Reggae Rise Up is an annual music festival featuring several bands from the reggae rock genre. The festival was founded by Vaughn Carrick, who owns a company called Vinoy Park in St. Petersburg, Florida for a three-day concert experience. An estimated 10,000 people attend this event each year, and theyÕre all psyched to see their favorite reggae groups take the stage and perform live. If you want to be one of those 10,000, get your Reggae Rise Up tickets at StubHub.
Reggae at Its Roots
While Vaughn Carrick was spending a good amount of time in Florida, he noticed that there was a large hole where the reggae community used to be. After successfully staging an event at his home in Utah, he decided he would bring reggae back where it belonged. His idea took off because in places like Florida, there are tons of people who crave the authentic reggae sound while surfing and relaxing at the beach. It also helped that Florida is warm throughout the entire year, which brings tourists in the fall and winter months. He found the right spot in St. Petersburg and set up camp, welcoming adults and children to an event filled with music and fun. The hype about Reggae Rise Up is now spreading across the East Coast and bringing reggae lovers of all kinds together.Back to Top
