Miami Reggae Festival fuses food, arts and reggae to raise awareness about extreme poverty on Friday, March 15, 2019 during the Winter Music Conference for a powerful night of reverence, livity, peace and unity - expanding consciousness through music, food and charity.

This year is headlined by the legendary Roots band from St. Croix Akae Beka (formerly Midnite), Akae Beka is the current manifestation of an evolving consciousness. Much like the archangel Michael who was responsible for the truths pertaining to the secrets of creation, so does lead singer Vaughn Benjamin today accept his role in a parallel time of rampant deception and broken taboos in the arenas of world leadership. Always rooted firmly in the teachings of His Imperial Majesty, Emperor Haile Selassie I, his personal evolution and reaffirmed purpose is manifested in his newly declared name from the Book of Enoch: Akae Beka, a sacred oath described therein, the Akae, the Beka, one and the same.

Also performing from Jamaica Jah9 and the Dub Treatment, deeply mystical, Jah9 has emerged from a chrysalis of poetry, dub and spirit to become a powerful femiNINE energy within a universal grassroots movement of consciousness. Inspired by the open spaces in the instrumental dub of 1970’s Jamaican roots music, Jah9 sings with a voice that belies the dimensions of her physical body, from a soul much older than its current vessel; “reminiscent of that darkly operatic wailer for truth & justice, Nina Simone.” Her philosophy–profoundly spiritual, and her style–Jazz on Dub.


Miami based Rhythm Flow, zen trance dub will pulse through the crowd, raising the vibration Colombian Zurich Based DJ Nustacris maintains the positive vibes throughout the night. Continuing the tradition of collecting non-perishable food items to distribute to those in need, the Miami Reggae Festival partners with Miami charity Hecho en Casa, Visual art displayed echoes sentiments felt throughout the human experience and plant-based and cruelty-free dishes complement the compassionate atmosphere.

Reggae music, a music now recognized as world heritage music by UNESCO (The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) brings together people from all walks of life in the spirit of “One Love” for an evening of sharing in culture and healing.

Miami Reggae Festival expresses our hopes and dreams of a world in which what we have in common is far greater than that which divides us. Through the Festival, we live not by looking at each other but by looking together in the same direction. We unify Miami’s diverse community at this event to aid Dade County residents living in poverty. Music has always had the power to unite and inspire humanitarianism. "The Miami Reggae Festival takes it to the top, offering the highest quality of performance, socio-political ambience and service to community available anywhere.

Additionally, Miami Reggae Festival has joined the rally to raise awareness about the positive impact and benefits of the gift cannabis, the plant for the mind, body and spirit. Music and herb just go together. In the spirit of unity we found it necessary to be a part of this rally. In the challenging economic climate we are living in today, we know now more than ever the need for a positive vibration. It is known that this herb is the healing of the nation. So come and join us in a day of good vibes as brother Bob Marley said: “let's get together and feel alright”.
