Reggae Rise Up returns to Las Vegas over the October 6th-8th weekend for its third consecutive year as the biggest names in reggae and tens of thousands of fans descend upon the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center for three action-packed days of high-rolling, heavy-hitting, festival fun! Further expanding on a rapidly growing fanbase of diehard domestic reggae enthusiasts across the country, Reggae Rise Up’s parent company Live Nite Events has committed to cultivating both a culture and community that feels more like a family than a festival. With additional festival properties in Maryland (June 23rd-25th) and Florida (March 14-17, 2024), along with a massive summer concert series in Utah, Reggae Rise Up has become the largest touring reggae promoter in the nation, with their festivals being heralded as premiere annual events in each city they take place.
As can be expected at all Reggae Rise Up festivals, Reggae Rise Up Las Vegas will feature the hottest acts in domestic and international reggae music around! In addition to the top-tier performance offering, Reggae Rise Up has become known for their world-class visual art lineups along with both their comprehensive food & beverage and craft vendor programs – offering a well-rounded fan experience and something for everyone. Top it off with all the action that Freemont Street has to offer (located just one block away from the venue) and the endless offerings and excitement of Sin City at large, and you have the perfect destination fall festival for dedicated reggae fans the world-over.
Headlining year three of Reggae Rise Up Las Vegas are three Cali Reggae classics – Slightly Stoopid, Rebelution, and Sublime with Rome – each of whom have had and an undeniable impact on the genre. Receiving equal billing in the direct spots each day – and rightfully so given their stature – are Hawaiian-based reggae-pop sensations Iration, East Coast Grammy-award winners SOJA, and Billboard #1 hip-hop reggae/rock chart-toppers Dirty Heads.
In the direct spots we begin to see this year’s bill rounded out with more hip-hop – featuring performances from lyrical legends Cypress Hill and Action Bronson (not to mention a highly-anticipated special performance by Dilated Peoples). Also sharing in direct billing each day are the Hawaii-based harmony-heavy Common Kings, soulful blues/rock singer/songwriter Citizen Cope, and modern-day-funk jam-band Lettuce.
