Reggae in the Hills 2014 is the Perfect Get-Away
Tucked away in the serene Sierra Nevada foothills of northern California, Reggae in the Hills is a jam-packed three-day experience at the kick-off of June every year! It isn’t all about the music; artists, dancers and skateboarders are welcome to join the fun, since RITH offers a skatepark (complete with halfpipe), two stages and multiple live art venues in the midst of the music. And the line-up couldn’t be better: Junior Reid and the One Blood Family headlines the second night although their performance is catalyst after positive vibrations are projected from Tribal Seeds, Collie Buddz, Luciano, Fortunate Youth, Natty Vibes, Marlon Asher, and too many more to mention! Each indoor and outdoor stage offers state-of-the-art innovative technology assembled from design teams to enhance the musical extravaganza, but the staff goes even further with workshops available to the public throughout the day to not only teach music and dance, but industrial science as well.
The campsite is set in historical “Golden Country”, and it lives up to its name with waterfalls, lakes, and even a stream going through the concert grounds!
The campsite is set in historical “Golden Country”, and it lives up to its name with waterfalls, lakes, and even a stream going through the concert grounds! Although it is welcoming to RV’s, the RITH staff politely asks that no fires or pollution take place during the festival to keep one of California’s most beautiful countryside clean. Did we mention that camping and parking is free? No overnight fees are due for anyone participating, so do your rightful duty and throw your trash away in a designated receptacle.
Food is to be sold all around the event, even though most of the vendors cater to island cuisine. Don’t be alarmed if your palate is on the traditional side, for the usual hotdogs and hamburgers are still available for purchase. RITH is open to all-ages, however anyone under the age of 18 needs to be accompanied by an adult to enter into the event. Speaking of the 21+ crowd, a beer garden will be centrally-located to get your buzz on without wandering too far. And the party doesn’t stop when the headliner does - an indoor after-party follows immediately on the festival grounds and continues until 3 AM!
Between good music and good people, fire-dancers and drum circles, home-made art and interactional workshops, Reggae in the Hills is this summer’s biggest party. Three-day tickets are still being sold at www.reggaeinthehills.com or on Facebook for only $110, with the option of buying per diem or upgrading to VIP! Start your 2014 ‘endless summer’ with a festival you’ll never forget this upcoming June 13, 14 and 15th.

Local Points of Interest
We were taught that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. As true as this may be, sometimes it's difficult to find a nice restaurant, especially if you're an out-of-towner. Top Shelf Reggae has you covered and has compiled a list of local breakfast eateries sure to start off your day properly and prepare you for a day full of wonderful music. For lunch and dinner, we highly recommend eating within the fairgrounds due to tight band scheduling.
Rooms are booking up fast, so please make sure to call ahead of time to ensure room availability.
