Julian Marley playing at Ragga Muffins Festival Feb. 23, 2009
It's time again for the annualRagga Muffins Festival to take over Long Beach--and this year, the festival is dedicated to Bob Marleywho passed nearly 30 years ago (yes, it has been that long since the music legend left us). But this is no time for mourning! The Ragga Muffins Festival is a two-day reggae extravaganza featuring some of the finest musicians Jamaica has to offer. Find out how to win a pair of tickets to the first day on Saturday, Feb. 19 after the jump.
Saturday's smokin' lineup includes Bunny Wailer (an original member of the Wailers alongside Bob), Rebelution, Gyptian and Half Pint, while Sunday's roster boasts joints by Israel Vibration, Gentleman, I-Octane and Marcia Griffiths. Plus, with dozens of vendors selling wares and globally inspired munchies--at least four Jamaican eateries alone--the air is sure to be thick with good vibes and music all weekend long. (Erin Dewitt)
