In preparation for the electrifying weekend ahead, we narrowed down the blazing hot performers and handpicked the top five acts to look out for. Here are the best performances you'll see at Riptide Music Festival.
Formerly known as The Jackson 5, the American pop band has sold more than 100 million records worldwide. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Vocal Group Hall of Fame honoree, the group renamed itself as The Jacksons in 1975 due to record label demands.
Currently comprised of Tito, Jackie, Marion and Jermaine Jackson, past members of the band included Randy and The King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson.

From 47 songs to a tracklist of 86, these elongated performances have slowly grown throughout the years.
Third Eye Blind. Sunday, December 2. Is it truly possible not to love a band behind some of the most timeless hits of the '90s? Think back to those days of shout-singing the lyrics to "Jumper" or "Semi-Charmed Life" surrounded by a swell of others who knew every word alongside you.
