The Pier’s Weekend Show Locator!

It is another weekend full of festivals but this edition of The Pier’s Weekend Show Locator found more than just that. Check out the full list below for Collie Buddz, SOJA, others making the festival rounds; plus all the Summer Tours in full swing like The Expanders, Jon Wayne and the Pain, Fayuca, and Mike Pinto.

Lake Tahoe Reggae FestivalThe South Shore will be rockin’ this weekend when the Lake Tahoe Reggae Festival returns for its third year to South Lake Tahoe, Nevada. Of course we are excited for the lineup but this year’s event introduces a whole new venue and kickoff summer concert series to the growing South Shore entertainment scene.

Thanks to a new partnership between Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and PR Entertainment, South Lake Tahoe has a new summer concert series coming through with multiple shows plus a new venue to help locals enjoy the beautiful weather and get outdoors. The 3rd Annual Lake Tahoe Reggae Festival will take place this Saturday at the new Hard Rock Hotel Outdoor Arena. The hotel parking will be converted into a temporary outdoor amphitheater with seating for 7,500 fans which event organizers expect to sell out. The Hard Rock Outdoor Arena will be host a number of upcoming shows under the BaseJam Summer 2015 Outdoor Concert Series, kicked off by this weekend’s Reggae Festival and extending through Labor Day weekend.

And what better way to kick off a new summer concert series than with a hefty lineup of some of today’s top bands all playing on one day? The Lake Tahoe Reggae Festival has definitely put together a lineup worthy of this goal. This year’s co-headliners, Iration and Matisyahu, will be followed up by a number of heavy hitters including The Expendables, The Green, Fortunate Youth, Vokab Kompany, Squarefield Massive, and the reggae legend Don Carlos. Doors open at 12 noon and music starts promptly at 12:15; make sure to check the full list of set times below so you do not miss out on any of the music!

With over 10 hours of music scheduled throughout the day, many fans will find it necessary to stay the night. Luckily, the new Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Lake Tahoe will make that a very easy decision! The Hard Rock Lake Tahoe is a newly renovated hotel in the heart of South Lake Tahoe, minutes from the lake and ski lifts. The January 2015 grand opening celebrated in true rock-n-roll style with an ice-guitar smashing and plenty of live music after the facility received about $60 million in renovations. The Hard Rock will give fans even more music experiences and plenty of other fun after the festival with a huge casino offering slot machines and table games, multiple restaurants and bars, indoor and outdoor live entertainment, rock ‘n’ roll memorabilia, and the world famous retail store. And if you need a little relaxation just head outside for the largest outdoor pool experience in South Lake Tahoe with clear cool water, poolside beverages, and cabanas or day beds.

Between the brand new facilities, the new outdoor venue, and all the outdoor beauty that Lake Tahoe is known for, there is something for everything this Saturday at the Lake Tahoe Reggae Festival. Enjoy the music, the sun, and most of all have fun!
