Peter Tosh EarthStrong Celebration Honors Reggae Legend

Thanks to his tenure as a founding member of The Wailers and a successful stint as a solo artist, Jamaica's Peter Tosh is an icon of reggae music. Tosh, who was also an outspoken activist that fought for equal rights and drug law form and crusaded against police brutality, was tragically taken from us in 1987, but his legend will live on forever. Tosh's Family hosts an annual event paying tribute to the guitarist with their Peter Tosh EarthStrong Celebrations. This year's event is set for October 19 and 20 at the Peter Tosh Memorial Gardens in Belmont, Jamaica.

Previous lineups for the event have featured performances by Bunny Wailer, Andrew Tosh and Tosh 1, Sizzla, Kymani Marley, Bushman and other reggae legends. This free event takes place over two days, with the musical performances scheduled for Sunday, October 20. The 2013 and previous Peter Tosh EarthStrong Celebrations are put together by The Tosh Estate, made up of Peter’s 10 children, whose mission is to carry on the important work of their father by raising awareness of his message.
