It’s all about spreading One Love and good music at the Bob Marley Birthday Fest today. In an homage to the reggae legend’s 72nd birth anniversary, his son, Grammy-nominated reggae artist Ky-Mani Marley, will be headlining the concert at the Dubai International Marine Beach, which also includes performances by the Maestro band, Redemption Band and reggae DJs. Jam to hits like No Woman, No Cry and I Shot the Sheriff, then chow down on delish bites from TruckersDXB food trucks at the venue. Tickets from Dh125 at virginmegastore.me; 21 years and above only.
Another Bob makes an appearance in Dubai – Bob Sinclar, the Grammy Award-nominated French DJ – who is performing at Billionaire Mansion at the Taj Hotel today. The record producer is known for reggaeinfluenced albums like Made in Jamaica and Disco Crash and collaborations with Madonna and Jamiroquai.
