Stonebwoy, a Ghanaian reggae musician, is one of the confirmed performers for Rebel Salute, which will take place January 20–21 at Grizzly’s Plantation Cove in Priory, St. Ann.

Stonebwoy, a multi-award winner, was added to the line-up, and recording artist and event organizer Tony Rebel, stated since Stonebwoy has always set out on a journey and has advocated for bridging the gap between Caribbean and African-linked roots, the Rebel Salute stage provides him with the ideal setting to display his talent.

“Stonebwoy has always been an advocate for a platform to bridge the gap between our Caribbean and African-linked roots. Over the years we have added performers from the continent, and Stonebwoy is an avid reggae fan and considers himself a reggae artiste. We believe that the Rebel Salute stage and audience is a perfect platform to showcase the mutual connection,” Tony Rebel said to the outlet Jamaica Observer.

The news of the greatest cultural and musical events in Jamaica returning after a one-year hiatus, came in as Queen Ifrica,show co-producer and spouse to reggae legend Tony Rebel has made it known that Rebel Salute, one of Jamaica’s biggest music festivals, will be back next year.

This year’s staging is scheduled on January 20 and 21 at Grizzly’s Plantation Cove in St. Ann, where it was last performed virtually in 2021. Since its inception in 1994, the Rebel Salute Music Festival has taken place annually in Jamaica around January 15th, the day that reggae legend Tony Rebel was born (January 15th 1962). Its home base, the Grizzly’s Plantation Cove, Priory, St. Ann.  She made the news on Sunday during the Marcus Garvey commemoration held at the Irie FM offices in Ocho Rios, St. Ann.

“Ai, before mi guh no furda enuh, Rebel Salute 20th a January and 21st a January yuh done know enuh. If everything a kip, dah show deh affi kip!  Who seh Rebel Salute fi kip? Seh Rebel Salute fi kip!” she declared during her performance at the event’s concert.

Her companion Tony Rebel has also guaranteed that the event in January 2023 “will be the most memorable yet” and that the lineup is strong. “Up, up, up,” he noted on his Instagram page where he shared a poster of the  2023 show.

 

 

‘Teach the Children’ singer stated in an interview with Jamaica Observer that, “The only year we didn’t keep Rebel Salute [was] 2022. We did it virtual in 2021 and it was very good, and the last live show was 2020. For the one year that we paused it, I think absence made the heart grow fonder. The absence will make the presence better. Everybody curious, everybody is anxious, everybody wants it.”

Along with more recent acts like Sizzla, Capleton, Richie Spice, Queen Ifrica, and Tony Rebel himself, the festival has also featured Jesse Royal, Chronixx, and Koffee over the years. However, it has also featured a number of veterans from the 1960s, 1970s, and 1990s, such as Echo Minott, Third World, Inner Circle, the Mighty Diamonds, and Johnny Clarke.

And next year lined up promises the best result with Big Mountain, a reggae band from Ghana with gold-selling, Billboard charting, and international fame, as well as Stonebwoy, Third World, Kabaka Pyramid, Capleton, TOK, and I-Wayne.

The audience can enjoy performances by the top musicians in a variety of compositions, playing Reggae, Dancehall, Roots reggae, Reggae fusion, etc. at the event, which is regarded as one of the greatest cultural and musical events in Jamaica.

The revolutionary Herb Curb, which began in 2015 when Rebel Salute became the first music festival to be granted exemption status by the Government to also advertise as a marijuana festival under the revision to the Dangerous Drugs Act, will once more be held in 2023, but with a significant change.

The Herb Curb at Rebel Salute is a private space by the sea at the back of the venue. It presents ganja users and those who are curious about the herb with educational, spiritual, medical, and recreational goods and content.

It includes craftsmen, herbalists, teachers, presenters, and medical experts. Additionally, a designated smoking area with seating and a broadcast from the main stage is there. Free admission is offered to children under 12 at Rebel Salute. However, the Herb Curb, which is gated and guarded by police officers and private security guards, is off-limits to anyone under the age of 18.

Persons must provide valid government-issued identity, such as a driver’s license, passport, or National Identification card, in order to access the Herb Curb.
Each person is entitled to carry the allowed amount of ganja during Rebel Salute in accordance with the changes to the applicable laws. There will be specific smoking spots, though, inside the Herb Curb.
