Headliner, DAMIAN 'JR GONG' MARLEY is a three-time Grammy Award winner . Marley has been performing since his teens and has recorded six albums to date.
In 2009, he became the only Jamaican reggae artist in history to win two Grammy Awards on the same night (Best Reggae album and Best Urban/Alternative Performance for ‘Welcome to Jamrock’)

Damian and his brothers Ziggy, Stephen and Julian Marley have established the record label Ghetto Youths International, and the family owned record label has been producing works by themselves and the next generation of reggae/hip hop artists. At Raggamuffin 2014 Damian Marley will be joined by three Ghetto Youths International artists – Christopher Ellis, Black-Am-I and Wayne Marshall – for an unforgettable two hour live experience.

“It will be particularly special to have Damian performing in New Zealand in the week of his father’s birthday and marking 35 years since Bob Marley’s historic performance at Western Springs which really gave birth to the reggae movement in this country and was the inspiration for the movie Mt Zion" says Festival Director Jackie Sanders, "It will be an incredible set to experience as Damian fires off a passionate crowd and we know the Raggamuffin fans will deliver!"

Globally known as “the Royal Family of Reggae”, MORGAN HERITAGE is a reggae band comprised of five children of reggae artist Denroy Morgan. The band performs at Raggamuffin 2014 on their first ever visit to New Zealand.

Grammy Award-winning artist SHAGGY has been a force on the music scene since 1993 and with his eleventh album set for release in September 2013, he continues to make waves in the reggae music world – his 1995 single Boombastic has clocked more than 19 million YouTube views. Shaggy features at Raggamuffin as the headline act for Friday 31 January.

Established 15 years ago, California-based reggae band GROUNDATION has taken the music world by storm, capturing the essence and drive of roots reggae and blending elements of jazz, funk, salsa, fusion and dub.
