One of Long Beach’s most beloved music festivals, Cali Vibes, is returning to Downtown early next year with three days of music by acts that have defined Southern California’s music landscape for decades.
Cali Vibes will kick off on President’s Day Weekend, Feb. 16 to 18, at the waterfront venue Marina Green Park, with over 45 artists performing on multiple stages.
The Goldenvoice-produced festival features a lineup stacked with dozens of high-hitting reggae acts, a mainstay of the festival’s former name, One Love Cali Reggae Fest, before it was rebranded in 2022. But the lineup also includes major hip-hop, rap, ska and rock artists.
Returning names include Slightly Stoopid, Rebelution and Sublime with Rome, who will be performing the album “40 Oz. to Freedom” in its entirety. The lineup also pays homage to the 50th anniversary of hip-hop with Ice Cube, Too $hort, Wiz Khalifa and other genre pioneers.
But for its third year, Cali Vibes will be embarking on a first with a Saturday performance from Gwen Stefani as the festival’s first female headliner. Fresh from his win on the latest season of ABC’s “American Idol”, singer-songwriter William “Iam” Tongi is also on the lineup, though Golden Voice has not yet assigned specific days or timeslots to non-headlining acts.
Ticket sales begin at 11 a.m. Friday, Oct. 27. Three-day admission tickets start at $299.00 while three-day VIP tickets start at $495.00 plus fees. To register for early access to passes, click here.
