This was an awesome reggae experience the weather was better than I thought it was going to be! I’m so excited to go again next year! I appreciate the excellent price definitely buying from you guys again too!



Tue Aug 14 02:26:50 PDT 2018

Was only there for Sunday night. Enjoyed Morgan Heritage but was disappointed by the very short set by the Wailers. This was apparently due to technical issues with the sound of one or more instruments but once it was fixed they only played for about 30 minutes instead of the scheduled hour.

Bought the ticket for Reggae on the River and it could not be scanned at the event. It just would not scan so it looked like I made a fake ticket. I had to buy another ticket at the gate for $100. You people suck. I will NEVER go through you guys EVER again. Not only did you rip me off, you made ME look like a lowlife scammer.

Ticket would not scan at event. Ticket price $52.00. Cost to buy ticket at event $100. So I ended up paying $152 to attend this event for 1 day. I will never go through you guys again.

I was actually nervous using rush49, because the deal they had for the tickets seemed too good to be true. But went to the festival they accepted the tickets and we had a great time. I hope they have these deals next year. I will for now checkin rush49 for all my tickets.. thanks bunches

The event was pretty well organized, and attendees needs were met as far as food, water, bathrooms, etc. There were some nice technical improvements this yesr such as the overhead canopies and the presentation of the hillside. The sound system though had some challenges, and I personally do not like having so much dance hall performances - especially back to back.

First off, ticket purchasing and pricing were seamless using Rush49, with absolutely no problems at the ticket gate. There was a lot of concern about how well this event would go this year, what with High Times taking over and a lot of last minute planning and details that normally take a full year to work out, not six months. BUT, a big thank you to High Times for pulling off a great 3 day festival that appeared to go smoothly. Security was much better this year, too, than in the past. Only thing I'd change is to use more on local talent to provide services, and provide a shuttle service from the stage/festival entrance up to the highway for us old folks:) Walking on those rocks to and from the shuttle can be a bit of a challenge, even for the younge set, after a day full of partying.

I’m a first time user. Purchase experience was great. No problems with voucher scanning at the event. I will purchase from again.

The spirit of this festival is good and goinf regardless of the changes that have happened in ownership. Next year I would hope to see more big names as we are used to but am still happy to have went!!

Excellent show-especially Don Carlos, Waling Souls, Israel Vibes, Bombaata Marley. Thank you again.

Great ticket deal for a vestival that is usually quite expensive. Tickets alone for two people come to $500 every year usually. Was nice to save a few hundred bucks on a my local vestival!

Got 225.00 tickets for 135.00. So happy I did this! I was nervous at first and checked with the vendor on whether they'd accept the tickets. They confirmed it was all legit. Huge savings! Thank you so much. The show was great.

I enjoyed seeing 3 of my favorite bands. This year was better than last year. Just wish there were more vendors and roots bands. Really thankful for the discount tickets on this website.

Don Carlos and busy signal were excellent performers great artists!!!! Mavado was a total flop he was terrible. Mavado is a narcissistic bad performer with a lousy voice and a dispicable attitude. I really wish that busy signal would have headlined that night.

Good show, the croud was a little small this year but overall, good show.



Wed Aug 08 15:51:06 PDT 2018

It was great to save so much money on concert tickets the same day as the event. And no hidden fees! I hope to find more events on Rush49!

I had never heard of Rush49 before so I was hesitant to buy reggae in the river tickets from them. But we searched online and everything we saw was positive feedback. So we bought two tickets, didn’t have any problems using them, and saved 30%. Now that we know they are legit we will be sure to use them again!
