Republik Music FestivalRebelution will headline the festival with featured performances by Matisyahu, Steel Pulse and Makua Rothman.

Since they formed in 2005, Rebelution released four studio albums, with their second album, “Bright Side of Life” topping the iTunes chart in reggae. Known for his 2005 single “King Without a Crown,” Matisyahu combines elements of reggae, hip-hop and beatboxing into his music, also drawing from hazzan, a style of prayer in Judaism. Reggae-roots band Steel Pulse won the Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album in 1987, the first time a non-Jamaican act has won in the category. Local boy Makua Rothman grew up on the North Shore and started surfing since he was two. Since being taught by Iz Kamakawiwoʻole, John Cruz and Ledward Kaapana, Rothman has recently released his new album “Sound Wave,” which debuted at the top of the iTunes world chart.
