Matisyahu and The Green to Headline The Queen Mary’s 5th Annual Shoreline Jam Festival, Tickets On Sale Now
2015-05-20 · By Editor
The Queen Mary is pleased to announce the lineup for the 5th annual Shoreline Jam Festival Sept. 5-6 at the Waterfront Event Park. Matisyahu will headline the fest on Saturday, September 5 and The Green will headline the stage on Sunday, September 6. Tickets for Shoreline Jam are currently on-sale.
Matisyahu first made a name for himself with his album Live at Stubbs, and Youth quickly followed. Both albums subsequently went Gold and Youth was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album. Matisyahu’s fifth studio, Akeda, will be available on June 3 and was recorded in Brooklyn’s Studio G, produced by Dub Trio’s Stu Brooks. Matisyahu states, “This record and period of my life deal with madness, listening for and following the inner intuitive voice, a small still sound. This record deals with love, with feelings of brokenness and humility, with humanity, struggle, and sacrifice.”
The Grouch & Eligh, Seedless, Kimie Miner, Brewfish, and more artists will join Matisyahu on the Shoreline Jam stage on Saturday, September 5.
The Green struck the reggae community hard with their debut album from 2010. Their sophomore LP Ways & Means solidified their status as a force in reggae music. With Hawai‘i ’13, the band aims higher. The album collects 13 stellar tracks by a group with an insatiable urge to push their music onto the global stage. Some songs punch and some songs sway, but ultimately they all blend to form a new shade of Green. Stick Figure, Shwayze, and Bad Apples among other top reggae rock acts will also take the stage on Sunday, September 6.
“Last year we expanded Shoreline Jam into a new two-day festival and we are thrilled it was such a success,” commented Steve Sheldon, Queen Mary Director of Entertainment Events. “Spending Labor Day weekend with Matisyahu and The Green performing live on the waterfront sounds like the perfect way to celebrate the holiday weekend.”
