Award-winning reggae festival, Positive Vibration announces its first wave of acts for 2018.
The UK’s celebration of reggae music and Jamaican heritage returns in June 2018 for a jam-packed weekend of cultural appreciation and positivity.
Since its inception in 2016, Positive Vibration – Festival of Reggae has quickly established itself as one of the UK’s most exciting and eclectic reggae festivals, playing host to internationally renowned bands, legendary sound systems & selectors and some of the brightest new talent.
2018’s festival is no exception, with some absolute heavyweights already confirmed, including Macka B & The Roots Ragga Band, Adrian Sherwood and Creation Rebel, and Sister Nancy and Legal Shot Sound System amongst many others, with more announcements to come.
Taking place over the 8th & 9th June 2018 across the Baltic Triangle, Liverpool, the festival also sees the return of The Art of Reggae Exhibition – a successful collaboration between Positive Vibration and the International Reggae Poster Contest.
