Boomshaka 2018 Music Festival
February 19, 2018 @ 3:00 PM
Held in the birth month of legendary Jamaican singer-songwriter, Bob Marley, Boomshaka 2018 will honor the reggae genre by featuring top artists. Festival-goers will also experience a village-feel in the venue concourse, with handcrafted and one-of-a-kind artisan items for purchase. The venue features craft beers and cocktails, along with local dining options including Rockin’ Baja Lobster and Pizza Port.
The festival will feature co-headliners Tribal Seeds and Stick Figure, along with the music of The Original Wailers, Don Carlos, HIRIE, The Expanders and Aloha Radio.
Based in San Diego, rock-reggae band Tribal Seeds come at their music from a different angle, more influenced by bands like Steel Pulse and Aswad than the common touchstone of Sublime. In March 2017, Tribal Seeds won the San Diego Music Award for Artist of the Year. A new single followed, entitled “Rude Girl” which debuted among iTunes Hot Singles in the reggae genre.
Tribal Seeds will be joined by Stick Figure. The band crafts authentic artistry from the foundation of roots-dub reggae. Additional acts in the lineup include The Original Wailers featuring Al Anderson, a long-time Bob Marley bandmate; Don Carlos, a classic and well-loved reggae artist of the legendary group Black Uhuru; and HIRIE, offering a global spiritual uplift by melding the balmy island touches of its lead singer Hirie’s beloved home — Hawaii — with a feeling of irie.
