10th anniversary Reggaetown Festival at Kuranda Amphitheatre
Reggaetown celebrates 10 years with a return to its original home in Kuranda.
WITH a decade of history in the North Queensland music scene, Reggaetown World Music Festival is back where it all began on September 1, bringing with it a classic line-up of the fest’s favourite acts.
With New Zealand heroes Katchafire, Australia’s own Blue King Brown and Jamaica’s Gramps Morgan from Morgan Heritage heading up the big celebration of all things reggae, roots and world music, other acts on the 2012 bill include Rize Of The Morning Star, Bobby Alu, Zennith, J MO & 3 Beans 5, Sista Itations, Tuff Tumas and Kanaka. Of course, they’ll be market and food stalls, yummy food and the famous relaxed vibe that the festival is known for.
Natalie Pa’apa’a from Blue King Brown said she and the rest of the band couldn’t wait to return to Kuranda Amphitheatre, after playing their first North Queensland show there at Reggaetown 2005.
“We’re ready for the tropics and ready to return to the awesome vibes of Reggaetown World Music Festival,” she says.
