The Newport Waterfront Reggae Festival Is Outta Here!!!

Another victim of the Newport Yachting Center purchase.

Bad news for those of you who love Newport and Grammy Award winners Steel Pulse, because that’s not a combination that’s going to happen this year.

Instead, that band, Barrington Levy, Third World, Mighty Mystic, High Hopes Band, The Copacetics and Omega Sound’s DJ Realm will be playing India Point Park in Providence as the Waterfront Reggae Festival on August 8th from noon to 10pm.

The good news for Newport reggae fans?

There’s still going to be plenty of local reggae this summer. Case in point, the Dubby Conquorers, a tribute to Bob Marley, will be playing Parlor this Friday!

Duppy Conquerors

So we have that going for us, which is nice.
