Reggae Rise Up Florida 2022: Day One

It had been a short five months since the last Reggae Rise Up Florida, yet the festival still managed to kick off their 2022 event with the energy and excitement that radiates from Vinoy Park each year! Music, art and community merged together with the Tampa Bay, with the scenic backdrop of St. Petersburg, Florida.

Day One RRUF22 was one for the books!

Reggae Rise Up Florida newcomers, such as Will Evans, graced the stage, while the legendary Steel Pulse headlined the Vibes Stage before Rebelution — a crowd favorite year after year — closed out the first day of the festival. The fun never has to stop when the gates close, however! Bumpin Uglies kept the party going at the official after party, with some special guests and friends making appearances onstage, as well. There’s two more action-packed days to go, but enjoy some of the highlights from Day One above!
