Continuing on the success of its 2015 debut, the second annual Blaze ‘N’ Glory Festival is set for Saturday, June 4, 2016 at the San Manuel Amphitheater Festival Grounds in San Bernardino, CA, near Los Angeles. Blaze ‘N’ Glory will feature hip hop legend Nas, alongside an eclectic mix of performers which includes Atmosphere, The Growlers, Griz, Stephen “Ragga” Marley, Prof, Hirie, Seedless, Radical Something, and Black Salt Tone. Blaze ‘N’ Glory attendees will also be able to experience over 100 lifestyle vendors, as well as a midway and carnival rides, craft beer, food trucks and more.
The one-day music and lifestyle festival–produced by Synergy Global Entertainment (SGE) and Live Nation–will feature music performances in the open area General Admission festival grounds adjacent to the amphitheater. Atmosphere says, “I can’t wait to come make party with your faces.”
A very limited quantity of Blaze ‘N’ Glory discounted Early Bird General Admission and VIP tickets will go on sale Friday, February 19 at 10:00 AM PT at www.BlazeNGlory.com. Prices will go up after the Early Bird period ends. Concertgoers are advised to buy early and save! Look for camping details coming soon.
Producer John Reese of SGE says, “We’re back at it and ready for year two of Blaze ‘N’ Glory! Our first year was a massive success and everyone had a great time, ourselves included. This year, having heavy hitters like Nas and Atmosphere, along with Stephen Marley, Griz and tons more, we feel like we have something special for everyone to truly enjoy up in the San Bernardino mountains!”
Live Nation’s Rich Best shares in SGE’s enthusiasm for the return of Blaze ‘N’ Glory, stating, “After establishing Blaze ‘N’ Glory as a premier destination event in its first year in 2015, we’re excited to bring Southern California’s best roots, rock, reggae and hip hop infused lifestyle and music festival back to the expansive San Manuel Amphitheater Festival Grounds, set beneath the San Bernardino Mountains. We challenged ourselves to curate a lineup that would blend iconic artists with groundbreaking artists, which is why we chose acts like Nas, Atmosphere, The Growlers and Seedless. With this mix of talent, the mountainous views and variety of interactive experiences, Blaze ‘N’ Glory is positioning itself as one of California’s must-go-to festivals.”
On many Top 50 lists, Nas is recognized as the greatest Rapper/MC of all time. Nas does not tour very often, so this is a rare opportunity to see and hear a legend.
Atmosphere are the crusaders of indie hip-hop with their introspective lyrics and funk driven beats. Their catalogue spans beyond their age and encompasses decades of hip hop and when heard live puts the audience in a frenzy. Southern California’s own “Beach Goth” band, The Growlers promise to ignite the Blaze ‘N’ Glory Festival crowd with outrageous stage props and their one-of-a-kind sound, which mixes country, surf pop and psychedelic rock.
Fresh off a sold out spring tour, Griz is set to light up the Blaze ‘N’ Glory stage with his infectious and smooth bass driven DJ set infused with live sax and instrumentation. Stephen “Ragga” Marley has consecutively landed #1 on the U.S. Billboard Reggae Album Chart for all of his solo albums and has earned a total of eight Grammys for Best Reggae Album.
