The inaugural Miami Beach Pop Festival will set up shop at the beachfront Lummus Park on the iconic Ocean Drive in Miami Beach on November 8th, 9th, and 10th this fall. While the event’s producers have already shared the lineup for its first-year event including Chance the Rapper, Jack Johnson, Daddy Yankee, Kygo, The Raconteurs, and more, the festival announced on Friday that it will also feature an all-star celebration of the music of late reggae legend, Bob Marley.
The celebration of Marley will take place on day one of the festival on Friday, and will be led by his son Stephen Marley, with performances from Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Jack Johnson, Nacho, and Arcade Fire’s Win Butler. More special guests for the tribute set will be announced closer to the November event.
“Bob Marley is perhaps the most beloved artist in the world, and his unifying message is exactly what Miami Beach Pop is all about,” festival co-founder Paul Peck, said about the tribute in a statement. “The impact of his music and spirit cannot be understated. We are honored to create this historic show during sunset on the first day of the festival. It will be an unforgettable moment in time.”
Other artists set to perform throughout the weekend event include Juanes, Maggie Rogers, Leon Bridges, The Roots, Nile Rodgers and Chic, Sean Paul, T-Pain, Jessie Reyez, Bomba Estereo, Quinn XCII, Natti Natasha, Gryffin, Brytiago, Margo Price, and many more.
