The 8th Annual Montreal International Reggae Festival return to the Quays of the Old Port

Last year, the Montreal International Reggae festival (MIRF) showcased Mr. Vegas, Cham and Lady Saw as headliners. This year, the MIRF team promises the most recognizable artistes in the dancehall industry with headliners such as popular dancehall entertainer: Mavado, the legendary Beres Hammond and international artiste of the year: Gyptian, each taking the stage at the Quays of the Old Port of Montreal during the two-day festival on August 20th and 21st, 2011 for the 8th staging of the event of what has become a tradition for reggae music supporters around the world.

This year’s festival will also see top artistes appearing on the MIRF stage for the first time. Nominated for Artiste of the decade last year at the EME Awards, Wayne Wonder will take center stage with the Harmony House Musicians along with Sharon Tucker who continues to mesmerize her audiences with her sweet melodic voice, her humbling personality and her experience as a true artist.
The line-up has further been diversified by the inclusion of the one of the longest running and most diverse bands Jamaica has ever produced: Third World. Founded in 1973, this band is known for their smashing hits, sold-out tours worldwide and inspirational messages.

The 10 time Grammy nominated band is expected to give a stellar performance at this year’s festival. The Reggae Ambassadors’ continued popularity can be attributed to their timeless music as they continue to connect with their fans across the globe.

The diversified line-up includes a mix of established, current and up-and-coming acts. The roster includes Jah Cutta and the Determination Band, Ijah, Iley Dread, Visionary, Dan Fiyah Beats and more.

THE STORY OF LOVERS ROCK by MENELIK SHABBAZZ is a feature length documentary tells the story of an era and a music that defined a generation in the late 70s and 80s. Lovers Rock is romantic reggae that was uniquely British. It developed from a small UK scene to become a global brand through the likes of UB40 and Maxi Priest

Lovers Rock was particularly influential to a new generation of black British young women and men who identified with this music that reflected their experiences. Female artists like Louisa Marks, Janet Kay, Brown Sugar, Carroll Thompson led a 'girl power explosion in it's early phase.

The music provided a coping mechanism against a backdrop of racial tension and riots across the UK as well as being a counterpoint to the male dominated 'roots' scene.

The film combines live performances with some of the Kings and Queens of Lovers Rock with comedy sketches, interviews and archive material.

Interviews include Denis Bovell, UB40, Levi Roots Linton Kwesi Johnson, Angie La Ma, Maxi Priest, Mykaell Riley, The comedy sketches are provided by the likes of Eddie Nestor, Robbie G, Wayne Rollins, Glenda Jaxson. Rudi Lickwood, John Simmit., Annette Fagon.

A Network Ting always come correct with their events. Don't love the venue but for $10 and Chigga...I'll gather up the crew.
