Raggamuffin 2011 in Pictures!

THE DREAD ZONE finally meets the great DON CARLOS! The smiles reveal everything!

DON CARLOS was without a doubt Sunday's biggest crowd pleaser! His set was simply amazing!



RAS MICHAEL, just prior to his astounding performance with the SONS & DAUGHTERS OF NEGUS where he played classics from the RASTAFARI album.



FLABBA HOLT! FLABBA HOLT! Legendary bassist and member of the ROOTS RADICS pauses to say hello and pose for a snap shot.


JARRET (the Dread Zone) asking HORACE ANDY for a more staged photograph.



The great HORACE ANDY (also of Massive Attack!)



THE DREAD ZONE & ISRAEL VIBRATION



ISRAEL VIBRATION LIVE!



JARRET ("The Dread Zone") and Richie Spice

GENTLEMAN AND RICHIE SPICE


GENTLEMAN spread the positive vibes at his press conference. He joked about having to answer the question (yet again) about how a white German became a top reggae superstar!


FULLY FULWOOD: legendary session bassist and member of the SOUL SYNDICATE



CORNELL CAMPBELL opened his set with his classic tune, "Rope In." Nice.

RICHIE SPICE was quiet and somewhat shy... that is, until he took to the stage.




ETANA gave an amazing performance on day 1 of the festival, proving that this former back-up singer to Richie Spice is a major contender in reggae.
