R&B legend Mary J Blige and dancehall superstar Sean Paul are among the line up announced for the 2011 New Zealand Raggamuffin festival.

Other acts include Jimmy Cliff, Maxi Priest on his second trip to the festival, The Original Wailers and Ky-Mani Marley, Bob Marley’s second youngest son.

Promoter Andrew McManus said he was proud of the line up.

“It’s a superstar bill. It’s our fourth year running and the festival continues to grow stronger with around 30,000 people attending the Rotorua concert last year.”

The annual reggae festival will be held on February 5 at the Rotorua International Stadium.

Raggamuffin 2011 will be the first ever New Zealand show for nine-time Grammy Award-winning Mary J Blige.
