For its 29th edition this year, Reggae on the River, returns home to its original French’s Camp venue (after several years at nearby Benbow Lake), on a winding bend of the South Eel River in California’s Humboldt County. Big names from the reggae world on this year’s edition include Tarrus Riley, Anthony B, Morgan Heritage, J Boog, Julian Marley, Chronixx, Kabaka Pyramid and Rootz Underground. Notable names from outside of it include French soul queens Les Nubians and Belizean/Guatemalan punta band, the Garifuna Collective. Due to the fest’s remote location, overnight camping is recommended.
