Belmont Westmoreland Excursion Peter Tosh Memorial Garden
2018 Peter Tosh Music Festival
The Peter Tosh Music Festival returns to the Peter Tosh Museum at the Pulse Center in Kingston, Jamaica October 18-21, 2018. The Peter Tosh Museum is again presenting this year’s event. The weekend’s festivities, set to coincide with Peter’s Earth Strong (birthday) October 19, will include musical performances, a ceremony to distribute the first ever Peter Tosh Awards, and a celebratory gala.
The Peter Tosh Awards recognize those individuals who have contributed in a major way to furthering the goals of Peter’s activism during his life and career. Three awards will be bestowed during the ceremony. The Peter Tosh Equal Rights Award will honor an individual whose efforts advance the cause of equal rights for all. The Peter Tosh Steppin’ Razor Award will recognize influential contributors to the arts and entertainment. Finally, the Legalize It Award will distinguish the recipients as leaders in advancing Peter’s efforts to legalize cannabis and encourage cannabis research throughout the world.
Team Tosh is honored to welcome back LUCIANO (a/k/a The Messenger) to perform again at this year’s event as well as the 809 Band. Additional talent will be announced in the coming weeks.
