What To Expect At Rebel Salute

Reggae music lovers are in for a treat with the impressive lineup that Rebel Salute has to offer. From  industry veterans like Half Pint, Derrick Morgan and Cocoa Tea to Roots Reggae favourites Tarrus Riley, I -Wayne and Warrior King. One act to watch will be Sister Marion Hall  who recently embraced christianity. Ms. Hall, formerly known as the Dancehall Diva, Lady Saw will undoubtedly be blessing the audience with her new catalogue of music and it will be interesting to see how the audience will receive her. Tony Rebel the man behind the event will also be performing. Rebel Salute started as his birthday celebration and it grew into the well respected reggae show that it has become.

Patrons can expect an alcohol and meat free event which is in keeping with Tony Rebel’s rastafarian faith. The organizers have introduced what is dubbed as a herb curb concept. In addition to vendors displaying a variety of marijuana based products there will be an educational symposium on the benefit of the herb. With Jamaica’s newly relaxed marijuana laws   event goers will also be able to smoke. T
