The folks at the Reggae in the Hills Festival have been working tirelessly to pump up fans for this year’s three-day-long festival of music, art and dance. Posts from the event’s social media have been releasing a few of the performing artist’s names at a time, raising anticipation through the roof.
They’ve been posting show posters, sharing videos of featured artists, and hyping up the Early Bird Tickets (soon to be sold out). They’ve even added a contest for fans on Facebook to win prizes and passes to the concert, as long as the applicant is “down to party”.
With all the hype, there’s sure to be fans driving from all over the country in their campers in time for the first main stage performance starting on June 13th and ending on June 15th. Located in the Sierra Nevada foothills of Northern California, the venue provides a unique blend of nature and technology with reggae blasting through state of the art equipment complimented by rivers, waterfalls, and hiking trails.
The fusion of activities includes after-parties, a beer garden, fire dancers, drum circles, a skate park and vendors offering handcrafted goods and foods. As if all of this wasn’t enough to keep busy, there will be over 20 headliners from around the world performing throughout the weekend. Some of the featured artists are Fortunate Youth, Tribal Seeds, Natural Vibrations, Mystic Roots, and more.
As far as logistics go, tickets are for sale on the Reggae in the Hills website or Facebook and range from 3-Day passes with free camping, parking, and parties, all the way to VIP Passes with RV Camping accommodations. The event is marketed as “family friendly” and is open to all ages (under 18 must be accompanied by an adult).
