The tradition of asking the public for cans and bags of non-perishable foods as admission has always been a part of The Legends Of Rasta Reggae Festival, formally the Bob Marley Festival Tour (LORRF).This tradition has generated approximately $2,000,000 in cash and well over two million pounds of food, school supplies, boo
ks and other donations for nonprofit organizations throughout the US.
-Nuestra “Esperanza” es que gracias a nuestra Campaña en Kickstarter, alcancemos nuestro objetivo de $165,000 USD en 2017- dijo Sirron.
– Our “HOPE” is that we are able to reach our Kickstarter funding goal of $165,000 in 2017, enabling us to take the LORRF to at least two to three cities. This “HOPE” gives us meaning and fills us with optimism; we believe it will happen. – said Sirron. Texas and California are the two states producers have selected for the 2017 Festival along with a third state, which will be chosen based on a social media poll. Texas y California serán los dos estados en los que se presentará el Festival. El tercero se decidirá por medio de una encuesta en redes sociales.
The campaign allows fans, vendors, and sponsors to have access to Reserved Tickets, All Access Passes, Early Bird Vendor Discount, First Pick Vouchers and Sponsor Award packages. This inclusiveness is about people having a say in producing, artist selection and at least one place where the Festival is held; the end game for us is the “HOPE” that your opinion is validated ad truly does provide “HOPE” around the world.
-Each year performers are invited to partner with the Festival and this always includes invitations to possible Legend Honorees. Selected regionally popular reggae and world beat acts are also chosen from a worldwide performer pool available to producers to complete the lineup, with special preferences give to Women, and featuring a collection of talented ladies performing as the “Good Karma Devas”-says Sirron Kyles, Executive Producer.
