There’s a free music and culture festival today and on August 14 on the Boardwalk near the Parachute Jump. The Coney Island Reggae Beach Party gets underway at 2pm and the beat will go on till sundown. It’s the second season for the festival sponsored by WKCR Eastern Standard Time and the Sound Liberation Front:

Some notable talents who performed at last year’s events include dancehall legends Johnny Osbourne, Carlton Livingston, and Mikey Jarrett; seminal NYC sound system Sir Tommy’s; and, legendary record producer Clive Chin.
