“Wake up and turn me loose…Got to have Kaya now!” Bob Marley
Fruit of Life Productions continues their announcements of major headlining artists as 2018 Grammy-nominated Reggae star, Chronixx joins the Kaya Fest 2018 all-star line-up. Earlier this week, Cypress Hill, Action Bronson, Anuhea, and a special guest appearance by Tom Morello were also added to the second annual Kaya Fest roster to be held April 28 and 29 at the NOS Events Center, located at 689 S E Street in San Bernardino, California 92408.
In addition to the new artists announced, this year all five Marley brothers (Stephen, Ziggy, Damian, Julian and Ky-Mani) return for a second historic performance, along with their father’s contemporary, reggae legend Toots Hibbert & The Maytals. They are joined by Marcia Griffiths of the I-Three, foundation reggae band Inner Circle—who celebrate their 50th year in the reggae industry this year—as well as the original Reggae Ambassadors Third World, Indubious and Roots Of Creation. The Kaya Fest line-up will also showcase the next generation of Marley music makers: Bob’s talented grandchildren Skip Marley, Jo Mersa Marley, Bambaata, and Shacia Payne Marley. More artists are still to be added to the star-studded lineup, and will be announced as the bookings are confirmed.
The historic NOS Events Center venue will provide a perfect setting for the Music and Awareness festival, whose stated goal is to educate, inspire and encourage positive public awareness of the vast medical and industrial potential of cannabis, which became legal in California as of January 1, 2018—and in numerous other states across the United States and the world at large. The festival also celebrates the 40th anniversary of the release of Bob Marley’s iconic album, Kaya.
“We are delighted and honored to be hosting the second annual Kaya Fest in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of our father’s album, Kaya.” says festival founder Stephen Marley. “My brothers and I are grateful to all of those who are participating with us.”
