Cali Vibes Festival’s BoomYard Stage Returns to Long Beach with A New Exclusive LineUp of Caribbean and African Talent
Los Angeles, CA – BoomYard at CaliVibes is set to be a one-of-a-kind experience giving Caribbean talent a space to connect with fans in a music festival setting. The 2023 BoomYard stage will showcase an exclusive lineup of Caribbean talent during the three-day festival activation such as, Baby Cham, Demarco, Lila Ike, Yaadcore, Blvk H3ro, Los Rakas, Yaksta, Runkus, Blakkamoore, Royal Blu, and selectors such as Blaq Pages, Stone Love, Renaissance Disco, Nikki Z, SHACIA PÄYNE, Mysta Crooks and more.
The festival will take place in Long Beach, California at Marina Green Park on February 17-19 2023. BoomYard at Cali Vibes has emerged as one of the only festival activations to incorporate the discovery of some of the Caribbean’s hottest new artists at a North American music festival. The BoomYard stage show will be a spin off of LA’s outdoor, Caribbean day-party providing guests with the cultural experience of Jamaica’s iconic dancehall settings.
BoomYard is one of LA’s most authentic Caribbean events. The outdoor day party, hosted at Delicious Pizza, is a monthly, brunch-style, street-dance and sound-system experience. It has become a genuine celebration of Jamaican culture reminiscent of the island’s cherished carnival raves, street dances, stage shows and dancehall sessions.
“Presenting the BoomYard stage in February is such a unique and celebratory opportunity with Southern California music fans. It’s happening during a culmination of Black History and Reggae Month, which is a noteworthy experience for anyone who is tuned in or interested in the culture. The three-day experience gives fans a chance to see authentic Caribbean talent, dancers and selectors from the diaspora, which makes it feel like we are right there in the islands, where it all began. It’s an honor to create history in Long Beach in our second year.” – Delicious Vinyl Island

BoomYard is an outdoor reggae-dancehall party powered by Delicious Vinyl Island as part of their ecosystem of music, events and food alongside Delicious Vinyl and Delicious Pizza. BoomYard began in December 2015 as the brainchild of Leslie Cooney (Delicious Vinyl) to bring together LA’s intimate reggae-dancehall community, while paying homage to Jamaica’s iconic street-dance, sound-system culture. Headlined by Jamaica’s most loved artists and selectors such as Shaggy, Mr. Vegas, DJ Delano of Renaissance Sound, and more, the event quickly became one of the city’s most authentic expressions of Jamaican culture. Originally a monthly event, BoomYard has begun to curate traveling stages within and around the global reggae community.
