Legendary Steel Pulse is the only UK reggae group to win a Grammy. In 1985 Babylon The Bandit album won the Best Reggae Album category. Their international success earned them further Grammy Nominations for their albums, Victims, Rastafari Centennial, Rage & Fury, Living Legacy and African Holocaust. 2012 has seen the release of Rocksteady a film co-starring David Hinds and featuring the band’s live members. The Hind’s track "Rocksteady" was composed especially for the movie. January 2012 saw the group perform in Haiti for the first time. The track "Hold on 4 Haiti" was written as result of the earthquake and they have been instrumental in raising thousands of dollars for the relief effort with Partners in Health. Steel Pulse are currently working on a new album which will be released later this year and also a documentary of their long career which features live footage and interviews.

Since forming in 1995, Slightly Stoopid has toured virtually non-stop. A headliner since 2007, their annual summer amphitheater tours have been supported by Snoop Dogg, Cypress Hill, Ozomatli, Sly & Robbie and Stephen Marley, at venues including Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Berkeley’s Greek Theater, NYC’s Central Park and more. Slightly Stoopid has also performed alongside acts including the Dave Matthews Band, Damian Marley and The Roots, while appearing at such festivals as Coachella, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits and New Orleans Jazz Fest. On March 30th, Slightly Stoopid released a two-CD/DVD package, Live at Roberto's TRI Studios, which was recorded at Bob Weir’s studio and features collaborations with Weir, Ivan and Ian Neville, and Karl Denson of The Greyboy Allstars, along with host Tommy Chong. After the Festival the group will embark on the Unity Tour 2012 with 311 starting July 8th.

G. Love frontman of G. Love & Special Sauce will perform hit songs off of his solo albums. After years of acoustic hip-hop with his group, Garrett Dutton aka G. Love released his latest solo album called Fixin' to Die in 2011 produced by The Avett Brothers, which features a more blues-focused sound from the Philadelphia singer-songwriter. Known for his live shows, he is often seen touring with Jack Johnson. Johnson signed G. Love to his record label Brushfire Records. He has made appearances on the records of artists such as Slightly Stoopid and Donavon Frankenreiter and recently went on tour with Dave Matthews.

Reggae star Gyptian's single "Hold You" was ranked one of the hottest songs of 2010 by numerous media outlets worldwide, capping off a stunning year for the artist and landing him everywhere from Billboard Magazine to the New York Times. Gyptian was crowned 'Reggae Artist of the Year' at the 2010 Soul Train Awards and the 2010 MOBO Awards in the UK.

Due to travel circumstances beyond anyone's control, Alborosie will not be able to perform at the Republik Music Festival. 3 of his band members are not currently able to get working visa for the US. He hopes to make it up to everyone very soon. Barrington Levy will now be performing at The Republik Music Festival in place of Alborosie on Oahu, Maui, and The Big Island. Ooklah The Moc will be taking Alborosie's spot on Kauai at The Republik Music Festival. Looking forward to an amazing night of music on this tour!
