Having taken its place among the major festivals in the city, the Montreal International Reggae Festival is a source of pride for our community.
In its 12 years the event has grown into cultural force drawing tens of thousands over three days to the Old Port.
This year, Reggae Fest brings a spectacular line up of stars from various generations for the weekend of August 14-16.
Super star Beres Hammond headlines a power pack Friday night Roots Reggae line-up, which also includes Jah Cutta and Kaisha Lee.
Dancehall and soca rules on Saturday, August 15, when legends Shabba Ranks and Lady Saw take to the stage. Adding to the hype will be St. Vincent’s soca superstar Firemen Hooper together with Barbados’ Leadpipe and Saddis, who are taking the soca scene by storm.
The Saturday night line-up will also include dancehall stars Dexta Daps, Kranium and local hot-rod Daddy Ghost.
The Old Port will resonate with beautiful music on Sunday 16 when legends like Tarrus Riley and Cocoa Tea will be joined by The Manhattans, and Exco Levi.
Also on stage will be Iba MaHr and Oriel Bitty McLean.
