Holo Holo Vegas 

April 26 – April 28
Downtown Events Center

“‘Holo Holo’ means to travel, to sail, to move,” says O’ahu-born Good Vibez co-owner, Dan Sheehan. This familiar expression is most often heard between friends as in ‘let’s holo holo up country’, Sheehan says, when detailing the festival’s origin. The inaugural Holo Holo Music Festival took place in Northern California at Frost Amphitheater at Stanford University in 2022, but “this event desires movement, so carrying Holo Holo to Las Vegas and Sacramento in 2023 is a natural progression for its fluidity.” It will continue to move, so look for several Holo Holo locations in 2024 and beyond.

For Sheehan, curating this lineup is more than just something on his to-do list. “Growing up in Ewa Beach, O’ahu, island music and reggae were the soundtracks to my childhood. These styles of music — the heartbeat of the islands — is the backbone of my work as a festival producer and venue owner. A big part of Good Vibez Presents is discovery, and I’m honored to be able to showcase and celebrate these bands at the Holo Holo Festivals.”

For the past 25 years, Good Vibez Presents has produced hundreds of unforgettable, multidimensional concerts and festivals along the West Coast, Hawaii, Arizona, North Carolina and Mexico, most notably the largest reggae-rock festival in the country; the California Roots Music & Arts Festival in Monterey. Good Vibez events are rooted in supporting nonprofits and small businesses and using their platforms to elevate creatives in their community. Good Vibez is stoked to host Holo Holo in Las Vegas and Sacramento in 2023 and bring people together with mindful, sustainable gatherings rich with music and art.
