Reggae Roots Festival arrives in Delaware for a weekend of live music, camping and COVID-aware entertainment
May 10, 2021
WILMINGTON, DE (May 10, 2021) – SuperNova Productions recently announced its first annual Reggae Roots music festival, which kicks off July 30 for a weekend of live music, camping, workshops, art vendors, exclusive food and parties at scenic Thousand Acre Farm; a premier waterfront location located in Middletown, DE.
In addition to a world-class lineup of Jamaican steel drum bands, reggae artists and dancehall DJs, Reggae Roots will feature shuttles, kid-friendly workshops and panel presentations by NORML. Adults can enjoy several well-stocked tiki bars, VIP parties, and ‘premium experience’ tickets with prepared meals and access to the private barn.
Dr Corbitt, founder of the event, kept the arts alive in Delaware throughout the COVID-19 pandemic by helping local artists, churches and the city of Wilmington itself to live stream events such as the Clifford Brown Jazz Festival. He writes: “After the isolation of 2020, I knew I wanted to create an event that would once again bring together families, friends, local businesses and artists in the safest way possible. We all need unity, positivity and love right now.
This is our mission with Reggae Roots. Performers and vendors are just as keen as Delaware residents to step out again after strict social distancing last summer. Headliner Jah People shares his enthusiasm for the event: “Delaware was Bob Marley’s second home. Bob lived and worked in Delaware in the early ’70s, and Jah People couldn’t be more excited to bring the timeless music of The Great Bob Marley to Delaware! Marley was all about the music and the people… were ready to carry the message and the music of Marley to where he planted his roots.
Tiana Jackson, one of the festival’s art vendors agrees: “I can’t wait to finally get back outside and enjoy some great music, great food and fun!”
Amid all the excitement, event planners are working overtime making sure the safety of festival goers is paramount at Reggae Roots. On-site COVID-19 testing will be available for free over the weekend, and staff and attendees will need to follow the rules set by the state of Delaware for social gatherings.
“Safety is an integral part of the vision we had for this festival. Thousand Acre Farm has worked closely with evolving guidelines for hosting COVID-conscious weddings and gatherings throughout 2020, and we continue to use these skills to make Reggae Roots a safe celebration of summer ” , comments Mike Hynson, owner of Thousand Acre Farm.
