About 9 Mile Music Festival:
25 YEARS OF MUSIC HISTORY
The 9 Mile Music Festival began in 1993 as a musical testament by Cedella Marley Booker to the life and philosophy of her son, world-renowned artist Bob Marley. Though the Festival has changed names several times over the last two decades, it remains inclusive and welcoming to all forms of music.
Throughout the years the festival has provided over 3 million canned goods since the inception of the festival. Distributing them to homeless shelters and domestic centers throughout Miami and feeding families in need for months has always been the mission. For 25 years, the concert has required canned goods in addition to the price of admission, and it always will.
“Together we can make a difference for those who are less fortunate. United we stand, divided we fall.”
