There have already been one big name announced for the 2012 Raggamuffin Festival, which kicks off in Perth on January 21. That was the unmistakable voice of UB40, Mister Ali Campbell.
But McManus Entertainment has today announced the second line-up of performers who’ll take to the stage as part of the annual (and much celebrated) reggae festival.
Topping the bill of the new additions is legendary performer Billy Ocean, whose hits are many across the past four decades – ‘Love Really Hurts Without You’, ‘Get Outta My Dreams; Get Into My Car’ and ‘When The Going Gets Tough’.
He’ll be joined by current chart sensation and son of Maxi, Marvin Priest, San Diego outfit Big Mountain (who had a hit with ‘Baby I Love Your Way’ back in the mid ’90s), British-based singer Junior Marvin and Nkulee Dube.
Tickets for Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane are on sale on Wednesday September 07.
