Best it’s here to stay: REGGAE RISE UP

As it approaches its fifth year, it’s become very clear that Reggae Rise Up is here to stay. The reggae-rock fest serves a very specific, devoted community, which has returned the favor by selling out Vinoy Park in recent years. Pre-parties and after-shows pack nearby clubs, which means lots of bartenders get to make some extra scratch when RRU is in town. We’re interested to see how/if the fest embeds itself into other non-musical parts the community in years to come. reggaeriseup.com. —RR
