Vigar: Reggae Beach Fest Photos

It rained, it poured, and people danced. Just right for Reggae Beachfest, which drew hundreds despite a not so jammin forecast. Because true to the reggae spirit, all the rain did was add a little bit more soul into reggae heads who swept in from all over the island. More importantly, it brought out the limber girls in the shiny hot shorts, the only ones that really know how to dance, the ones in the videos that stand in the middle of dancehall parties and shake their butts in ways that white girls could never dream of. Reggae events are so few and far between in Taiwan, so Islandjam Reggae Beachfest proved to be a staple in bringing this community together. Carrying on the vibe created here, hopefully Taiwan won’t have to wait so long before another celebration of reggae culture. Let’s just keep our fingers crossed that the sun in shining, and the weather is sweet.
