The event will fall on the fifth night of Hanukkah.
Grammy-nominated musician Matisyahu has announced his annual Festival of Light show for Brooklyn Steel in New York. Scheduled for Dec. 6, the fifth night of Hanukkah, the evening of acoustic music will also feature performances from Soul Rebels and special guest appearance by prolific producer and multi-instrumentalist GriZ. Other surprise guests are expected at the event.
“We are excited and honored to support Matisyahu’s Festival of Light this year! Coming together as a community to celebrate and support each other is what this time of year is about,” said New Orleans brass band Soul Rebels in a release.
Founded by the Jewish reggae rapper in 2006, the Festival of Light is a concert celebration occurring during or throughout the Hanukkah season. Previous events have seen appearances from guests such as Tim Reynolds, Blues Traveler and The Wailers.
