12/28/2018 by Reggaeville
Miami's iconic 9 Mile Music Festival returns after a year hiatus, stronger, better and more alive than ever on March 19, 2019. Once again happening at the Historic Virginia Key Park, this time celebrating 25 years since the creation of the festival.
The first confirmed artists: Shabba Ranks, Sizzla, Busy Signal, Capleton, Spice, Barrington Levy, Mighty Crown and NAS!
The 9 Mile Music Festival began in 1993 as a musical testament by Cedella Marley Booker to the life and philosophy of her son, world renowned artist Bob Marley. Though the Festival has changed names several times over the last two decades, it remains inclusive and welcoming of all forms of music including Reggae, R&B , Urban, Latino and many other various sounds.
As with every year, a donation of 4 canned goods is required as part of the admission to the event. Through out the years over 3 million canned goods were collected and distributed to homeless shelters and domestic centers throughout Miami; feeding families in need for months. For 25 years, the concert has required canned goods in addition to the price of admission, and it always will.
Tickets are on sale now and more artists will be announced in the next weeks.
