Award-winning reggae festival Positive Vibration – First wave of acts announced

Positive Vibration have been doing a marvelous job of establishing a Reggae scene in Liverpool, bringing bone-fide legends to the city as well as the regular “Reggae Social” events in the Baltic Triangle.

Their award-winning festival “Positive Vibration festival of Reggae” will be held on Friday 8th and Saturday 9th June, and the first wave of acts have been announced below.

I foolishly double-booked myself for the 2017 event, I’ll be sure not to repeat that mistake in 2018!  As my colleague Geniene said of last year’s festival “All round excellently organised festival with a stunning line-up. Add it to your must-do list for next year!”.

Without further ado, here are all the details:
