"Miami Reggae Festival expresses our hopes and dreams of a world in which what we have in common is far greater than that which divides us. Through the Festival, we live not by looking at each other but by looking together in the same direction." - Babacar MBow, Cultural Critic, Director of Multitudes Art Gallery Miami

The Miami Reggae Festival and its organizers, Rockers Movement, have partnered with the non-profit organization TECHO to raise funds, food and awareness for residents living in poverty. The November 23rd event held at Coconut Grove’s Peacock Park will unify Miami’s diverse community through music while donating a portion of all ticket proceeds plus food collected at the event to aid Dade County residents living in poverty.

Music has always had the power to unite and inspire humanitarianism. "The Miami Reggae Festival takes it to the top, offering the highest quality of performance, political ambience and service to community available anywhere,“ says Carole Boyce Davies, Writer & Cornell University Professor of English and Africana Studies. “Truly international in orientation, there is no other place where one can experience such a rich presentation of the best in reggae talent. Miami proves again, this time through its Reggae Festival, that it is the place to be for the internationalizing of Caribbean culture." In reflection of South Florida’s diverse cultural heritage, the Miami Reggae Festival brings together music from around the world including Stephen Marley from Jamaica, Tiken Jah Fakoly from Africa’s Ivory Coast, Cultura Profética from Puerto Rico, Natiruts from Brazil, Midnite from St. Croix USVI, Gondwana from Chile, and many more - a full musical lineup is below.

Attendees of the Miami Reggae Festival are asked to bring non-perishable and canned food items for donation in observance of Thanksgiving. The rations collected at the event will be organized that night by TECHO volunteers and immediately re-distributed the following day to families in need in Coconut Grove, Overtown and Liberty City by artists, volunteers, and staff members of TECHO and Rockers Movement. Subsequently, a portion of proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to TECHO - a youth led non-profit organization at work in 19 countries including Latin American and the Caribbean. Through the joint work of families living in extreme hardship and youth volunteers, TECHO seeks to overcome poverty. “Rockers Movement will amplify our message and continue to scream that Miami is committed to overcoming poverty,” says Nicolas Berardi, US CEO of TECHO. To date, the organization has mobilized more than half a million youth volunteers and built over 3,000 houses for families living in Latin American slums. Rockers Movement (rockersmovement.com), in association with Fertile Earth Foundation, Unity is Change, Dade Recycling, Artecology Organization & Lady Green Recycling, is proud to promote the Zero Waste Initiative at Miami Reggae Festival. In a committed effort towards sustainability, the Reduce, Reuse, & Recycle model will be implemented to prevent trash and organic materials from going into landfills and incinerators, thus diverting over 20 tons of waste and greatly reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The festival will also work food vendors to collect edible food items to feed people and food scraps to feed animals.

Miami Reggae Festival is a family-friendly event featuring an artisan village of visual arts and handicrafts; various culinary vendors; an “Artecology Experience,” offering interactive games for kids about sustainability, healthy living seminars and workshops, including AEROGA ® Yoga in the Park, meditation, and dance; plus drum sessions, a bike valet, and so much more. Tickets for Miami Reggae Festival are currently on sale and can be purchased online and through various South Florida locations. General admission tickets are $45; VIP tickets are $75 and include access to a VIP lounge with private bathrooms. Kids 12 and younger are free when accompanied by a paid adult. In the spirit of unity and service, Miami Reggae Festival is offering free admission before 3pm to all attendees who contribute two or more non-perishable food items.

Miami Reggae Festival is made possible with the support of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners.
