On May 26 and 27 (Sunday and Monday of Memorial Day weekend), UCLA hosts the JazzReggae Festival, featuring a diverse array of artists covering the pop, hip-hop, reggae and jazz arenas. Amoeba Music has tickets for sale to the event. Pick them up at the Info Counter before they’re all gone!
Taking place at UCLA’s Intramural Field, JazzReggae Festival is the largest, entirely student-produced-and-run event of its kind on the West Coast. The festival is divided into two days: the Jam Day May 26 and the Reggae Day May 27. Performers on the Jam Day will include indie dancehall-pop star Santigold, rap hero Common, underground hip-hop crew The Grouch & Eligh, R&B singer Jhene Aiko, and G.O.O.D. music affiliate and artist/producer Ryan McDermott. Reggae Day features reggae star Ziggy Marley, reggae and dancehall artists Barrington Levy and Mr. Vegas, and "Queen of Reggae" Marcia Griffiths. In addition, art exhibits and craft projects by local artists and collectives will be featured at the festival.
One-day tickets are $30 in presale, $35 the day of; and for both days, $50 in presale, $60 the day of. Deluxe tickets for $65 a day will get you access to a shaded area, complementary food, beverages and access to live video streaming. Tickets are available at Amoeba Music, as well as at ticketmaster.com and the Central Ticket Office at UCLA.
Be sure to look for the Amoeba booth on Monday May 27. We'll be selling music, T-shirts and other fun stuff and giving away Amoeba swag.
