About the Festival

February is Black History Month in the US but in Jamaica, it has been commemorated as Reggae Month. 2019 will commemorate the 50th anniversary of Reggae Music. Some iconic legends who share their birthdays in February are Dennis Brown’s (Feb 1st), Pam Hall (Feb 1st), Bob Marley (Feb 6th) and Bunny Rugs (Feb 6th). Olivia ‘Babsy’ Grange, the Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, said “This Reggae Month is the grand celebration party for the recent inscription of the Reggae Music of Jamaica to the UNESCO list of Intangible treasures for the whole of humanity,”

Join us on Saturday, February 16 and Sunday, February 17 for WorldBeat Productions’ 38th annual Tribute to the Reggae Legends Festival. Each annual festival showcases conscious roots reggae music in its cultural form. This year the event will take place at the WorldBeat Cultural Center located at 2100 Park Blvd, San Diego, (Balboa Park) and gates will open at 3:30PM.

Reggae 101
On Saturday, February 16 the Reggae 101 panel will feature the current state of the reggae music industry, women in modern-day reggae and dancehall, and the history of sound system, dub evolution – past, present and future. Guest panelists include Ranking Joe, Downbeat the Ruler, Lady Ann, Shinehead, Makeda Dread, and DJ Buttahfly. This is an opportunity for the Reggae fraternity to ask Reggae Legends, promoters and DJs anything they ve been questioning about the Reggae movement. The panel will take place at Centro Cultural de la Raza (next door) and will go from 4PM to 5:30PM and will be moderated by Jamaican music expert, event host, on-air personality, DJ, promoter, and connoisseur of Reggae, past, present, and future, MC Junor Francis.
