The music photography magazine review of

Seasplash festival

Review and photography ~ David Gasson

The Reggae / Dub / Roots music and the Sound system culture returned to Fort Punta Christo in Pula last weekend for the the 16th Seasplash festival. The festival was again relaxing with many taking advantage of the free camping and the great weather, apart from the 30 minute storm on Saturday night. The festival once again offered a great mixture of music with a wide range of styles and genre as well as yoga and several workshops taking place throughout the event.

Thursday ~ Raggalution

The festival got off to a great start when the first band , Raggalution  took to the main stage and set the standard for some inspiring and high energy performances .The Slovenian Reggae fusion band mixed it up with their own unique dub, funk and traditional  Reggae tracks.
