Reggae Rise Up has announced its inaugural Reggae Rise Up Vegas festival, set to take place on April 18th-19th at the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center.
Fans will celebrate 4/20 weekend in Sin City with headlining sets by Southern California reggae-rock heavyweights Slightly Stoopid (Saturday) and Florida-based mainstays Dirty Heads (Sunday), two of the highest-grossing domestic reggae acts on the road today. Many of the other largest names in reggae music fill out the lineup, including SOJA, J. Boog, Matisyahu, Common Kings, Hirie, Collie Buddz, Fortunate Youth, The Movement, Iya Terra, Mike Love, Jessie Royal, Nattali Rize, and more.
Reggae Rise Up will present patrons with a unique and meticulously curated event that promises to be one of the most impressive genre-specific lineups Vegas has ever seen. The venue can accommodate up to 11,000 guests with state-of-the-art stages, sound, lighting and design equipment, but also provides much more. Festival attendees can expect family-friendly interactive experiences and art installations, food trucks, bar options, and a vendor village within the 120,000 square foot event center in the heart of old Vegas. Of course, being in Las Vegas also means that an abundance of off-site activities, restaurants, and lodging await attendees outside the festival grounds.
Produced by Live Nite Events, Reggae Rise Up Vegas is one of three Reggae Rise Up events. On March 20th-22nd, fans will converge on Vinoy Park in St. Petersburg for Reggae Rise Up Florida. Acts for this event include Damian ‘Jr Gong’ Marley and Nahko & Medicine for the People. Dates and artists for the 2020 edition of the third event, Reggae Rise Up Utah, have yet to be announced. Last year, the Reggae Rise Up Utah event took place at the end of August at River’s Edge Campground in Heber City. Performers included Rebelution, Dispatch, Stephen Marley, and Twiddle.
