One Love Cali Reggae Fest 2018 [Long Beach, CA]

Let’s retire the phrase “festival season is upon us,” because let’s be honest, festival season is every season! Pick any month of the year, and you’ll most likely be able to find a reason to pack your festival gear. We’re excited for this year’s One Love Cali Reggae Fest taking place in the Golden State on February 10 and 11.

California, the home of mountains, valleys, rivers and huge waterfalls–oh and palm trees. The West Coast state is known for many things including its laid-back attitude making it the perfect backdrop to reggae, a genre known for its slow pace tempo and its musical themes of love.

The third annual One Love Cali Reggae Fest features the biggest names in reggae and hip-hop. Tickets for this music fest are pretty affordable when you consider the price tag of some of today’s festivals. With tier-one single tickets starting at $70 or buying a two-day pass for $130, you can enjoy a full day’s worth of music at a reasonable price. Some of this year’s headliners include Rebelution, Iration, Atmosphere, Nas, Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals and Common Kings.

Other artists include Collie Buddz, Stick Figure, Barrington Levy, and Matisyahu. While there won’t be any parking available on-site they’ll be offering free shuttles for those who decide to park off-site, and there’s always ride-share options (Uber, Lyft and the good ol’ fashion cab ride). You can always take a look at their FAQ for additional questions you may have about the festival, as many festival websites have a section to help curate the best festival experience for all attendees.
