The 2016 Reggae Fest Chicago One Day One Love concert was a preview of great things to come. Reggae Fest producers are taking their “Island time” establishing more local collaborations, recruiting ideal sponsors, and using 2017 to curate an extraordinary THREE DAY music festival in 2018 with the best in contemporary reggae, ska, reggaeton, Caribbean dance hall, and world music. All positive vibrations!
The 2018 event will feature reggae legends, new up and comers, the best Dj selectors, local, national, and international talent will create a diverse reggae line up of the best in the genre. The 2018 event will also include food, beer, island drinks, kids sports and crafts activities, live art making, handmade artisans and free trade vendors – all with an emphasis on Caribbean style and flavor. A percentage of event proceeds will benefit local non-profit A Safe Haven.
Reggae Fest Chicago is co-produced by Optimum Events LLC and Subterranean. Other successful Chicago events produced by members of this team include Do Division Street Fest, West Fest, Wicker Park Fest, Green Music Fest, Pilsen Food Truck Social, and Logan Square Food Truck Social.
