New Tune For Reggae Sunsplash

Concert event moves to Ocho Rios from August's heat to February's cool

nights of concerts, educational music seminars and exhibitions. Bob Marley Week, hosted by the Bob Marley Foundation, will begin on February 1, four days before Sunsplash, and will include touring opportunities ranging from Kingston to St. Ann.

Three-night packages, including tickets for festival concerts, start as low as $275 based on double occupancy (not including airfare). Special on-island tours will include a visit to the Nine Miles mausoleum, where Marley is buried, and a trip to Marcus Garvey’s house in St. Ann’s Bay; the price is $40 a person. For $80 per person, the Bob’s Hangout tour includes a stop at the Bob Marley Museum in Kingston for lunch, then a tour of Marley’s childhood home in Trench Town and Celebrity Park to see a statue in his honor.
