After 19 successful years in Manchester and St Elizabeth, reggae singjay Tony Rebel's annual birthday bash, Rebel Salute, has found a new home.

A billboard at the spacious Richmond Estate in Priory, St Ann, has announced that Rebel Salute, considered the island's leading conscious reggae showcase, will be held at that venue on January 18 and 19, 2013.

The event will be celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2013 and from its first staging in Brooks Park, Mandeville, in 1994, and after it was shifted to Port Kaiser Sports Complex in St Elizabeth, the Patrick 'Tony Rebel' Bailey/Flames Production event has served up the best in conscious, positive reggae music.

Rebel Salute has the reputation of being a drug-free, violence-free, alcohol-free and meat-free, family oriented event, and has attracted thousands of patrons each year.

Richmond Estate opened as a showground after the turn of the century, and has been home to many memorable events since then. It is considered one of the best outdoor show venues on the island. Some of the events include the last staging of Reggae Sunsplash, Jamaica Curry Festival, Jamaica International Kite Festival and Usain Bolt's 9.58 Party.
