The Pier’s Weekend Show Locator!

Check out another edition of The Pier’s Weekend Show Locator to help make your music plans for the weekend. There are plenty of reggae rock shows, tours, and festivals below including Ballyhoo!, The Green, Sublime with Rome, J BOOG, Unwritten Law, and many more.

California is calling this weekend. Sunny skies, warm weather, rolling waves…and oh yeah, lots of reggae! Northern Cali will be rockin hard this weekend with many of our favorite bands making it out to the Left Coast.

The annual reggae and world music community celebration, Reggae On The River, returns to Humboldt County for its 31st year. This iconic festival returns for another year to French’s Camp on the Redwoods Highway (101) along the South Fork of the Eel River. ROTR brings together reggae fans for 4 full days of music and camping with all ticket sales going directly to benefit the Mateel Community Center in Redway, CA.

The party starts today at noon with multiple DJs to get things going. The bands start at 4pm with Iya Terra followed by Irie Fuse, HIRIE, and Fortunate Youth. The official opening ceremony to ROTR will be at 12:30 on Friday with the music starting promptly at 1pm with Inna Vision, Stick Figure, Katchafire, and Collie Buddz. The rest of the weekend will bring out some other big names including Tarrus Riley & Blak Soil Band and Stephen “Ragga” Marley on Saturday, and Nahko and Medicine for the People and Alborosie on Sunday. In between all the bands will be countless DJs and Sound Systems to fill the down times.

As with most festivals, ROTR offers much more than a full music lineup. This family-friendly event provides free entry for children under 12 and gives plenty of opportunities to teach the kids some important life-lessons through the on-site programs available. ROTR is going above and beyond the “Leave No Trace” movement. Make sure to take part in the garbage raffle and shows the kids how being clean not only benefits the environment, but they may even win some cool prizes at the same time. After all the hard work gathering trash around the festival ground, KidLandia will be the place to be for the kiddos to have fun the rest of the weekend. KidLandia offers tons of fun that includes Circus Nature & Their 3 Rings Of Play and plenty of creative time in the Arts & Crafts Dome. Plus, kids will have a blast playing with the Illuminated Fools Giant Puppet Troupe that can be found wandering around the festival grounds dancing to the music.

But there’s plenty more fun for the adults too. The Reggae Brew Barn can be found at the back of the concert bowl serving 8 local brews from Lagunitas, Eel River, Angry Orchard, Mendocino, and Six Rivers. If looking for something else refreshing, there will also be mimosas, fine local wine, and rum-infused Hurricanes (an old returning favorite). In addition, festival-goers will find plenty of other goodies with over 60 non-profit food and craft vendors to choose from.

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!
