We are a few days away from sixth edition of the Overjam International Reggae Festival that will happen in Tolmin, Slovenia and that will start on August 15th with an Early Arrival / Warm Up Show and will end on August 19th. Alborosie, Ky-Mani Marley, Don Carlos, Dub Fx, Freddie McGregor and Richie Spice are the names that stand out between many names of great stars and newcomer artists confirmed.
Beyond the main (Yellow) stage, which will host headlining acts, on the wonderful alpine beach of the Soča river, you can find the Green Stage with selectors of reggae, ska, dancehall and dub music, from 10 o’clock in the morning until the dawn. Next to the river the new Red Stage will rise, where a lot of important sound systems and international dub music (between them, Panda Dub and Iration Steppas), jungle / D’n’B (General Levy, Numa Crew, Chopstick Dubplate ft. Aries, Jacky Murda, King Yoof, Cheshire Cat), and dancehall (Pow Pow Movement, Soul Stereo, Rakka, Jamie Rodigan and many more) artists will change over.
Overjam also hosts several workshops, the kids area, the restaurants, the stands market and the University, which will host some of the artists performing at the festival and a special guest will the golden medal of Paralympic games Martina Caironi.
