LA’s Crown Mission Sound crew returns to the Ace for the fourth year with Reggae Sol, bringing its trademark afternoon of old school hip hop, neo soul and—of course—relaxing reggae to this patio-dotted property perfectly designed for outdoor lounging. Laid-back crowds carry easy-does-it attitude along with pitchers of white sangria and hit the healing waters of the Ace’s saltwater pools for an extra hit of positive ions. Those who want to get baked the old fashioned way make good use of all-day access to the hot tub, gym, sauna and steam room included in the event’s cover charge. This year, the party series will include a bonus fete—July 9th, guest DJs Jester (of Tribe of Kings Sound System, from San Diego) and Meessinja (of Culture 45, from San Fran) help celebrate one love for the crew’s four year anniversary at the property’s Amigo Room.
