In honor of Bob Marley’s legacy and Black History Month, the 31st Annual Tribute to the Legends Festival will take over the Broadway Pier Port Pavilion on Feb. 18 & 19. As Marley once said, “Every man gotta right to decide his own destiny.” So, grab your buds (and by that I mean friends) and celebrate the most revered reggae musician of all time.
The first day will bring an array of live music by legends in the industry, including a headlining performance by Don Carlos, one of the most memorable musicians to have come from Kingston, Jamaica (pictured). King Yellowman, a popular Jamaican DJ, will make an appearance, along with top reggae talent J-Boog, Prezident Brown, Sister Nancy, Big Mountain and Brigadier Jerry.
Reggae fans have a lot to look forward to on the second day of the festival, as international reggae star Johnny Osbourne will perform and may bless fans with the sounds of his mega-hits “Truths and Rights” and “Buddy Bye.” More reggae and dance hall talent is set to include Junior Reid, Albarose, The Wailing Souls, Sister Carol and The Itals.
Tribute to the Legends is an all-ages festival that will be jamming from 4 to 11pm on Saturday, Feb. 18 and Sunday, Feb. 19. The annual event is made possible by the WorldBeat Cultural Center, a non-profit organization dedicated to healing the world through music, culture, dance and art. A weekend pass is available for $120, with day passes running for $65. The Broadway Pier Port Pavilion is located at 1000 North Harbor Drive in downtown San Diego.
