Longtime Matisyahu fans know what the Festival Of Light is about. Accompanied by Dub Trio, Matisyahu’s annual Hanukkah journey features surprise guests along with a wide range of support acts. Artists who have appeared on Matisyahu’s Festival of Light shows include Kevin Devine, Travie McCoy and Brett Dennen.
Originally created as a New York City-based residency, Matisyahu took Festival Of Light on the road for the first time last year, expanding the experience to such places as Clifton Park, N.Y., and Baltimore.
