Go Vegan Radio (501(c)3) presents the first-ever San Diego Reggae Vegan Fest on Sunday, July 21, 2019 Liberty Station / NTC Park – Preble Field 12 noon to 9pm.
The headliner, Third World, celebrates 45 years as one of reggae’s most iconic legendary bands. Third World is one of Jamaica’s most consistently popular crossover acts among international audiences. Mixing in elements of R&B, funk, pop, and rock and, later on, dancehall and rap, Third World’s style has been described as “reggae-fusion.”
10 Grammy nominations and a catalogue of charted smash hits, including “Now That We Found Love”, ”96 Degrees in the Shade” and “Try Jah Love”, spanning over four decades, sold-out tours, a vibrant and loyal fan base and inspirational messages make this band a festival favorite.
Also starring at this event is Yami Bolo from Kingston, Jamaica, who has been releasing singles since the 1980’s. He gained international acclaim in the mid-90’s for his collaboration with Japanese reggae performer Miya which led to 500,000 record album sales in Japan. The duo also won the title of Best Music Video in Japan in 1994. Bolo was a part of Damian Marley’s 2001 Grammy-winning album and has collaborated with other top stars. He will be backed by Quinto Sol.
