The Pier’s Weekend Show Locator!

From coast to coast, we’re back with another edition of The Pier’s Weekend Show Locator. Lets get your plans started for the weekend by viewing a list of shows for this Friday, Saturday & Sunday. If you see a show listed in a city/state that you have friends or family, send them a link and encourage they go to the local Reggae-Rock show!

The party returns to Central Florida again this weekend for a 2nd year with a jam-packed day of the best reggae, roots, surf, and world music. Downtown Tampa will greet festival-goers with the perfect weather and lots of fun for the whole family. Get ready for plenty of music, warm sunny days, and lots of outdoor waterfront fun.

Chillin Music Fest 15 is an independent boutique music festival on the banks of the Hillsborough River at Curtis Hixon Water Front Park. The festival benefits Chillin’ For Kids, a non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening and empowering children and their families battling life-threatening medical conditions. There’s lots to do at the park and surrounding Waterfront Arts District with the venue located adjacent to the Tampa Riverwalk and numerous museums and art galleries. The pet-friendly park has a dog run, mister water features, fountains, playground, outdoor sculptures, lots of grassy areas to lounge, and an amphitheater that will feature the Chillin’ Unplugged Stage, which is newly added for this year.

Speaking of music, the Chillin’ crew put together a serious lineup with a diverse mix of reggae, alternative, and world music.

“We hand pick each of our national artists with a requirement that each artist’s style creates the type of vibe that either makes you want to jump up and sing along with them or just completely chill and sway to the beats,”
– Scott Bush, CEO of Chillin’ Music Festival

To make that happen, this year’s lineup features jamband headliners O.A.R. and big name reggae rock groups Stick Figure and Ballyhoo!. Music kickoffs Saturday afternoon at 1:10pm with Unmotivated followed by Resinated, The Supervillains, Hor!zen, and Makua Rothman.

“We’ll also have the incredibly cool vibes of Makua Rothman performing,” Bush said. “He has reached fame as the No. 1 surfer in the world (WSL) and No. 1 big wave rider in the world, following in the musical footsteps of another Hawaiian favorite, Jack Johnson.”
– Scott Bush, CEO of Chillin’ Music Festival
