Get up. Stand up. Smoke up.
Every year, in honor of Bob Marley, his legacy, and the righteousness of reggae, Jah, and ganja, the Nine Mile Music Festival livicates a full day to steady jammin', doin' good, and smokin' that "herb," which Tuff Gong himself described as, "good for every-ting."
Once colloquially called Marley Fest, this annual Rasta get-together is also kinda like a family reunion. So naturally, the festival will again be headlined by sons of Bob and reggae stars Stephen "Ragga" Marley, Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley, and Julian "Juju" Marley.
But there's also gonna be the next generation, like son of Stephen, Jo Mersa Marley.
Check the cut for Nine Mile's lineup so far.
