Reggae Legends, Israel Vibration, Join the 34th annual Reggae on the River Festival in Humboldt County, CA August 3-5, 2018


Additional Artists of the Iconic Music and Culture Celebration Announced


REDWAY, CA - High Times Productions, the event-management team for High Times Media in partnership with the Mateel Community Center, announced new lineup additions for this year’s iconic Reggae on the River festival which will be held on August 3-5, 2018 in Piercy, CA (near Garberville in Southern Humboldt County) and includes music and camping.

Reggae legends Israel Vibration will join Iration, Mavado, Morgan Heritage, Busy Signal, The Original Wailers, Arrested Development, Don Carlos, Bambaata Marley, Cham, Wailing Souls, and Hempress Sativa, who will perform across the three-day gathering. More artists are yet to be announced.

General Admission, VIP, and camping passes are on sale via the ​Reggae on the River website​.

Through a strategic partnership announced earlier this year, High Times has joined forces with the Mateel Community Center to elevate this cultural landmark to new heights. Providing both resources and direction, the cannabis icon will implement the best practices it has amassed through its years of successful event production to create a world-class experience for Reggae fans and the surrounding community.

“High Times is pleased to announce the inclusion of Iration, Mavado and Busy Signal as headliners of this legendary event,” said Adam Levin, CEO of High Times Media. He mentioned earlier, “This event is a cornerstone of the Northern California community, and High Times could not be more excited to help present this year’s festivities. This year’s show will be bigger and better than ever!”



The festival was birthed in 1984 as a fundraiser for the Mateel Community Center in Redway and held on land owned by the Arthur family. Originally, it was a one-day musical event to raise money to replace Mateel’s hall, which had been destroyed in a fire. This developing partnership with High Times has provided the center with resources to continue growing and expanding the festival’s reach.

High Times has assumed all responsibility for the upcoming festival’s talent lineup, marketing, and monetization efforts. The brand is also providing the Mateel Community Center with expertise from its long and successful production history, ensuring that the festival is on par with what the industry has come to expect from its premier
brand.

High Times produces a series of Cannabis Cup events annually as well as several other lifestyle and music events tied to High Times magazine, the oldest and best-known brand in the business of legalized marijuana. Given their production chops, knowledge of the landscape, and successful history in both events and media, High Times was the perfect partner for the Mateel Community Center. “Reggae on the River marks an important step for High Times Production to manage a broader music event not explicitly tied to the legal cannabis industry,” Levin said.
