Florida’s favorite reggae festival has just announced some lineup adjustments for Reggae Rise Up Florida 2020. Originally scheduled for March 20th-22nd, Reggae Rise Up made the difficult decision to postpone the festival until the fall (October 2nd-4th) just days prior to its commencement amid the growing health concerns surrounding COVID-19. Additionally, in consideration of the lineup changes, the festival has also released new information on ticket exchange procedures for fans who would now like to swap their tickets for a different day.
While the circumstances of the rescheduling have been unfortunate, the producers of the festival have been able to keep the original lineup almost completely intact. Festival fans can rest assured that they’ll still be able to catch their favorite bands at Reggae Rise Up Florida this year including all of the originally scheduled headliners – Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Slightly Stoopid, Dirty Heads, Iration, SOJA, & Nahko & Medicine For The People. The most significant change will be a switch in Friday and Sunday’s respective programming, with all artists who were originally scheduled for Friday now performing on Sunday, and all artists originally scheduled for Sunday now performing on Friday (see event lineup poster below).
*Fans of the genre will also likely notice two artist substitutions. Due to scheduling conflicts, Trevor Hall will now be taking the place of Protoje and Kash’d Out will be taking the place of Landon Mcnamara.
Due to the changes in programming between Friday and Sunday, certain ticket holders will now be eligible to exchange their tickets for different days by visiting www.reggaeriseupflorida.com and filling out a ticket swap request form. Ticket holders will have until July 31st to complete the request.
All the following ticket types will be valid for swaps.
