Rebel Salute 2018
January is a good month for reggae-lovers with Rebel Salute primed and ready for 12-13 January at Grizzly’s Plantation Cove, Priory, St Ann.
This highly anticipated reggae showcase got its start back in 1994 as a means of commemorating the birthday of reggae icon Patrick “Tony Rebel” Barrett; 2018 marks the event’s 25th anniversary.
The line-up on Friday, 12 January features artistes such as Tarrus Riley, Marion Hall, No-Maddz, Wayne Wonder, Ras-T and the man whose birthday started it all – Tony Rebel.
On Saturday, Cocoa Tea, Jessie Royal, Beenie Man, Agent Sasco and Queen Ifrica and many others will take to the stage.
Gates open at 5pm and the show gets going at 7pm. Presold general admission tickets are on sale for JMD $4500 with presold VIP tickets at JMD $9000.
Owing to the event’s meat-free policy, food vendors on site will be serving a Jamaican vegetarian menu. There will also be authentic Jamaican arts and crafts on display and for sale.
Along with meat-free, Rebel Salute maintains a drug-free, violence-free, and alcohol-free environment.
