30,000 attend Raggamuffin 2010 and over $14K goes to charity!!!!

27 January 2010 - 0 Comments

Rotorua rocked last Saturday with an audience of 30,000 people enjoying the music of some of the world's greatest reggae, hip hop, dub and soul bands.

Ms Lauryn Hills performance has been described as 'divine', Julian Marley's New Zealand debut 'inspired' and delivered with a 'charismatic stage presence ', while Shaggy 'shook the stadium' with his closing performance. Stalwarts of reggae Steel Pulse and Sly & Robbie showed why they are musical
legends and Sean Kingston proved to be a 'hot' hit for the younger audience. NZ bands Katchafire, Sola Rosa with Iva Lamkum, House of Shem and Sweet & Irie did NZ proud.

Wyclef Jean made an on-screen appearance to talk about his experience of the Haiti earthquake and his proposed performance at Raggamuffin 2011.

The promoters Andrew McManus Presents would sincerely like to thank the people of Rotorua, all the International and local bands, sponsors, and of course all of you for your support and feedback. General Manager of Event Venues Rotorua Peter McLoud said "Raggamuffin 2010 again reinforced Rotorua's standing as the reggae capital of NZ. Raggamuffin not only brings a significant economic boost to the city but also creates an exciting and vibrant atmosphere for visitors and locals alike. Rotorua continues to extend the spirit of Manaakitanga to our thousands of Raggamuffin visitors".

The Red Cross collected $8300 for Haiti on show day. Currently supplying Field Hospitals, Mobile Health Care units, Rescue Units, communications, and 500,000 litres of water per day, every cent (100%) donated to the Red Cross goes where it's needed as there are no deductions for admin costs.
$6250 was also collected via online donations for the Samoan relief fund.

The Good Water Project donated 10% of bottled water retail sales to the Sir Peter Blake Trust to support environmental education programs in NZ.
