We reveal you the first artists !
This 20th line up is as always of first class quality full of boldness and novelties. Full of classics and big names like this year UB40 who will honour us playing some of the greatest reggae hits, Ky-Mani Marley the prodigious son, Steel Pulse the UK reggae precursors or Tryo who led reggae music where we couldn’t expect it. Danakil leader of French reggae music will be there too with its engaged music and Balik’s poignant lyrics. Talking about engaged music we’re happy to welcome Keny Arkana’s thorny and poetic rap. La Rue Kétanou will represent well French language and festive spirit that we particularly love at Reggae Sun Ska. Harrison Stafford Groundation’s charismatic leader will bring his new solo album from Jamaica with some of the greatest musicians from the island. Inna De Yard will continue the Jamaican tradition bringing together some of the reggae’s most beautiful voices. Yaniss Odua will heat up the stage as he uses to do it with his Caribbean dancehall which will make you dance until the end of the night. Hippocampe Fou will be the spokesman of the new French rap generation a special combination between MC Solar and BobyLapointe! Jahneration and Volodia are the new French reggae jewels with their hip hop flows and influences for sure they will mark some spirits. And Kingfisha will bring some Australian fresh air!
This year again Dub is honoured as we particularly like it! This genre is becoming popular again since few years and it’s all a culture which is being reborn. Legal Shot Sound System and Mungo’s Hi Fi Sound System are still there to heat up Dub Foundation stage! David Rodigan will honour us playing its legendaries dubplates and the famous Aba Shanti-I will be specially there coming directly from London to celebrate this Reggae Sun Ska’s 20thyear!
Well we wish you many surprises strong feelings and love for this 20thedition!
