Santa Barbara based reggae / world / rock group Rebelution is set to attack the music festival circuit this summer with six scheduled appearances, with more to be announced, at various festivals across the country. Their itinerary includes: Summer Camp Music Festival (founded by the band Moe and featuring STS9, The Avett Brothers, Pretty Lights and Slightly Stoopid) in Chillicothe, IL; Wakarusa Festival (The Black Keys, Widespread Panic and The Disco Biscuits) in Ozark, AR; Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival (Dave Matthews Band, Stevie Wonder, Kings of Leon, Jay-Z) in Manchester, TN; the 32nd Annual Harmony Festival (Lauren Hill, Slightly Stoopid) at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa, CA; Lollapalooza (Green Day, Lady Gaga, Jimmy Cliff); and the 14th Annual All Good Music Festival (Further, Umphrey’s McGee) in Masontown, West Virginia. This will be the second time Rebelution has performed at The Harmony Festival, and the first time for the five additional festivals.
