Itโ€™s one thing to keep the momentum of an event going, and growing, for one or two decades, but three? Thatโ€™s when youโ€™ve earned the right to be called an institution. The longest-running active reggae festival in the US (and maybe the world?), the non-profit Mateel Community Centerโ€™s Reggae on the River follows up its 30th anniversary last year with Edition #31. Stephen Marley (along with the Ghetto Youths International crew), Tarrus Riley, Cham, Alborosie, Protoje and Indiggnation, Collie Buddz, The Congos, Ce’Cile and Emmanuel Jai are just a few of the acts weโ€™re looking forward to seeing at this yearโ€™s ROTR.
