Summerjam selection starts sizzling!

Summerjam 2012

This year’s 27th ‘Together As One’ SUMMERJAM reggae festival at Fuhlinger Lake in Cologne, Germany takes place between Friday July 6th and Sunday July 8th next. As in previous years the (initial) line-up covers the cream of the crop of reggae’s various strands.

Topping the ‘roots’ selection comes Burning Spear and his Young Lions, whilst Sean Paul brings on the Dancehall dimension. Those looking for an all-round high excellence reggae ensemble can rely on Alborosie and his Shengen clan, whilst the all-important African angle comes courtesy of Tiken Jah Fakoly.

Marley-inspired SOJA bring their popular hit sounds from America, whilst Stephen Marley - fresh from his 2012 Grammy award for best album – maintains the festival’s Marley family link. Midnite and U-Roy represent the roots of reggae (and in the latter’s case the birth of ‘toasting’) as Nneka ensures that those addicted to hip hop soul will get more than their fair share of the festival’s high times.

Both Danakil and Irie Revoltes will bring a welcome French sound to the setting, complemented by the German-Indonesian influence of Sebastian Sturm and Berlin’s Boom Orchestra.

There’s much to look forward to at SUMMERJAM, where all tastes are catered for – and that’s even before the line-up is finalised!
