10th Annual Monterey Bay Reggae Fest Boasts a Stellar Lineup of Artists
from Around the World!

Monterey California


Description: A&P Productions is proud to present the 10th Annual Monterey Bay Reggae Fest on Saturday September 3 and Sunday September 4 at the Monterey County Fairgrounds in Monterey, CA. MBRF boasts an international lineup of artists on two stages surrounded by 23 oak-studded acres of barefoot grass, plus numerous kids’ activities, a Rastafarian Museum and tons of international arts, crafts and food vendors.

In 1995 Robert Brown started the Monterey Bay Reggae Festival with a small budget and big dreams.  A few months after the initial 1995 festival, founder Robert Brown passed away unexpectedly, leaving his dreams in limbo.  Andre and Pam Smith, who had helped Robert the first year, stepped up and continued to fulfill Brown’s visions for the MBRF, bringing legendary performances to Monterey including Jimmy Cliff, Burning Spear, Culture, Justin Hinds, Morgan Heritage, Steel Pulse, Meditations, Israel Vibrations…the list goes on.  Now in its 10th year, the Monterey Bay Reggae Fest has grown to become a world-renown world music festival drawing people from around the country to the sleepy town of Monterey every Labor Day Weekend.
