A reggae rock lover travels the world and back for events that incorporate all their favorite artists. Imagine having virtually all reggae artists — from Jamaican reggae to island reggae to Cali reggae and back — all in one place. In one weekend. We cannot stress enough that this is the case for One Love Cali Reggae Festival. Taken over by Goldenvoice for the second year, One Love Cali Fest has grown from a friendly shindig at The Observatory in Santa Ana to an overflowing three-day reggae rock extravaganza on the breezy coast of Long Beach, nestled right at the Queen Mary shipliner. It doesn’t get much better than that February 7th-9th, 2020.
Or, does it? When we say ‘overflowing’, we literally mean there isn’t any room for more. There isn’t any more, at least, band-wise. Don’t believe us? Peep this 5th Annual lineup that just dropped this week in alphabetical order:
