Marley Fest returns to Surfside on February 8 with the best line up to date.
The festival is a celebration of Robert Nesta AKA Bob Marley, born on February 6, 1945.
Lest we forget that reggae music is not all about the weed, the ethos of Marley Fest is based on inclusion and diversity, echoing the messages of Bob Marley’s lyrics that he once sang and performed to millions around the world.
Running in it’s fourth year, come see internationally acclaimed reggae artists play seaside Sliema to throes of reggae lovers. Million Stylez, Sara Lugo and DanJah are three of such artists.
Locally based acts include Maltese ska & reggae band Island Roots, chilled-out Nigerian reggae artist Rasta Bama and Seekeer, the multi-talented selector hailing from Sicily. Also included are Lubay, BeLights, DJ Jaymed, Mista Jay and Adry Selektah, plus surprise acts.
Our favorite tracks looking ahead to this year’s Marley Fest:
