High Vibes festival tomorrow
Preparations are in gear for the inaugural High Vibes Roots & Reggae Festival set for tomorrow at the Aqueduct in Montego Bay.
It is the first event of its kind anywhere in the Caribbean and will showcase members of the Rastafarian culture engaging in musical tributes of roots and reggae alongside an unbeatable vendor exhibition, the very finest cannabis products and a delectable culinary experience.
It is expected to be an exciting event with hundreds of spectators coming out to take in the likes of reggae royalty Ky-Mani Marley, the king of dancehall Beenie Man, Lee 'Scratch' Perry as well as the boss, Rick Ross. High Vibes will be taking it a step further by providing a platform for young, up-and-coming artistes to showcase their talents to a larger audience.
The most intriguing aspect will no doubt be the splendid displays of Rastafarian craftsmanship that will engage mass participation while educating patrons on this unique culture.
Douglas Gordon of High Vibes Jamaica said that when the opportunity presented itself to host such an event, he did not hesitate but delved right in, as the marijuana laws are finally being amended and has opened up areas to invest and research.
"With preparation finally on it's way, it's safe to say that our patrons are in store for a night they will never forget, live music and succulent food. It will provide an ultimate festival experience and the chance to take in good roots rocking reggae," Gordon said.
