Reggae Rise Up 2022—Tampa Bay's favorite reggae get-together—is back this weekend at St. Pete’s Vinoy Park. While it's not a four-day festival like last year, the eighth annual festival promises to give fans their money's worth over the long weekend.

On Friday, Rebelution headlines for Soja and Bumpin' Uglies. Slightly Stoopid, Iya Terra, and Tropidelic are featured Saturday. As for Sunday, you'd think that Shaggy would be enough until you see that Iration is the actual headliner, and not the former Sting collaborator.

So if you're not going to Innings Festival on the other side of Tampa Bay this year, don't miss this one.
