No Comments Latest Reggae News

Welcome to Kalamazoo Island Fest 2015! This is the 20th anniversary of Island Fest and we have a great musical line up to help celebrate the special occasion.

Get ready for some good times with three days and nights of reggae music rocking Kalamazoo!

Food, drinks, beer, and wine are available by the purchase of tickets, each costing $.50 for items usually priced between three and eight tickets. Great emphasis must be placed on the available variety and quality of Jamaican and Caribbean inspired cuisine.

For entertainment, the live reggae music line-up runs all day and ranges from the top local talent to well-known regional and national headliners presented outdoors under blue skies and beautiful sunshine all the way until the evening playing irie tunes under the moon and stars.

This year the festival will be taking place August 27th-29th at the Kalamazoo Growlers baseball field. The decision to move the festival was not taken lightly but is one that we feel is important for the longevity of the festival. Our resources are going to be best used at the Kalamazoo Growlers field and the event has the potential to be more successful than it ever has been. We are very excited to be making this transition and working with the Growlers in this endeavor.

Since its inception Island Festival has grown in numbers and stature.  The work begins during the frigid Michigan Winter to bring the finest entertainment possible.  Island Festival is now listed in numerous festival directories and draws over 15,000 reggae fans yearly.  Like any good festival we combine family entertainment, great food, beverages, music and most importantly a great vibe!

Pato Banton & the Now Generation , Dubtonic Kru, Lazo, Gizzae, Zion Lion, MidwestHype, Uprizin Steel Band, Rumblefish, DiMaschine featuring Bunny Jackson & Devon Brown, Irie Trinity, Indika, more!
