37th Annual Tribute to the Reggae Legends
Just in time for Black History Month, the Tribute to the Reggae Legends returns for its 37th year. The event features reggae artists including Junior Reid, Big Youth, Sister Carol, Warrior King and Kevin Isaacs, son of the late Gregory Isaacs, “The Cool Ruler.” Junior Reid’s hit “This is Why I’m Hot,” was eventually remixed by American rapper Mims and reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2007. Pay tribute to the reggae legends, many of which have played alongside Bob Marley (the event was originally called Bob Marley Day when it began in 1981, shortly after his death). Festival Founder Makeda Dread was close with Marley and wanted a way to remember him—right here in San Diego.
