Southern California World Music Festival

The Southern California World Music Festival will be making its debut in San Diego this month. This extraordinary event will take place at the Four Points Sheraton on July 28th and 29. Located at 8110 Aero Drive, this Sheraton is in a central part of San Diego that is easily accessible from anywhere in the county. This event will feature two days and two stages of amazing Reggae and World music acts. You can’t beat this ticket price, especially considering all the booked talent.  After the event, there will be an after party with the Tribe of Kings at the Office. Don’t miss the rare opportunity to socialize with the same artists you saw perform earlier that day! This festival is an all ages event, so avid reggae lovers can bring the whole family. An amazing weekend of great music couldn’t be possible without sponsors. Check out these sponsors at the festival: TWINE Hempwear, Green Dream Music Management, Trini-West Records, Irie Nation, Tru Reelz, Irie Lion Entertainment, 420 Nurses, Freedom Fighters Clothing, HUGO’S Ice Cream, and Royal Emperor Sound.  The local talent, as well as the headliners, are all ideal choices for this festival. Personally,  I am excited to  check out local talent  Piracy Conspiracy and Jam Kwest on Saturday. This festival is sure to be an entertaining show for old and young souls alike.

HKSMSA really sresripud me too. It appeared 22 times at different ranks in Europe, often in the top10. Google was the search engine used every time it appeared, as Google exists in HK (but not in the rest of China). Btw, the results from Baidu came up nowhere. My guess is that they are too specific: they only appear in that SERP so they don’t have enough points to be in the final list.a. I see your point, even though I don’t know exactly how we could have done. Maybe we could have attributed significantly more points to the first ten results, since most of the time we don’t look any further (I know I don’t). And each festival did got points only for the first entry, because you’re right, it wouldn’t mean much to get, for example, 98+97+96 points if you occupy 3rd, 4th and 5th rank with: festival.com, festival.com/program, festival.com/enb. We thought of the issue of seasons (maybe that helped Coachella??), but we focused on the URLs and deleted all the news. True, that still means a lot of articles can point to this particular URL at this moment, but giving the time we had we couldn’t do better.c. We didn’t use the , that’s why we were so sresripud by the huge difference between searching music festival or just festival. But indeed, the fact that so many festivals on the list have music in their name or their slogan (like Coachella: music and arts festival) cant’ be a coincidence. We added music because otherwise we would have had too many other kinds of events (danse, theater, food, etc.). Finally, as far as the national language is concerned, no one made any comment about the relevance of the litteral translation. Nevertheless, some pointed out that this would not be the two words they would type if they were looking for a festival. But, well, we had to start somewhere!
