The Annual 9 Mile Music Festival, now in its 22nd year, is an all day event honoring the life and philosophy of the legendary reggae star, Bob Marley and featuring top musical acts from around the world as well as popular local performers. People travel from around the United States, Canada and the Caribbean to attend this yearly event. Reaching across all divides and embracing an international community, the 9 Mile Music Festival draws the young at heart and encourages everyone to come together. The 9 Mile Music Festival began as a labor of love, pioneered by Cedella Marley Booker. It takes place every year in the warmth and sunshine of Miami, Florida.

Over the years the festival has had other names including “The Caribbean Music Festival.” It finally evolved into what is the “9 Mile Music Festival” today, named for the village of Nine Mile, the birthplace and final resting place of the legendary Bob Marley. It exemplifies the foundation and heart of our family. For this reggae music festival is more than just your average “concert”; it has a commitment to doing good and spreading love. The 9 Mile Music Festival is responsible for collecting over two (2) million canned goods over its 22-year span. In an effort to continuously give back to its community, four canned goods are required for entry along with a purchased admission. The canned goods that are collected are then distributed to shelters in Miami.

Tickets are $52.83 for General Admission and $178.74 for VIP and are on sale now at www.9milemusicfestival.com. Additionally four cans of food/person must be brought to the Festival on the day of show to gain admission. For more information call 877-440-8499 or go to: www.9milemusicfestival.com
