THIRD WORLD TO LEAD THE 15TH ANNUAL REGGAE FEST, APRIL 12-14, IN LAKE WORTH, WEST PALM BEACH!

By Willie Howard

LAKE WORTH —

The 15th annual Reggae Fest is expanding to three days this year and is set for Friday through Sunday at Bryant Park.

More than 10,000 attended Reggae Fest last year, making it the second most popular event in the city behind the Street Painting Festival in February, said Jaene Miranda, chief executive officer of the Central Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce, which organizes the annual spring music festival.

Miranda expects attendance to reach 15,000 this year with the addition of a third day and the quality of the bands scheduled to perform.

Headliners at this year’s Reggae Fest include Dirty Heads, a reggae band from California scheduled to play on Saturday night, and Third World, a Jamaican band established in 1973 whose sound is influenced by soul, funk and disco. Third World is scheduled to perform Sunday afternoon.

Other performers scheduled to perform include Ras Kokay & the Rythmadix, Bradley Brown, Army of Gideon, Hor!zen, Jahfe and The Resolvers.

The Bryant Park boat ramps and the east side of South Golfview Road adjacent to the park will be closed Friday through Sunday for Reggae Fest. The boat ramps will reopen at 6 a.m. Monday.

Valet parking will be available. Vendors will sell food and artwork during the event. No coolers, alcohol or weapons will be allowed inside the festival gates.

The chamber of commerce is accepting applications for volunteers to help with Reggae Fest. Applications can be downloaded at www.lwreggaefest.com. For information, call the chamber at 561-790-6200.
