Reggae On The River

I was Reggae On The River again on July 16th and 17th. It was over 10 hours drive from my house, but it was worth it.

 

The official camp ground is the Cooks Valley Campground. It is same area of where ROTR was held before. It is very nice under the shade of the red wood trees setup. I forgot to bring my hammock!
 



Music are coming from all over the campground. Reggae campers like to play own music!

 

 

To get to the concert, take the school shuttle bus. It’s 10 miles north of the camp ground.

Driving through beautiful redwood tree forest.

 


This is Redwood stage.

Bushman. I love his Selassie Tie Dye T-shirts. I wonder where he got it.



Super crisp clear sound system. Even security dude starts dancing.

 

 

 

Nice messages. Northern Cali vibes.






Humboldt Size!

Rootz Underground performance. I loved it.
 Tony Rebel.
 Queen Ifrica.

 

 

 


The concert finished 10pm, then the after hour party was held at Cooks Valley Campground every night until dawn.

They played mostly Dancehall selections. The PA system blew me away. They are BASSCRAFT . Highly recommended to experience this sound system.

 

I am so glad that ROTR came back strong and the vibe was same. I don’t think it is possible to have same festival even in other part of California. You need to come all way up to Humboldt to experience this.
One note for camping at the official camp site. If you need to sleep night, go to other camp grounds nearby. You can’t sleep night due to massive sound system.

I started packing for Reggae on the river. Looking forward to see Queen Ifrica, Clinton Fearson, Rootz Underground. There are still tickets available. It will be a nice beautiful weekend!
