For its 17th edition, Reggae Sun Ska fest has moved within the city of Bordeaux, France,  to the campus of Domaine Universitaire. With the new location comes a strong lineup that includes Jimmy Cliff, Stephen Marley, Popcaan, Lee “Scratch” Perry with Mad Professor, Black Uhuru, Alpha Blondy, Fishbone, Mr. Vegas, Etana, Raging Fyah, Al Campbell and a Three the Hard Way set featuring the classic combo of Charlie Chaplin, Josey Wales and Brigadier Jerry. We also noticed both Shinehead and Mr. Williamz on the bill; after seeing this dynamic duo vibe together during the Welcome to Jamrock cruise last October, we just know they’ll be cooking up something together for Reggae Sun Ska, as well.
