The Sierra Nevada World Music Festival is Northern California’s premier roots reggae and world music festival. This year’s initial list of reggae artists slated to appear includes the Boonville debut of Germany’s biggest reggae star, Gentleman, who will be performing backed by his band The Evolution. Jamaica’s own Capleton will be making his Boonville debut and Tarrus Riley as well as Anthony B will be returning to nice-it-up for the good people of Mendocino County once again. 2017 will also feature the SNWMF debut of rising reggae star Chronixx alongside Zinc Fence Redemption. After their massively successful US debut last year, SNMWF is pleased to announce the return of Italy’s Mellow Mood as well as an appearance of Paolo Baldini DubFiles in the dancehall.
SNWMF is an annual family reunion for many and is known as being one of the most positive festivals in the region. It will take place June 16-18, 2017 at the Mendocino County Fairgrounds located in Boonville, California.
