4. Montreal International Reggae Festival (Montreal, August 17-19)

Popcaan has a Canadian Visa, so the Montreal International Reggae Festival has what all of the other international reggae fests don’t: the most important dancehall star of the moment. The ninth edition of Canada’s top reggae fest will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Jamaican independence with an almost all-JA roster (the only non-yardie on the bill so far is Montreal’s own Poirier) that also includes Jimmy Cliff, Cham, Tarrus Riley, Konshens, Khago and Assassin.
