Raggamuffin 2012 - First Artist Announcement

Joining Ali Campbell's UB40 at Raggamuffin 2012 will be Grammy Award Winning artist Billy Ocean, son of reggae legend (and now star in his own right) Marvin Priest, US reggae group Big Mountain, The Wailers’ Junior Marvin and Lucky Dube’s daughter Nkulee Dube.

Joining the hot line-up of international artists on the main stage are Kiwi groups Kora and Three Houses Down. And because fans have asked us for more Kiwi artists, we’ll be giving them just that. House of Shem, Cornerstone Roots, Sons of Zion, Sweet & Irie, Tomorrow People, Soljah, NRG Rising and Foundation will all be part of the 5th anniversary event as will DJs Sir-Vere, Poroufessor and Beau Zee.
 
2012 will be the greatest event yet, delivering festival-goers over 12 hours of great reggae, dancehall and funk with a dash of RnB and hip hop. Two stages and twice as many artists than ever before.

More artists will be announced in late October including TWO more major international acts and more NZ acts.
