Coney Island Reggae Beach Party: 2011 Season Sunday, July 17, and Sunday, August 14
From 2 p.m. to sundown, FREE Coney Island Boardwalk at West 19th Street
WKCR’s Eastern Standard Time and the Sound Liberation Front have joined forces again to present the 2011 season of the Coney Island Reggae Beach Party series, bringing the enormously influential culture of Jamaican sound systems back to the Coney Island Boardwalk on Sunday, July 17, and Sunday, August 14.
Building on the success of last year’s inaugural season, the free events will begin at 2 p.m. and last until sunset, and will feature live DJs, special guest artists, and fun activities for the whole family. This year the parties will take place at a new location directly on the beach at W. 19th Street (near the iconic red tower).
Each event will feature an all-star lineup of music selectors and guest vocalists curated by WKCR host Carter Van Pelt. Some notable talents who performed at last year’s events include dancehall legends Johnny Osbourne, Carlton Livingston, and Mikey Jarrett; seminal NYC sound system Sir Tommy’s; and, legendary record producer Clive Chin.
EASTERN STANDARD TIME (EST) is a Jamaican music program on WKCR (89.9 FM New York) that airs live every Saturday from 8 a.m.-12 p.m. The program, previously known as “Reggae Riddims,” has been on the air for more than 20 years and has an international following.
SOUND LIBERATION FRONT is a Brooklyn-based organization devoted to utilizing the power of music as a socially liberating and unifying cultural force. In 2009, the group organized the Sound Liberation Festival in Brooklyn. Since then, it has been active in promoting cross-cultural music to the community through innovative events and programs.
