Tis the season for Thanksgiving hangovers and food comas, but as the holidays approach that also means music festival season is right around the corner and a plethora of lineups will soon be revealed. Perhaps none more appealing than the 2018 installment of Reggae Rise Up Florida featuring a headliner trio of Rebelution, Damian “JR GONG” Marley and SOJA.
Now entering its 8th year, Reggae Rise Up will once again be returning to the lovely Vinoy Park in St. Petersburg, Florida from March 16-18. For those who aren’t aware, Reggae Rise Up has established itself as one of the leading reggae music festivals that fans can indulge in and enjoy on a yearly basis, in addition to gaining attention and notoriety across all music festivals in general. They’re known for hosting year-round events as well as Festivals taking place in both Floriday and Utah. Further, the festival historically has been a two-day feature, but with the momentum and positive reviews in previous years the Reggae Rise Up Team has been able to expand to three days. In addition to the top-notch headliners, the lineup features an epic supporting cast as well:

Vinoy Park will host plenty of merchandise booths for fans and attendees to enjoy in their “vendor village” as well plenty of food truck and additional options to grab some grub. Festival-goers will have plenty of chances to quench their thirst, as RRU has noted that there will be more beer options scattered throughout the festival grounds this year than they’ve previously supported – there will also be full bars with liquor.
Aside from a bit of an earlier start on Saturday with the expanded lineup, gates will open around 1pm each day and close up at 10pm. As was the case in previous years, there is unfortunately no camping allowed at Vinoy Park due to city code stipulations, however there are plenty of hotel options available and attendees can check out all information and deals on the official website listed below.
Three days of epic music, good eats and drinks, sun (or sunburn) and memories that will last a lifetime. What’s not to love!? Grab your buddies and your tickets today by clicking HERE!
