally know how to have discretion check the vibe and know that certtain things can vibe right at one festival and at another, folks ease up and show discretion...
the beauty of all this is no one of us needs some hardcore figure in blue to come barreling towards anyone making commands, rather we are a minimal liability community in this often crazy world...
sincere and respect, john dfillinger

we are figuring out all the play-times and so forth for bands and artists, dj's, etc... it is a cool line-up when i think of mix of cali scene, roots legends and hawaii vibe, i am working hard on sponsors so everything paid right for proper infrastructure and all that...
anyone who can help with sponsors and directing quality and original vendors, much thanks!
sincere, john dillinger

John,
Thanks for your hard work in putting on dreadstock. I am looking forward to it. It was also good to see you at the fest, I think it had been a year since i saw you at last year's fest. Take care and see you at the show.....Steve's friend... Chad

Is HUMBLE SOUL still going to be playing at dreadstock? I am coming all the way from east coast to enjoy the vibes. Sounds like the most crucial festival this year. I like the up and coming vibes myself. No sell out sounds. Can't wait to see Dubwize again (great @ SNWMF) , and Mikey Dread again. Thanks to who is organizing / promoting this festival. You need to do some works on the east coast. BLESS, jaypale ryder wrote:

Very much looking forward to Dreadstock 2004. Especially looking forward to the nice artist line-up and International DJ SupaMario holding it tight in between. He is an awesome masterful concert DJ.
One Love.

YES I, the line up looks great! I saw Mikey Dread and Resination together in Fairfax a while back and they were both absoulutley amazing! When will the line up be posted? Will Mikey and RESINATION be playing the same day? I also heard Midnite might be added on the bill! True?

What happened? He kept stopping the show because of the sound?
Re: dreadstock 2004

He's done that at Sierra Nevade too...

im not talking about minor annoyances like stopping the show because of the sound. i wasnt there so anything i say would be second hand. maybe someone who was there can chime in with some reality. regardless i hear there was a big scene before or after the show.

Re: dreadstock 2004

Yeah, Mikey Dread called and went off on my voice mail one time at like eight in the morning because he got pissed at me about something regarding last year's Sierra Nevada festival. He's weird. He called like 3 months later to go off on me. My first impression of him was really good, but after that happened I wasn't quite certain he's altogether there. Ya know what I mean.
Re: dreadstock 2004
July 13, 2004 04:45PM
Yeah, he flipped out on a radio DJ friend because he didn't have one of his songs on his playlist. Called him up and left a NASTY message.

He is a puss.
Re: dreadstock 2004
July 13, 2004 05:21PM
Yeah, that sounds like what he did with me. I guess we're all getting a good picture of him eh...? He really does have some great accomplishments as far as music and education, but he's weird.

greetings everyone,
mikey dread a good man, just got to remember the man started playing reggae music on he JBC in the 1970's when reggae music was still very much frowned upon and much heat inna 'city of god' style fought that brotha on every front for forwarding the vibe to his own folks in jamaica...
the fact the man alive and able to talk is mad respect given just aoubt every nice singer and dj from the golden era has passed on, lacksley castell, hugh mundell, dennis brown, garnett silk, tosh and so forth, the man created reggae radio and many friends are gone, the music is very personal and any weird or bad vibe from mikey should be taken with a grain of salt...
chimino, glad you like the selection of junior "dem wrong" demus, sammy dread and carlton livingston, ranking joe as well as a few surpirses coming out of retirement....
much love to everyone on this board for being who you are and a place i can come to reason, much love to sierra folks for keeping the boards up, allen, call me at home and everyone else feel free to e-mail me, we just some regular folks from vallejo who dig y'all so much
sincere, john dillinger

Is humble soul going to be playing like jaysutton asked? That would be ironic. It is almost impossible to see them here, in his own hometown!
