Celebrating 50 years of Jamaican Independence, The Regeneration Celebration re-opens Bob Marley Way on Sunday 29th July with an all star musical line-up…
The Regeneration Celebration is a free, community focused, music-led initiative that celebrates 50 years of Jamaican Independence and British Jamaican culture all in the name Jamaica’s most famous son, Bob Marley.
The event brings music and the arts directly to the people of Bob Marley Way in Brixton and will be attended by Bob’s Daughter Cedella Marley. Speaking on behalf of the Marley family, Cedella Marley said…
‘We are delighted about the Bob Marley Way celebrations on July 29th. Dad enjoyed many happy times in South London, so I’m pleased Marley’s Mellow Mood is working with this community to create an event that will both entertain and leave a legacy. I’m especially excited that our charitable platform 1Love.Org will be on-site to share news on its on-going mission to promote youth, planet and peace.’
Fusing a mixture of contemporary and heritage music, Trojan Sound System will be at hand at the Regeneration Celebration which will feature a diverse programme of Jamaican and urban music acts, including commercially successful artists and DJs, as well as local and up-and-coming performers.
Youth workshops will take place across the day that will continue after the event and there will be a donation to the local community centre instead of site fees for local traders attending the event
The family friendly event is aimed at audiences of all ages, encouraging participation from all generations of the community and will feature two music stages, an arts village, children’s area, food and beverage market (no alcohol will be sold) and a film tent.
Hosted by Ras Kwame with Orange Hill, the day will feature a mix of contemporary and heritage artists including Devlin, Gappy Ranks, Sway, Crazy Cousins, Soul II Soul Sound System, Trojan Sound System, Amplify Dot, Rascals, Lady Leshurr, Aruba Red, 2morrows Victory, Jacob Banks, Kyra & White Powder Gold with Trojan Sound System also participating.
