 Reggae fans, it’s time to kick back and jam out! Downtown Las Vegas Events Center will host the all-new Reggae Rise Up Vegas (RRU VEGAS) festival, taking place April 18-19. The two-day music extravaganza includes headlining performances from SoCal reggae-rock stars Slightly Stoopid and Dirty Heads.

Tickets go on-sale Monday, December 9th, with Tier 1 GA Weekend starting at $90 and VIP Weekend starting at $160. Tier 1 Single-Day GA and VIP tickets go on-sale for $50 and $85, respectively.

Promising a weekend of positive vibes and unforgettable performances, RRU Vegas will feature an impressive list of reggae all-stars including SOJA, J. Boog, Matisyahu, Common Kings, Hirie, Collie Buddz, Fortunate Youth, The Movement, Iya Terra, Mike Love, Jessie Royal, Nattali Rize and more.

Festival attendees also can expect a variety of art installations, bar options, food trucks, a vendor village and additional interactive fan experiences suitable for all ages.

Based out of the Ocean Beach neighborhood of San Diego, Slightly Stoopid describes their music as “a fusion of folk, rock, reggae and blues with hip-hop, funk, metal and punk.” Since forming more than 15 years ago, they have released thirteen albums with hits including “Top of the World” and “2 A.M.”, all while touring the globe and making lifelong fans along the way.

Exploding onto the Huntington Beach music scene in 2006, Dirty Heads has made a habit out of delivering unique beats and distinct sounds by way of truly creative reggae-rock. Over the years, the five-piece group has shared the stage – and recording booth – with some of the genre’s most influential artists. After releasing the mega-hit “Lay Me Down” with vocalist/guitarist Rome Ramirez of Sublime With Rome in 2010, the group continues to develop their sound while delivering high-energy sets for fans of all kinds.
