TULSA, OK -- Reggae On The Green is set for Saturday at 2nd and Greenwood just east of The Flytrap Music Hall. Music lovers will find four acres of green to enjoy the reggae scene.

"Tulsa has been missing a reggae event for some time now. This year's festival should easily satisfy the thousands of fans who used to know Reggae Fests' annual event as an institution." said founder Clay Cooley.

The festival will be an all age event (children 12 and under get in free with an adult) and will bring people from every demographic to one location to enjoy peace, love and happiness. Reggae on the Green has the makings to be one of the best festivals Tulsa has seen this year.

Gates open at 11 a.m. Pre-sale tickets are $10 at the event website or Starship Records and Tapes. Tickets are $15 at the gate Saturday.

The music starts at noon and ends at midnight.

Performers include Collie Buddz and The New Kingston Band, Cas Haley, Josh Heinrichs (formerly of Jah Roots) Classy San Diego, The Last Slice, Local Hero, Tribe of Souths, Bubble, Ugly Lion and The Rebellion.

Festival organizers are also donating a portion of the proceeds to help support the Tulsa Public School District's music department. As has been widely publicized, several area schools have had to close their music departments due to budget constraints.

There will also be several vendors selling their wares and plenty of incredible authentic Jamaican cuisine as well as other foods from around the world. There will also be "cool" activities such as an icy Slip N Slide and much more!
