Just when we thought we were out of breath with blasting another Reggae festival, here comes Utah’s 2-day Reggae Rise Up Music Festival this July and like the more recent festivals, it’s boasting a SLAMMIN’ line-up!
Utah’s Reggae Rise Up festival is taking place Saturday July 12th & Sunday July 13th at Liberty Park in Salt Lake City, Utah. Rain or shine, this festival is all ages & features 18 total groups & artists. This is the 5th Reggae Rise Up Festival and they expect more than 15,000 in attendance. The festival will include cuisine from local Utah eateries, breweries as well as local artists to round out the experience!
Saturday Lineup: (1:00pm – 11pm)

Tribe of I
Here is Sunday Lineup: (12pm – 10pm)

This a great line-up & there’s a lot of new music to be heard starting with Matisyahu. He has his new album, Akeda, that just dropped on June 3rd. Stephen Marley is getting ready to release a new album, Revelation Pt 2: The Fruit Of Life, at any time as we all hope to hear new music from that forthcoming release. The Expendables have a new album rumored to drop in the fall & Slight Stoopid’s name alone is enough to attract the entire western hemisphere to the event!
I know we’ve been posting a lot of articles on Reggae-Rock festivals and if you’re an artist or band that’s reading this, I hope you’re taking note to get in contact with these festival promoters early and schedule your group to perform at one of these summer festivals. It’s the best place to network as EVERYONE shows up for a festival, because as a fan, you get to see all your favorite bands under one bill under a more lasting impression with 2-day festival!
Currently, there are 2 day passes available for $40 but there are only a limited quantity available. Limited single day passes are also available for $25 & with that said, you can purchase your tickets at ReggaeRise.com or by clicking HERE!
