Miami's Reggae Festival by the Bob Marley Clan

Posted at February 2nd, 2016 | by Shivani Goel | in

First known as the Marley Fest and The Caribbean Music Festival, the 9 Mile Music Festival first happened in 1993. It was a testament for the love of Cedella Marley Booker, in memory of her son, the reggae legend, Bob Marley. It has been renamed for the village of Bob Marley’s birth, which is where the heart of the family lies.

It’s held at the Virginia Key Beach Park in Miami which is a beautiful beachside park with a very special history. This year it’s on the 27th of February. The beach is located south and southeast from sparkling Downtown Miami and is accessible from the mainland. This Beach is a gorgeous mile long sandy strip that will be filled with music, culture, and food during the festivities.

The 9 Mile Music Festival is more than just a concert. It has provided over 3 million canned goods to the needy since it’s inception. They have been distributing food to homeless shelters and domestic centers in Miami; which feeds families in need for the coming months. Since 1993, the festival has required canned goods as fee in addition to the price of admission, and it always will.
