View Full Version : Reggae Sunsplash 1984 - memorabilia/memories

27-08-2015, 04:33 PM
Hi, I am a BBC producer/director and we're running a project to collect people's music memories from British popular music cultures. I'm keen to see if anyone has saved any photos/ticket stubs/footage/other ephemera from the Reggae Sunsplash festival on 7 July 1984 in Crystal Palace football stadium. Does anyone have memories of that day or know someone who does? If so, I would love to speak with you about taking part in the project and you can DM me here. Thanks for taking the time to read, Zoe

There's a bit about Sunsplash on here, Zoe

Also, more reggae chitchat here:

This, thread linked as well, with a few memories and clips

I believe Palace co-chairman Steve Browett is a big fan... his account on here is CPFC2010, might be worth asking him.

I was there in 1985 - as per the last link in the post above. That's all.

I wasn't there, but I like Aswad. I hope that helps.

I was there, can remember Sly and Robbie playing but that's about it!

I went as well. Yes, Sly and Robbie, Third World, Gregory Isaacs, Maxi Priest. Good day out, I still have the programme at home in a draw. I don't remember taking any photos. Considering how multi racial South London is, I still think the crowd was quite white, don't know why! Perhaps I'm wrong?
