The 35th installment of Reggae on the River in Northern California returns to the south fork of the Eel River in Southern Humboldt County for three days of reggae, camping and irie vibes. This iconic festival brings together international headlining musical acts August 2-4, plus onsite camping, festival attractions and direct-to-consumer cannabis sales from Humboldt County’s legendary family weed farms.

Held at the beautiful County Line Ranch in Piercy, California, this year’s festival will mark the return of Reggae on the River following a six-year hiatus. Confirmed 2024 headliners include Anthony B, Konshenz, Capleton and the Prophecy Band, J Boog, Collie Buddz, DeMarco, Stylo G, Skarra Mucci, Lila Ike ft. Wurl Sound, Lutan Fyah, Chuck Fenda, Sister Nancy, Chezidek, Marlon Asher, Pressure Busspipe, Iba Mahr, Perfect Giddimani, Boomyard ft. Yaadcore and Yaksta, plus a late-night DJ dance party on the river, and more! 

Founded in 1984, Reggae on the River has grown into one of the longest running and most beloved events on the global reggae scene, while always maintaining a “homegrown” community vibe. Organized by Humboldt County’s Mateel Community Center (in conjunction with Hot Milk Entertainment)—and still run as a local non-profit with no corporate involvement—Reggae on the River has evolved over the last forty years to draw crowds of up to 15,000 people while featuring international headliners like The Marley Brothers, Toots & the Maytals, Burning Spear, Jimmy Cliff, and Steel Pulse.

Music will run from noon till late night on three stages, including a stage where attendees can listen while swimming in the Eel River.


Beyond the music, this will be the first Reggae on the River held in the age of cannabis legalization, and for the first time will feature an official “cannabis zone” powered by Humboldt’s own Cannifest, where adults can purchase and consume cannabis products direct from the Emerald Triangle’s legendary farmers.

“Humboldt County has long been known for growing the country’s best outdoor, organic cannabis while pushing back against the government’s misguided prohibition against this beneficial plant,” says Christina Augustine, Vice President of the Mateel Community Center. “This year’s Reggae on the River is the perfect opportunity for people to come and enjoy our local produce and culture while enjoying world-class music and camping out under the stars.”

A fully family-friendly event (children under 12 admitted free with an adult), Reggae on the River also highlights local food, drinks, crafts, art and vendors. TICKETS AVAILABLE HERE
