The 38th Annual TRIBUTE TO THE REGGAE LEGENDS

 

February is Black History Month in the US but in Jamaica it has been commemorated as Reggae Month. 2019 will commemorate the 50th anniversary of Reggae Music. Some iconic legends who share their birthdays in February are Dennis Brown's (Feb 1st), Pam Hall (Feb 1st), Bob Marley (Feb 6th) and Bunny Rugs (Feb 6th). Olivia ‘Babsy’ Grange, the Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, said “This Reggae Month is the grand celebration party for the recent inscription of the Reggae Music of Jamaica to the UNESCO list of Intangible treasures for the whole of humanity,”

 

Tribute to the Reggae Legends Festival / Bob Day was founded by WorldBeat Productions 38 years ago. Each year the festival pays respect to all the passed and living legends of reggae music. Tribute to the Reggae Legends 2019 will be on Presiden't Day Weekend Saturday, February 16th and Sunday, February 17th.
