Connection Festival

  • 311: these Omaha genre benders broke into the mainstream by fusing rap, reggae, and hard rock on their self-titled album in 1995. It went triple platinum thanks to the singles “Don’t Stay Home,” “All Mixed Up,” and “Down,” and paved the way for a decades-long career that resulted in 11 records, their own cruise, and an unofficial holiday named after them.
  • What Julian Marley shares with his father, Bob: hair, sway, inviting voice, devotion to humanitarianism, and Rastafarian spirit
  • What they don’t share: the sound of their music—Julian incorporates elements of hip-hop into his catalog, which includes “Boom Draw” and “Jah’ Works”
  • Genres Matisyahu combines: reggae, dancehall, hip-hop, and traditional Jewish themes
  • Essential tracks showing his range: the bouncing “King Without a Crown,” the anthemic “Sunshine,” and the more meditative “One Day”
  • Ballyhoo!: blending rock, pop, punk, and reggae in the vein of 311 and Sublime, this quartet of Maryland Warped Tour vets is the aural equivalent of Bob Marley kick-flipping over a dozen flaming school buses
  • Other main-stage acts: New York Ska-Jazz Ensemble | Whole Wheat Bread | Stank Sauce | Skywater
  • On the second stage: Jah Elect and the I Quality Band | Cloud9 Vibes | Askmeificare | Holey Miss Moley | Yamadeo | Herd of Watts | Wester Joseph’s Stereo Vudu
