Bluesfest 2007 was for me a little uninspiring in terms of lineup.
Howver,that does tend to gravitate you into watching something you do not normally watch.
So I watched Ziggy Marley.
And found him to be one of the highlights of my festival.
Great to see him back.

Can't say I agree with you about the lineup that year, I thought it was great.
However I do remember walking back into town that night.
Light drizzle, just enough to cool you down and everyone around us was chanting Ziggy, Ziggy, Ziggy.
One of those things that sticks.

I'd agree with Ranger about the 2007 lineup, but on paper only. In person, it proved to be one of my favourites yet. Funny how it works out.

Saw Ziggy that year and enjoyed the show. Found Damian more exciting perhaps, but that's a matter of taste. Nowadays, I've kind of lost interest in reggae (although some branches of ska and rocksteady are still of interest), so I'd be found in another tent when Ziggy was on, having been there, done that.

But I think reggae lovers (and particularly those who liked his old man's stuff) who haven't seen him before should be pretty satisfied with what he does. Mind yuo, there are plenty of others on the board who have more to contribute than I do when it comes to reggae and ska artists.

The Thursday 2007 list was.

Mojo
Wolfmother
John Mayer
Ben Kweller
Arakwal Opening Ceremony

Crossroads
Ziggy Marley
Lee Scratch Perry
Terrance Simeon & The Zydeco Experience
Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars

Jambalaya
The Black Sorrows
Tony Joe White
Dallas Frasca
Fiona Boyes & The Fortune Tellers

Apra
Kurtis and the Element
The Re-mains
Sara Tindley & The Kingfishers
Juzzie Smith
Will Conner
Tanzi
Dennis Wilson
Slim Pickens & Dr Baz

For me,the 19 artists so far announced for 2012,are somewhat more interesting than the 20 artists on the 2007 list.
In 2007 Crossroads,the same four acts played the last four spots in the same order on both Thursday and Friday.
Which reminds me of 8 Ball Aitken who played in Apra on Friday and Saturday,complete with colourful suits.
I enjoyed his sets.
