Event Description

Let's get ready, Victoria. This show is going to be THE BEST show to hit Victoria this summer. With so many talented acts coming together on one stage, those won't be a show to miss! Shaggy and Rayvon will be playing all the classic tunes, as well as his latest reggae and dancehall hits. Mexico's Los Rastrillos will bring their own take on soulful reggae, and our own local talent with Vancouver's Ponderosas and Victoria's DJ Anger will get the entire harbour-front dancing.

Shaggy
Mr. Lover lover, Mr. Boombastic, Shaggy is a man of many names. Starting his music career in 1990, his lift of achievements are impressive. Hits like “Oh Carolina,” “Boombastic,” and “Angel” established Shaggy as a worldwide pop artist, but he is indeed much more. His latest album, Out of Many, One Music, reconfirms his place as one of today’s premier reggae musicians. Produced by Sly and Robbie, and featuring artists like Beres Hammond, Damian Marley, and Tessanne Chin. From reggae to pop, from funk to rock, Shaggy is an artist not to pass up!


Los Rastrillos

Mexico City’s Los Rastrillos have been playing for over 20 years and continue to win over new fans everyday with their blend of roots reggae and latin music. They’ve performed alongside the likes of Jimmy Cliff, Michael Franti, and Los Lobos. With 10 members and 6 albums, this is one party you don’t want to miss.


The Ponderosas
The Ponderosas take soul, r&b,reggae, and blend together in a musical blender until they’ve got everyone in the crowd moving and grooving to their festive and lively rhythms. this Vancouver eight-piece have worked with groups such as Natural Flavas, The Boom Booms, and Rude City Riot. Their infectious music is sure to start a dance party throughout the festival grounds and all who check this group out are sure to become instant fans.
