If a full year is too long for you to wait for great shows, then good news is here. In conjunction with Pier Events, Reggae Rise Up organizers announced the Rise Up Concert Series at the St. Pete Pier, bringing an unreal lineup of big acts to neighboring St. Pete, including a star-studded run this December.
Highlights for the holiday season include four of the 10 concerts planned as part of the series, with the first one bringing a great show last Friday. The remaining December shows include Cavetown on Friday, December 8; G-Eazy on Saturday, December 9; and Ludacris on Friday, December 15. Tickets to all the shows can be found here.
Rise Up brings a stellar lineup to the downtown waterfront
From The Revivalists and Iration to G-Eazy and even Ludacris, the Rise Up Concert Series has been (and still is) one of the most acclaimed music series the city has seen, all taking place in Spa Beach Park at the St. Pete Pier. When it was announced, organizers promised that the major music series would “redefine the concert experience, merging the beauty of the surrounding waterfront, the urban energy of downtown St. Pete, and musical acts beloved by all.”
The series officially kicked off on November 4, when The Revivalists took over The Pier for an evening of their biggest hits, newest releases, and underground favorites, and Rise Up runs through January 20, when it will be capped by a show from Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness. Tickets to individual shows are available now, and organizers said even more acts will be named in the coming weeks.
“After producing Reggae Rise Up Florida for more than 10 years, we’re excited to partner with the St. Pete Pier to bring continued large-scale concerts to downtown St. Pete,” said Vaugh Carrick, founder and owner of LNE Presents. “During that time, we’ve gotten a front-row seat to witness the growth of the city’s entertainment scene and couldn’t imagine a better venue for shows of this size and stature.”

- Cavetown – Friday, December 8, 5 pm
- G-Eazy – Saturday, December 9, 5 pm
- Ludacris – Friday, December 15, 5 pm
