The 2013 Dallas Reggae Festival will host a cadre of local and legendary Caribbean music artists on September 13, 14 and 15 at Lynn Creek Park at Joe Pool Lake in Grand Prairie. This year’s line-up includes: Tian Winter, Everton Blender, Mad Cobra and Maxi Priest, in addition to, local jam band, One Love Uprising!

The 4th Annual Dallas Reggae Festival will bring together the best of Caribbean culture, food and music. This family fun event is the realized dream of one man: Local restaurateur Roland Frederick, who understood that Dallasites’ love of his fare at Caribbean Grill, on Forest Lane, left them hungry for an event that speaks to their hearts and souls through the music of his island birth.

“This event is not just for those familiar with Caribbean culture and music,” Frederick said. “But it is a great opportunity for those who think they know about reggae but have never personally experienced it, to get acquainted with some of the best performers in the genre.”

The event runs three days, beginning Friday at 5 p.m. until 11 p.m. On Saturday and Sunday the gates open at 1 p.m. closing at 11 p.m. The line-up is as follows:
