Fiji’s first reggae music festival is shaping up to be a big event.
Fiji Gold Reggae Festival 2022 this Saturday will feature Ouvacast – Nadi’s only band, Native Vibrations, 4 Quarters, Sweet Sensation, 9pm Band, Rhapsody, Rhythms FJ, DJ Christonite and Navua based outfit, Bitz n Pieces.
Bitz n Pieces frontman Moji Mistry said his gang had been preparing for the show for a few months.
“We’ve played a few big events like Uprising Music Festival and Kulturefest in Lautoka but everyone is looking forward to this show as it’s the first real big reggae festival in Fiji,” he said.
“Bitz N Pieces have been together for five years and although we are based in Navua we have performed in venues across Fiji.
“We have an exciting set list with a good mix of old and new hits to cater for all age groups.
“So whether you like old school reggae or something a little more modern, we’ve got a song for you.”
Mistry said they are also bringing in former Exodus frontman Freddy Moore as a guest artist. Moore fronted Exodus, one of Fiji’s first reggae bands, in the early 80s.
The band had huge success with their original compositions including ‘Monkey Man’ and ‘Fantasy’.
The Fiji Gold Reggae Festival 2022 will be held this Saturday at Buckhurst Bidesi Grounds, Suva. The Fiji Times is a sponsor of the event.
