1st Annual Budweiwser Reggae Summerfest

Reggae returns to Washington, DC, Sunday, September 7th at RFK Stadium... featuring reggae/lover's rock great Beres Hammond, Kymani Marley, strong newcomer Etana, i-Wayne, Turbulence, etc... backed by music-scene stalwarts Stryker's Posse and The Image Band.

Though promotions speak of the "untapped reggae market", the DC reggae scene has always been strong, thanks to the inexhaustible efforts of WPFW Radio (max RASpect to Sydney White, Papa Wabe, and Tony Carr) and feet-on-the-ground work of those like Derrick "Big D" Parker. this could be a welcome influence to rebound the roots vibe in the Nation's Capital.
