The Pier’s Weekend Show Locator!

Check out another edition of The Pier’s Weekend Show Locator for a custom list of our favorite reggae rock bands touring and playing festivals all around the country and overseas including Ballyhoo!, Atmosphere, Iration, Sublime with Rome, and many more.

If there ever was a weekend to explore the Pacific Northwest, then this is it! Reggae festivals are happening all over the region during the next 3 days including Center of Gravity Beach Festival in British Columbia, Newberry Event Music & Arts Festival and Northwest World Reggae Festival in Oregon, and the Northwest Freedom Fest and Northwest Roots Festival in the Evergreen State.

The Pier will be in attendance in beautiful Washington State for the inaugural Northwest Roots Festival. This annual event will be held at Cook’s Farm in Carnation, Washington along the Snoqualmie River. Despite being in it’s very first year, NW Roots Fest has put together a very impressive lineup with big name reggae groups will be playing side by side local favorites on two outdoor stages. There will be two full days of music including Josh Heinrichs and Skillinjah, The Steppas, Inna Vision, Ethan Tucker, Valley Green, The Hooky’s, and many more. And two nights of on-site camping included in the ticket price…this event is geared up to be a popular annual festival in the Pacific Northwest.

Washingtonians will also be treated to more outdoor reggae this weekend. The Northwest Freedom Fest will take place in La Center at Pekin Ferry. NW Freedom Fest brings numerous bands including True Press, The Chicharones, The Sindicate, and local favorites Valley Green and The Approach. After a long day of live music, food and beer, and plenty of art displays and vendors, attendees have the option for on-site temp camping to further enjoy the nighttime activities including a fireworks show.

Oregon will have two choices this weekend as well with the Newberry Event Music & Arts Festival, A “Defeat MS!” Fundraiser and the Northwest World Reggae Festival. Newberry is an annual outdoor festival that brings together bands and fans of reggae, rock, folk, and jazz to a limited-seating event made to feel more like a private party. Event founders, Doug and Gloria Watt, started the event in 2013 “To help give exposure to our local musicians, artisans, and crafters, and at the same time raise money and awareness for Multiple Sclerosis.” This year’s lineup definitely fits the bill with headliners Fishbone and featuring Inna Vision, The Steppas, and many more.

Remember to come by here every single Thursday to see what shows are going on for the entire weekend. You may also view our built-in Show Locator, where you can search by artist & view all of their upcoming shows, with options to purchase tickets for select shows!
