Best of the Best 2013 Festival Guide, From Beenie Man to Beres Hammond

Come summer, reggae festivals are as commonplace in the States as Bob Marley tees are at reggae festivals.

Held every Memorial Day weekend in downtown Miami since 2007, Best of the Best is one of the only annual fests in the U.S. that puts the emphasis squarely on dancehall, and it's certainly the largest.

After taking on more and more hip-hop acts in its last few editions, this year's festival returns to its roots with a strictly Caribbean lineup.
