Are you giddy with excitement yet?!
Are you giddy with excitement yet?! Well, you should be! Utah, especially Salt Lake City, has an amazing tight-knit artist community that will help make this three-day event even more worthwhile! Some of Salt Lake City’s most prominent local reggae bands will be performing a local late night afterparty each night of the festival. There will be a variety of local breweries, food trucks, art installations, vendors and interactive experiences to participate in. You’ll feel right at home if you aren’t already part of the mountain community.
From out of town? No worries. RRUU will be the perfect balance between entertainment and nature. River’s Edge Campground is tucked away in the valley of Heber City and nestled along the Jordanelle Reservoir and Provo River. Live Nite Events chose this festival site in order to provide attendees with a secluded and naturally beautiful setting to dance around and have fun in. River’s Edge Campground is also the home of Reggae Rise Up’s sister festival, Bonanza Campout. This is the perfect setting for an all-inclusive, weekend-long music and camping festival. Camping options are still available, but onsite cabins have already sold out. Limited RV sites remain. So, be sure to book your spot at a campsite or local hotel and get your ticket soon if you want to join the fun! Want tickets? We know you do. General admission weekend tickets are currently on sale for $85, two-day tickets for $65 and single-day tickets available for $50. VIP weekend tickets are currently available for $140.
