The Valley Stage has always featured roots reggae on Saturday, and this year’s roster will be a blockbuster. No-Maddz and Etana will get the day rocking, to be followed by the return of Kabaka Pyramid backed by the Bebble Rockers Band. Tanya Stephens will then bless the people of Boonville for the very first time prior to Richie Spice taking to the stage. Israel Vibration will get Saturday night started before ‘The Voice of Jamaica’ – Beres Hammond makes his only California appearance this year at our 23rd annual summer solstice gathering. Saturday night’s capper will be the one and only Toots and The Maytals, who will be making its very first festival appearance since Toots was injured nearly three years ago.
Saturday’s Village Stage will get started in the morning with Piracy Conspiracy out of San Diego, followed by the US debut of Italy’s own Mellow Mood. Asheba will perform in the afternoon, followed by World Music in the evening from the Bay Area’s Candelaria. Koradub, who hail from Chile, will be up next followed by the newly reborn Zulu Spear band. And the party band extraordinaire – Afrolicious will keep things hot on the Village Stage on Saturday night. More musical fire will be presented in the Dancehall from 8:00-2:30am as Comanche High Power, Ras Kush and Rorystonelove Black Dub lay down some wicked tracks all night long.
