Marley brothers lead lineup at four-day Reggae Rise Up festival kicking off in St. Pete Thursday

Only Thursday tickets remain.


Reggae Rise Up was supposed to be a three-day affair, but in September organizers added a fourth day—with headliner Stephen Marley—“as a gesture of appreciation on behalf of Reggae Rise Up to all the live music fans who have remained supportive through the past year and a half of industry challenges.”

The now four-day throwdown includes more than two dozen bands playing Vinoy Park (with a few playing after shows at Floridan Social Club on select days). But if you want to go, then your only shot is Thursday since every other day is sold-out. Damian (pictured) and Stephen Marley headline separate days, but we’re really hoping to see them together one night for “All Night.”

Reggae Rise Up: Stephen Marley w/Damien Marley/Tribal Seeds/Slightly Stoopid/Soja/Dirty Heads/Iration/more. Thursday-Sunday, Oct. 21-24. $55. Vinoy Park, St. Petersburg. reggaeriseupflorida.com
