The 2nd annual Reggae Jam – Meeting of the Legends, music festival will take place on Sunday, December 29 from 1 p.m. to 11 p.m. at the Ronald L. Book Athletic Stadium on the FIU North Campus.

Headlined by Grammy award winning reggae band Steel Pulse, formed over 45 years ago in Birmingham, England, Steel Pulse was the first non-Jamaican band to receive a Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album. Also headlining is Grammy award winning reggae band Inner Circle, renowned for the “Bad Boys” movie theme song. Inner Circle founders, brothers Roger and Ian Lewis were recently awarded the Order of Distinction at this year’s National Honours and Awards in Jamaica. Also scheduled to appear is the grandson of Bob Marley, Skip Marley, the newest rising star in the family. His new single “Slow Down” has reached the top spot on the Billboard Reggae Digital Song Sales chart, two weeks after release.
