10th Annual Reggae Carifest Announces 2008 Line-Up
Published April 22, 2008

A highly-anticipated event, the 10th Annual Reggae Carifest will take place Sunday, July 6th at the USTA National Tennis Center: Arthur Ashe Stadium in Flushing Meadows Park, Queens, NY. The line-up of performers at the event has been announced, and it is nothing short of stellar.

 

The show will feature sets by legendary Grammy award winner Lee “Scratch” Perry, Matisyahu, who brings his uncanny, electrifying fusion of orthodox Judaism and classic reggae, and Eek A Mouse - a reggae performer who has a name for himself in the early 80’s, as well as cutting edge St. Croix roots reggae band, Midnite.

 

The festival is opening its arms to a wider array of reggae artists from a variety of backgrounds and cultures to help spread the original intent- a day to celebrate the coming together of cultures and a shared appreciation for good music. Several additional artists of diverse backgrounds will make an appearance, including Brooklyn bred and Jamaican raised Kayla Bliss and the up and coming conscious reggae crooner Uriel Hamilton.

 

Launched in 1998 Reggae Carifest was initiated principally for uniting the West Indian/Caribbean Culture for one full day of cultural awareness, consciousness and celebration of the culture here in the United States. It has morphed into something much greater than a mere event it is an exhibition of the arts and the community and a cultural celebration.
