Cleveland, Ohio will be home to the 23rd Annual Midwest Reggae Festival the next three days. Clay’s Park will be hosting the event starring SOJA, Morgan Heritage, Wailing Souls, Marty Dread, Josh Heinrichs, SkillinJah, Natural Vibrations, and plenty more talent. With space to camp and places to stay cool when the music is not playing, this fest has it all when you add the reggae music! With bands like SOJA, who have a new album on the way (Amid the Noise and Haste) and straight reggae classics from The Wailing Souls (with music from as early as the 1960s!) this weekend will be flowing with unique styles!

Making way to Humboldt County in California, Reggae on the River will be flowing with great jams all weekend long! Starting Thursday, July 31st, the artist line up includes Jimmy Cliff, Iration, Gentleman & The Evolution, Fishbone, Indubious, and much more reggae styled artists. Located at French’s Camp, there will be over 60 non-profit food and craft vendors for the four day event. The 30th Annual Reggae on the River will feature a variety of talent within our reggae genre using rock, dub, ska, and dancehall as a major influencing factor to the artist’s musical style. Not one to miss West Coast fans!

Do not worry, East Coast, we found a sweet reggae fest for you as well! On Sunday, Reggae in the Park will be jammin’ in Philadelphia with an awesome line up. Matisyahu, Steel Pulse, The Expendables, Inner Circle, Morgan Heritage, and 10+ more bands will be sharing two stages all day long! This 3rd Annual event will be held at The Mann Center for the Performing Arts and with two Grammy Award winning artists, Steel Pulse and Inner Circle, rocking out alongside top notch reggae-rock artists like The Expendables and Matisyahu, this Sunday will be the best way to end the weekend!
