Once again, Cologneโ€™s Reggae Summerjam, also nearing middle age at age 28, has put together a diverse lineup as appealing to dancehall fans as to roots reggaephiles. Summerjam is the only reggae festival (as far as we know) bold enough to book Snoop Lion, who is joined on the festival by his producers/reggae tutors Major Lazer. Also performing are Busy Signal, Popcaan, Tarrus Riley, Alborosie, Matisyahu, Ken Boothe, Morgan Heritage, Richie Stephens, Romain Virgo, Chronixx, Protoje and, in a rare appearance, French reggae/dancehall legends Raggasonic.
