Miami Reggae Festival 2013

  1. 1. The Miami Reggae Festival or as our yogi friends call it the One Love Nutrifest is where you wanna be at Coconut Grove, FL’s Peacock Park on Saturday, November 23rd simply causeyou care! The 4th annual event will showcase a global mix of notable artists. Miami Reggae Festival aims to highlight the power of word, sound and art at its day-long event and will donate a portion of all ticket proceeds toTECHO.This festival where the admission requires a mandatory minimum donation of two non-perishable food items per person, features a lineup as diverse as Miami itself. The performers themselves represent a collective conscious of cultural awareness, of giving back and we all know how much LIVE MUSIC ROCKS! At Miami Reggae Festival, musicians from around the world will treat music lovers to a full day of international sounds. Joining Jamaican reggae progeny Stephen "Ragga" Marley on the lineup are Tiken Jah Fakoly from Africa’ s Ivory Coast, Cultura Profética from Puerto Rico, Natiruts from Brazil, Midnite from St. Croix USVI,Gondwana from Chile, Black Slate & Carroll Thompson from the United Kingdom, Bachaco from Venezuela and Causion from Antigua. The event also features DJ performances from Don One Musical Showcase, Cornerstone Sounds & DJ Majestic plus MC Lance O of Kulcha Shok Muzik.
  2. 2. Miami Reggae Festival is not merely an event, it is a journey directed by the unifying languages of the Arts. This festival invites the world to be a captive audience to the works of artists embodied by peace, love and unity. Coming together to raise awareness and feed local familes. Thery know together we can help make a difference and outnumber hunger. In This consciousness evolution we must be ready. As Gandhi so humbly said: "be the change you want to see in the world" Miami will showcase the beauty we are capable of and an expression of the connected energies that we share hence from which we grow. We are all infinitely connected, we are all one in love! Art and Music have been the signpost of moral clarity since the 1960’s. Miami began one of the nation’s foremost art festivals a la Coconut Grove Art Fest, the 1970 began the Art Basel era. In 1972, Miami Dade Cultural Affairs was born, to show the importance of art as an element of social progress. 1973 saw the Art Basel’s special exhibition providing galleries from all over the world, over an audience of diverse cultures. Diversity in art and music continued with the birth of Miami Goombay Festival 1976, the 80’s Orange Bowl Parade, Miami Grand Prix., 80’s-90’s, Art Deco Weekend, Marley Fest, Taste of the Grove, Calle Ocho, Miami Carnival, Hispanic Heritage Fest, among others. These festivals addressed music and art as a means of entertainment and a building block of vibrant cultures from the world over. Rockers Movement address these moral issues with a bonding of music and art, or music as art, our mission is truly to transform the world communities through inspired action, which help build self- reliance.
  3. 3. Rockers Movement is Feeding the People! The people behind Rockers Movement, a premier event production company with over 15 years successful events to date, understand the importance of using the transformative force of music to stir social conscience, to actualize social change. That is precisely what they aim to accomplish with the launch of WE THE PEOPLE, FEED THE PEOPLE, using first-rate festivals to empower each other to help people in need of food assistance. This food drive festival in Miami on November 23rd with at Coconut Grove’s Peacock Park is an event not to miss "It was important we started in our own back yard," said event organizer Alfonso D'Niscio Brooks. "1 in 6 Americans are at risk for hunger. It’s doubly important we not wait for a natural disaster to recognize the growing hunger epidemic, or to seek out ways to help our brothers and sisters." The simple truth is change is possible within one generation. Whilst a great deal of today’s media paints a very negative picture of the world’s level of development, we share ‘tremendous success stories’ highlighting the reality: great progress is being made. A mixture of factors which has seen the decline including new technology, better policies, more sensible governing, aid and due to the work of the people themselves
  4. 4. "Hunger knows no color, no creed," Brooks said. "That's why it was critical for us to ensure we offer a lineup that reflects the Miami landscape." Considering the current economic climate we have made the entry FREE before 3 p.m. with the food donation allowing everyone the opportunity to be a part of the event. Festival officials and their media partners also are encouraging attendees to ride their bikes and make use of our bike valet or use public transportation to get to the festival. Do have a nice walk and enjoy the beauty Coconut Grove has to offer. There are so many things to do in Coconut Grove. From the The Barnacle Historic State Park, to the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. Visit the neighborhood restaurants and stores and yep smiles are the norm. Coconut Grove is the perfect Rockers Movement haven of peace loving folks full of IRIE VIbes they live by the the laws of One Love. They are opening their town to us to share in the vibe and the spirit of One Love. Let's return the favor and tell them why their townROCKS with an awesome event. And it is just as important for the benefactor of the event to serve a diverse population, ensuring the core message of unity and humanitarianism. Event organizers chose TECHO! Keeping in the spirit of unity, attendees are asked to contribute two or more non-perishable food items as part of the cost of admission. Proceeds from the event will benefit TECHO, a youth led non-profit organization present in Latin America & the Caribbean. Through the joint work of families living in extreme poverty with youth volunteers, TECHO seeks to overcome poverty in slums. TECHO is born everyday from the encounter of volunteers and families living in slums, in working together to overcome poverty and exclusion. Their mission is to end hunger by providing immediate access to nutritious food, leading hunger and poverty advocacy efforts, and transforming lives through innovative programming and education.

In staying with this trend since inception Rockers Movement has included live art in its festival and will continue so this year with an amazing gallery display to follow the artist’s on stage work. Some of the top talent in the game will be painting live this year. We will be showcasing a few of what Miami has to offer. Come see for yourself!
