Damian, Julian, and big bro Stephen are back on the Nine Mile bill.
See Crossfade's righteous, nine-part guide to Marley Fest 2012, AKA Nine Mile Music Festival.

About 13 spliffs after writing about Stephen, Damian, and Julian Marley dropping out of the Nine Mile Music Festival, we here at Crossfade decided that this alleged cancellation wasn't true. We became convinced it was all part of a vast Babylonian conspiracy and the Marley bros would still be showing up for the fest.

Turns out, we weren't too far off the mark. The Marley bros are back on the Nine Mile bill. And just now, Stephen Marley has issued a statement via Ghetto Youths International, confirming his, Damian, and Julian's performances at the festival.

An Official Announcement from Stephen Marley, Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley, and Julian Marley Regarding the 9 Mile Music Festival 2012

Stephen Marley , Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley , and Julian Marley are pleased to confirm that on
Saturday March 3 , 2012 they will in fact be performing at the 9 Mile Music Festival due to the love of their fans and the music. "We are in it for the Love." -- Stephen Marley

We are glad to hear the Marley Bros are back on the show, especially since it's taking place outside of Downtown for the first time in almost twenty years, and moving to Historic Virgina Key Beach, Miami's first black beach and a local home of good vibes, sunshine, cool breeze, and the Biscayne Bay.

Also, reggae legend Burning Spear is one of the best to have ever done it.

$50.00 TO SEE MORE THAN 10 ARTISTS IS PRETTY CHEAP WHEN YOU HAVE TO PAY THAT PRICE OR MORE TO SEE ONE ARTIST.
