Rock'N Malta's Artistic Director, Lou Bondi commented: "Along with Bob Marley, in the 1970s Third World and Inner Circle took what could be called the folk music of their tiny island home of Jamaica and speared it to all four corners of the world. Their influence has still not subsided, and reggae remains an inspiration for many artists in the rock and pop world. We are proud to continue the Rock'N Malta tradition of dedicating one gig a year to this genre of music. And what stellar ambassadors of it we managed to get this year."
