REGGAE RISE UP ANNOUNCES NEW DATES FOR 2020 FESTIVAL AT DOWNTOWN LAS VEGAS EVENTS CENTER, OCTOBER 24-25

Adjustments made to performance times as tickets go back on sale; livestream concert announced for this weekend

Today, Reggae Rise Up announced new dates for the inaugural music festival, now scheduled to take place October 24-25, 2020 at Downtown Las Vegas Events Center.

 

Live Nite Events made the decision to postpone the live music event due to the growing health concerns surrounding COVID-19. While the circumstances of the rescheduling were unfortunate, event producers have been able to keep the original lineup completely intact. Festival fans can still catch their favorite bands including Slightly Stoopid, Dirty Heads, SOJA, J. Boog, Matisyahu, Common Kings and many more.

 

In a change of original plans, all artists who were originally scheduled for Saturday will now perform on Sunday and all artists originally scheduled for Sunday will now perform on Saturday (see event lineup poster below).

 

Any single-day ticket holders who wish to exchange their tickets for the alternating day can visit www.reggaeriseupvegas.com and fill out a form to request the change. Additionally, an email will be sent to all ticket holders with a direct link to the ticket exchange form. Ticket holders have until July 31 to complete the change request.

 

All ticket types are now back on-sale with Tier 2 GA Weekend currently start at $100 and VIP Weekend start at $170. Tier 2 Single-Day GA and VIP tickets go on-sale starting at $55 and $90, respectively (Ticketing Fees, Tax and Shipping not included)

As the event was originally scheduled for this weekend, festival coordinators will bring the reggae fun to viewers at home with an all-day livestream event scheduled for Monday, April 20. The online event will feature live performances and programming from many of the artists that the festival features regularly on its lineups. More information on the Reggae Rise Up 420 Live Stream Cypher will be made available later today on all of Reggae Rise Up’s social media platforms.

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.

Formed by four friends in Oahu in 2009, The Green blends roots reggae with traditional Hawaiian vibes, creating an unmistakable island sound that has brought multiple awards and critical acclaim to the rhythmic group. Made up of soulful singer Caleb Keolanui, often referred to as the “harmony master,” guitarist J.P. Kennedy, who contributes powerful and captivating vocals, keyboardist and vocalist Ikaika Antone, and singer and guitarist Zion Thompson, the group harmoniously masters vocals and instruments.

The Green is currently promoting the release of their recent album, Hawai’i ’13, which has been met with rave reviews by critics. Their self-titled debut album, The Green, reached number three on the Billboard’s Reggae Chart and remained in the Top 10 for 25 weeks.

For both shows, The Green will be joined by the soulful, fun-loving Common Kings, whose head-rocking beats, infectious rhythms, and emotive melodies create a dynamic and impassioned sound. Producing phenomenal pop hits infused with their love for Polynesian roots; rock, reggae, and R&B influences; the Common Kings create a live show that is as soothing as it is exhilarating.

The group’s impressive resume includes sold-out shows in Hawaii, Los Angeles, Guam, Tokyo, and Australia, a dedicated legion of fans, and more than seven million YouTube views of their independently produced hits, including “Alcoholic,” “Wade In Your Water,” “No Other Love,” and “Fly.”
