Yerba Buena Gardens Festival 2017 | SF

Between May and October in 2017, the Yerba Buena Gardens Festival presents over 75 free performances on three outdoor stages in Yerba Buena Gardens.

Admission is free and entertainment includes music, theater, dance, cultural events, educational and children’s programs.

Fronted by the incandescent Berkeley-raised vocalist Kimiko Joy, “RUBaDUB Posse” is a testament to reggae’s enduring power, celebrating songs of love, liberation, unity and justice that have inspired people across the globe.

Encompassing classic tunes from the rocksteady, roots and dub eras all the way to dancehall and contemporary reggae, the RUBaDUB’z repertoire ranges from Bob Marley and the Wailers, Steel Pulse and Gregory Isaacs to Marcia Aitken, Barrington Levy, Sister Nancy, Peter Tosh and Sade, to name a few.

The Posse features a stellar cast who’ve played with many of reggae’s greatest figures, including bassist Waddell Bell, keyboardist Joe Bressler, guitarist Vince Black, drummer Darian Gray and percussionist Mario Vela.
