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.
