Bob marley tribute

75th Anniversary

[initially scheduled for 2020]

In recognition of Bob Marley’s life and legacy, we are proud to announce this upcoming year’s Reggae Edition on July 7-10, 2022 by the Clock-Tower Quay of the Old Port of Montreal. By way of a variety of activities, our four-day festival will highlight reggae music and culture as well as the contributions of its most famous son, Bob Marley.

In November 2018, reggae music of Jamaica was added to UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage List. This recognition underscores the genre as an important contribution to the world’s cultural heritage. Although uniquely Jamaican, reggae has transcended national, racial, political and musical boundaries to become one of the most impactful genres of modern music. Its global influence can be heard in rock, pop and hip hop and has been used as a vehicle to give voice to the marginalized and downtrodden. Its themes of peace, unity and equality have drawn people together. In particular, Bob Marley’s music has done much to spread reggae’s influence internationally.

We are proud to announce our partnership with the CANADIAN COMMISSION FOR UNESCO (CC UNESCO), in which we will for the first time, produce a FREE multimedia exhibit, celebrating reggae music as well as the contributions of of Bob Marley. This exhibit will be on view exclusively during the festival!
