West Islanders up for big reggae festival

Montreal’s most gifted reggae artists will take to the stage en masse next month in the Big Up, the island’s first winter reggae festival. On the local scene, “reggae bands don’t really get a lot of exposure,” mused organizer Buntin Neil of Dollard des Ormeaux, with whom the concept for the Big Up largely originated. “The idea behind the festival is to zoom in on the different bands from in and around the city,” he said, adding, “the three-day event will showcase 10 groups.”
