We’re back!

Following the success of Reggaefest 2010 at the Byron Bay Brewery, Spring 2011 will see the festival return to the area on September 17 & 18 at our stunning new outdoor location where the river meets the sea, 25 minutes south of Byron Bay.

Meters from the river and minutes from surf beaches, for two days Missingham Park will be home to some of the biggest national and international talent in Reggae, Dancehall, Dub and Roots music.

Reggaefest will feature an open-air marketplace that will offer a selection of local craft items and clothing as well as health conscious food with international flavors. As an all ages event, a supervised kid-friendly zone with activities throughout the day makes it perfect for families.

The massive line-up is yet to be announced but rest assured Reggaefest is preparing a quality experience.

2011 website will be accessible from April 1st with Early Bird ticket specials and how you can get involved.

In the meantime feel free to sign up to the mailing list on www.reggaefest.com.au for all the latest news direct to your inbox.

Yes big up Raz, Dave and crew for this one, as well as all the wicked, wicked acts that performed. Deadly Hunter was the star of the show as far as I'm concerned - seriously impressed and can't wait til he comes back again! Have to big up Krazy Dave for his skills backing up Deadly Hunter and Jah Mason too, job well done.

Was a proper ting this - excellent production, excellent vibe, even the babylon were very well behaved - glad Jah Mason never get arrested ;)

Highly recommend to EVERYONE that didn't make it this year to mark it in your calendar for next year.

Reggaefest ya LARGE!
