Reggae Rise Up announced the addition of a fourth day to the festival, happening Oct. 21-24, with reggae legend Stephen Marley headlining the Thursday’s lineup. The Grammy-award winning artist, and Bob Marley’s son, plays after California singer J Boog, and Florida bands Kash’d Out and Reefers.
The fourth day was added “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,” a release stated. (Like most fun things in 2020, last year’s dates were cancelled.)
Stephen’s brother, Damien “Jr. Gong” Marley headlines Friday night with Slightly Stoopid, Matisyahu, and local favorite Ries Brothers among some of the other acts throughout the fest.
Though Saturday and Sunday tickets are sold out, Thursday and Friday spots are still available. Tickets are $50 to $85 and kids under eight are free.
If you have a ticket from last year’s cancelled show, contact the organizers at [email protected] for information on how to get a new wristband—2020’s will not be accepted.
