The rage behind this season’s calendar of music festivals and concerts has placed island reggae on a new tier of exposure and demand. From Sammy J’s debut U.S tour, the Climax Tour, to the fourth annual Island Reggae Festival that hosted a plethora of reggae bands and artists from all over the world, there is no doubt that the once-foreign sound has now earned a respectable title in the industry.
The Bay Area Vibez Festival further praises the renovated sound of island music with an ‘urban lifestyle music festival that celebrates diversity through live music and the arts’. With Oakland as the host city, this years Vibez Festival ‘embodies the true essence of the San Francisco Bay Area’ in a way that no other festival has been able to accomplish – infusing old school rap, new school dubstep with the good vibes of urban islander reggae. This, my friend is the new-new.
The kings of trap music, BassNectar, will excite the crowd with ridiculous bass and tremor after taking them through the streets of Jamaica with Stephen and Damian Marley. We’re also thrilled to see J Boog, Fiji and Morgan Heritage perform once again yet on an entirely different platform.
The Vibez are ready to explode in the O on September 26th and 27th, and we want to make sure that you are there to experience the madness! Tickets are being sold on site at bayareavibez.com! Buy your tickets today and join us at Middle Harbor Shoreline Park!
