Rebelution will headline Reggae on the Rocks, the one-day reggae festival celebrating its 31st anniversary this year.
“Our music is meant to move people physically and mentally at the same time. When people are really dancing and really thinking, that’s a double threat," says Marley D. Williams, the band's bass player, in a statement announcing the 2019 date. “It’s a ‘one love’ spirit and we’re doing it in our own style, influenced by the diversity in California and the people we were surrounded by growing up."
Also in the mix: Protoje, Collie Buddz, Morgan Heritage, the Meditations and longtime local favorite Judge Roughneck.
The festival will start at 2 p.m. Saturday, August 24, at Red Rocks Amphitheatre.
