Gates Open At Noon on Saturday, April 16

Saturday is Day Two of the 2016 Austin Reggae Festival! Gates open today (April 16) at noon and the show continues through 10:00 pm.

The Austin Reggae Festival occurs at Auditorium Shores (800 West Riverside Dr, 78704). The entry gates for the event are located at the south end of Auditorium Shores, just off of Riverside. Parking can be difficult, so consider taking Uber or Lyft. Also be sure to check out what to bring (and what not to bring) before you head to Auditorium Shores.

If you haven’t bought your 2016 Austin Reggae Festival ticket online, then just pick one up at the gate when you arrive. Tickets are $20 per person at the gate. Reggae fans 12 years old and under are free if accompanied by an adult.

If you purchased a Three Day Wristband, then please print out your EventBrite voucher (or have it ready on your smartphone). Exchange this voucher for a wristband at either the Green Box Office or the Red Box Office.

Also, weather looks fairly stable for Saturday, April 16. But, please stay tuned to this website (as well as the Austin Reggae Fest twitter account) for any weather-related updates.
