Review: Raggamuffin, day one

By Kristin Macfarlane

Day one of Raggamuffin 2013 is done and dusted.


DJ sir-vere kept crowds entertained in between sets and even brought out some of his friends to help him out.

Sweet and Irie, Monsta and Swiss all jumped on stage during his performances, much to the delight of the thousands of Friday night Raggamuffin-goers.


The crowd was enthusiastic and receptive to each performer.

Those in the crowd who didn't know Gappy Ranks before were left with a long lasting first impression.


When The Black Seeds performed their set it was obvious many in the crowd had come to see them. They were energetic and entertaining.

Then there was the final act of the night - Common Kings. They were the obvious crowd favourite performing covers of some old school classics and more.

But it was their hits such as Alcoholic, Wade in Your Water and No Other Love that really pumped the crowd.

Common Kings were interactive, enthusiastuc and could sing providing a high class performance.

I can't wait for day two.
