WTJU and the IX Art Park proudly welcome Mighty Joshua with the Sons of Ichibei to the outdoor stage for the fourth of nine free concerts!
As Virginia Reggae Ambassador (2015+2016) and Artist of the Year (2014, 2015, 2016) Mighty Joshua advocates for reggae music with support of his back-up band the Zion #5 and as an acoustic configuration known as Roots Covenant. From mountain top festivals, to intimate club gigs, he invites listeners of all ages to experience the spirit of reggae. He has opened for several internationally acclaimed reggae acts including Steel Pulse, Culture w/ Kenyatta Hill, the Meditations, the Itals, and Ziggy Marley.
Sons of Ichibei, the Charlottesville VA-based duo of rappers Remy St. Clair and Fellowman, is dedicated to your destruction, decomposition, and subsequent rebirth. Whether it’s with rapid-fire flows or conceptual weight, please understand that they will break you.
FREEFALL is a free fall art & music festival every Saturday in September and October. Fantastic, “big-sound” festival bands plus art installations, food truck courts, locally-brewed beverages from Three Notch’d Brewing and Potter’s Craft Cider and a mix of community that reminds you what Charlottesville is made of.
