October 13, 2010

Andrew McManus Presents is proud to announce the International line up for the fourth Raggamuffin festival as MARY J BLIGE, JIMMY CLIFF, MAXI PRIEST, SEAN PAUL, THE ORIGINAL WAILERS and KY-MANI MARLEY. The announcement of the New Zealand bands will follow next week.

'I'm really proud of the 2011 Raggamuffin line up. It's a superstar bill. It's our forth year running and the festival continues to grow stronger with around 30,000 people attending the Rotorua concert last year. Raggamuffin is always a hugely enjoyable day and the gift of reggae music is that fans tell us they walk away every year feeling uplifted and inspired' said promoter Andrew McManus.

Headlining Raggamuffin 2011 and for her very first New Zealand show, is the queen of RnB, American singer, producer, songwriter, actress MARY J BLIGE. Mary J has recorded with names such as Dr Dre, Tricky, Neyo, Ludacris, Usher, Nas, Common, 50 Cent, Bono, Method Man (Wu Tang Clan), R Kelly, Chaka Khan, George Benson and Aretha Franklin, is the recipient of nine Grammy Awards, has recorded eight multi-platinum albums (selling over 50 million albums and 15 million singles worldwide) and has received the World Music Legends Award for her success in combining hip hop and soul.

Don't miss Raggamuffin 2011. With more reggae, roots, dub, funk, soul, RnB and hip-hop and more good times it just gets better every year!
