Ready to Reggae? Sugarloaf announces line-up

March 13, 2010

Sugarloaf’s Bud Light Reggae Festival returns April 15-18 for three days of insanity, music, wild times, and (one hopes) spring skiing. The 2010 Reggae Festival will feature 11 bands, with a different headliner each day. Among those performing are:

• Inner Circle, Friday night, in the King Pine Room, tix required

• Kenyatta Culture Hill, Saturday night, in the King Pine Room, tix required

• TOSH-1, Sunday, free, and on The Beach

Supporting bands, performing for the free, outdoor concerts on The Beach, indoors for apres ski in the Widowmaker, and as warm-ups for the featured attractions, include:Mighty Mystic, Royal Hammer, Mystic Bowie, JSAN & The Analogue Sons, Dub Is A Weapon, Trumystic, iLa Mawana, and DJ Kompost.

If you haven’t been to Reggae Weekend, well, it’s an experience that kind of in the same vein as Woodstock (if you can remember it, you weren’t there). Full details, including schedule and costs, are on the website.

Free this weekend at L.L. Bean

On Saturday, Eileen Ivers, Celtic fiddler extraordinaire. On Sunday, put your dancin’ shoes on for some western swing with Asleep at the Wheel.

Both take place in Bean’s outdoor Discovery Park beginning at 7.30 p.m. Bring a chair, bring a blanket, bring a picnic. Do note: Many folks snag their spots way early in the day.

Bean’s accepts donations for local food pantries, so bring some canned goods with you.
