Liverpool’s award-winning celebration of reggae music and Jamaican heritage, Positive Vibration, returns in June for a jam-packed weekend of cultural appreciation and positivity.

The Selecter

Fronted by the iconic, Pauline Black, The Selecter were oneof the key bands of the U.K ska revival of the late ’70s and early ‘80s (along with Madness and The Specials), often tackling sexism along with racism and other social ills.

Jah Shaka

The legendary operator & producer, who has been at the forefront of the UK reggae/dub scene since the mid-1970’s, will be bringing his full sound system for a 5 hour session.
