Iconic peacemaker, singer, and songwriter Bob Marley would have been 70 years old this February, and as the world prepares to remember his legacy, his home country of Jamaica is set to make history by hosting the 23rd annual Bob Marley Birthday Bash. A city-wide party scheduled for February 1 through 6, 2015, Marley’s birthday event will be a time of joy and remembrance for those in attendance.
This year’s celebration promises to be particularly special. To the anticipation of fans worldwide, Marley’s family is unveiling private footage at this year’s event, which features a live show of Bob Marley and the Wailers in 1978. Marley’s 1984 release, Legend, reached a top 5 spot on the Billboard charts in 2014, which serves as a testament to his continued influence and importance in popular culture.
Held in Negril, Marley’s upcoming birthday celebration is attracting visitors from around the world who wish to experience the essence of reggae’s godfather, taste a variety of tropical food, and absorb the sounds and sights of local culture. The six-day event kicks off February 1, 2015 in partnership with the Bob Marley Foundation, and promises to keep attendees jammin’.
Once the party officially begins, guests will enjoy the sounds of lively local drummers during the Rastafari Nyabinghi Presentation, followed by five nights of colorful parties, tribute bands, and festivals. Considering the event is commemorating the future face of the world’s first marijuana brand, guests will have a large selection of foods from which to choose. Concluding with the all-day One Love Celebration, Bob Marley’s Birthday Bash will welcome fans and celebrities alike.
