Celebrating its 9th year, Kuranada Roots is a festival honoring Reggae, Soul & Sound System Culture…
Kuranda Roots was conceived by Rudekat Records and The House of Falcon. For the last several years the wonderful Andrea Sharp co-directed the event – she has now gone to raise her family in the dreamtime country of Laura in Cape York. Filling her boots is Billy Dread (Bushweek Festival) who brings his rocksteady outdoor event crew – the Dreadagade Sound to keep the fyah burning!
“This year’s program is the most exciting to date, with a brilliant mix of roots and reggae acts, international anarchists, deep dub and electro artists, skankers and punkers all mashing it up with the best North Qld has to offer. We are chuffed to announce a collaboration with local avant gardists ArtHouse and the muliti talented Kuranda Coots who will be adding a multi dimensional twist to our arts program.”
Some of the performers who will be playing this year are: Combat Wombat, Monkey Marc, Elf Tranzporter, Kingfisha, Zennith, Die Rude ft. Lotek, Rastafari Riddims Feat. Marcus Fari & Culture Harry, Zennith, Darky Roots, Billy Dread, Kurandacoots & more!
