If you live in Philadelphia and like reggae music, then this is for you. With Spring and Summer steadily approaching, we are overjoyed to announce the following reggae concerts coming to the city. So crack one open and light one up, because this summer is about to get hot!
First on our list, we have Steel Pulse performing April 11, at the Theatre of Living Arts. What better way to kick off this summer reggae season with some classic roots reggae jams. Formed in 1975, Steel Pulse has been around for years playing traditional reggae music. Their songs are known for that classic reggae sound we all love while providing an uplifting, conscious message to the masses. Don’t miss out!
Next up, we have Sublime with Rome performing July 9, at Festival Pier. With support coming from The Dirty Heads and Tribal Seeds, this day is going to be filled with high-energy reggae rock. If you like your reggae with a little more pep in its step, than come on down and get to skankin’.
Just a few weeks later, Festival Pier will be hosting the 2016 Hemp Heals Music Festival. On July 22, 311, Matisyahu, and Suburban Sensi will be throwing it down in the sun for a great cause. In an effort to inform the public about the beneficial uses for hemp and hemp-made products, Hemp Heals looks to combine music, food, and education into one fun experience.
Last to close out the summer at Festival Pier will be Slightly Stoopid. Performing on August 20 with support coming from Soja and Fortunate Youth, this show is going to be an absolute heater. Don’t sleep on Fortunate Youth, for they have the chance to make this the one of the best reggae shows of the summer. After almost receiving a Grammy nomination in 2014 for Best Reggae Album for It’s All A Jam, Fortunate Youth has been on fire ever since. They also recently released their latest album Don’t Think Twice, so you know these boys are coming with heat this summer.
It is a rare occasion that this many reggae artists will be coming through Philadelphia in a such a short time. There is no better way to enjoy the summer than outside listening to some of the best music you can hear. If you have not gotten tickets to any of these shows listed above, now is the time. Below, we have provided all of the ticketing links to each show. The Earnuggets team shall be in attendance for all of these shows and we look forward to seeing you there. Come hang out and soak up those summer vibes with us.
