Raggamuffin returns with reggae royalty

Another day, another festival announcement as the summer music season builds and builds.

This time it's reggae that is coming to our shores, with Ragamuffin 2010 bringing Wyclef Jean, Julian Marley, Shaggy and plenty more to Perth for a gig on January 25.

More than 60,000 fans have attended the festival over the past two years, with Australia's biggest reggae festival still going strong.

Headlining is Wyclef Jean, a Grammy Award-winning artist who has sold more than 30 million records and toured the world with hip hop act The Fugees and as a solo artist. He will be performing songs from his new album Music Theory.

Bob Marley's son Julian will be performing to celebrate the music and message of all the legendary family who have come before.

His soulful vocals, hypnotic beats and the roots-reggae sound combined with street energy hip-hop deliver a combination that is very much his own.

Shaggy returns, sure to bring his Oh Carolina hit, along with singalong sensations It Wasn’t Me and Angel from his album Hotshot.

Sean Kingston, Steel Pulse, Blue King Brown, Sly and Robbie, House of Shem and more round out the bill.

Tickets go on sale 9am Wednesday, October 28 through
