The 2nd Annual Kaya Fest

The 2nd Annual Kaya Fest

Marking the 40 year anniversary of Bob Marley's acclaimed Kaya album, Stephen Marley's Fruit of Life Productions presents the second annual Kaya Fest on April 28th & 29th in San Bernardino, California.

The 2nd Annual Kaya Fest Brothers Stephen, Ziggy, Damian, Julian and Ky-Mani lead a solid lineup that includes reggae legends Toots & The Maytals, Marcia Griffiths, Inner Circle, Reggae Ambassador's Third World, Indubious and Roots Of Creation. The event will also showcase the next generation of Marley's, Bob's talented grandchildren Skip Marley, Jo Mersa Marley, Daniel "Bambaattaa" Marley and Shacia Payne Marley. Check the Kaya Fest website often as more artists are still being added.

The 2-day event is described as a "music and awareness" festival, whose stated goal is to educate, inspire and encourage positive public awareness of the vast medical and industrial potential of cannabis. The festival experience also includes yoga, Nyabinghi drummers, arts and craft vendors and much more.

"Kaya Fest is not a smoke-out thing," says festival founder Stephen Marley. "What we really try to emphasize is education before recreation—to get one to learn about the medical uses, the industrial uses, the environmental benefits, the healing potential of the plant. And to ask why really is there such a fight against this plant? All these years doctors have not been allowed to research it. Most of them haven't really studied it at all. It's like a conspiracy. Why they don't want us to reap the benefits of this plant? They try to use the whole stigma of the smoking and the getting high to put a cloud over it."

General admission 2-day tickets start at $99 with children 5 and under free. VIP tickets featuring expedited entry, VIP viewing area and private bathrooms among other ammenities are also available at $199.



Doors for the all ages event open at 1:00PM. The National Orange Show (NOS) Events Center is located at 689 S E Street in San Bernardino, California 92408. For more information visit kayafestivals.com.
