The JAMROCK Reggaefest, formerly known as the Westchester Reggaefest, celebrates 11 years as the Tri-state’s principal Reggae event. This “must be there” event features Reggae giants from yesterday and today, as well as future Reggae stars.
Due to the overwhelming success of the Vintage Reggaefest in December, we’ve decided to act on that achievement and move the Summer Reggaefest to Manhattan as well! The JAMROCK Reggaefest will be held at the Hammerstein Ballroom on Saturday June 14th.
The 2007 JAMROCK Reggaefest was sold out as usual 6,470 people attended; all coming together and celebrating the Art of Music in true authentic Reggae style.
But what is a show without a great line-up? This year’s headliners include “Roots and Rock legend” Third World, the “King of the Dancehall” Beenie Man, the “Lovers-Rock” Sanchez, the “Strong One” Etana, rising-star Christopher Martin and legend in the making Kymani Marley. Our goal, as it has been from the beginning, is to bring together a diverse range of incredible musical talent that will deliver. Join us and lets experience this beautiful music together!
