The new generation of artistes are ready to shine at the One Love Music Festival, which starts tomorrow at Rose Hall in Montego Bay, St James.

The two-day fundraiser celebrates the life of Bob Marley, and will benefit a number of ongoing charities, including SOS Children's Village, through the Bob Marley Foundation, Rose Hall Developments and Sandals Foundation.

line-up includes international acts Akon, Nico & Vinz, Kymani Marley, Morgan Heritage, Tessanne Chin, Nadine Sutherland, Jesse Royal, NoMaddz, Teflon, Tanto Metro & Devonte and Iba Mahr, but will also have new generation artistes Kranium, CK, Devin Di Dakta, Ikaya, D'Burnz, Sabrina the Diva and will be hosted by Iceman and ZJ Sparks.

Also on the line-up is third generation musical Marley, Skip (born 1996), who is flying the flag high with his recent single and video Cry To Me which was released on the Tuff Gong label and reached number one on the EDM.com chart. He recently brought success to the new Sandals global ad campaign with his recording of his grandfather's classic Three Little Birds.

Marley's daughter, Tuff Gong CEO Cedella Marley, said he would undoubtedly have been proud to see his musical and social legacy extended through the event and via the upcoming artistes. "It's great to continue to spread love and positivity through this exciting fusion of young and seasoned acts on the line-up."
