OverJam 2018: the last day chronicles

And also the 7th edition of OverJam reggae festival had come to an end.
For RQL it was our first experience in OverJam and in Slovenia ; and we left a piece of our heart there.
The only word we can think of, when we want to describe OverJam is "Amazing" ; the organization was excellent. From the secutiry to the info point, all we found was kindness and expertise.
The artists were the real top notch of reggae scene.

The last day was blessed by a gorgeous wheather, the river has quickly become the place to stay to chill in every sense. Workshop, children's area, music and a wonderful and powerful university with Italee ; and Israel Voice (which we later saw) about the role of women in contemporary reggae music.

The last overjam night was amazing, the main stage displayed Shanti Powa followed by Brain Holidays(band from Croatia which we had the chance to interview soon before their show... So stay tuned ;)
and Italee (a strong woman, with great energy and an amazing attitude that many should take as na example) with Israel Voice, to finish with the greatly awaited  Protoje.

The dub stage instead was hosted by Dub Kali, Warrior Charge and the great OBF ft Charlie P and Sr Wilson. The last named really know how to get the crowd on fire, everyone kept dancing till the last second, I really wished the show would last longer.

The last notes filling the OverJam night were from the Dancehall stage with Hunting Sound and Warrior Sound.

Sunday morning woke us with its bitter sweet mood. While packing our gear and slowely waliking our away from  the area the recent memories filled us with joy and longing for the next edition.
Once again a big thank you from the RQL crew for the great experience, and a big big thanks to Run It agency for giving us this opportunity and for being super !

Till next year !!
