Rebel Salute 2016

Rebel Salute 2016

Every January, thousands of reggae music lovers make the pilgrimage to Rebel Salute for a world-class event that delivers a spectacular experience of authentic roots reggae, wholesome culture and healthy living. For over two decades, Rebel Salute has brought the richest traditions of reggae music to one of the largest and most discerning audiences of any music festival in the Caribbean. Reggae artiste Tony Rebel pioneered and has preserved a unique family-friendly event that promotes the most positive aspects of reggae music, and by extension the best of Jamaican culture. 

Set in a vast venue that overlooks the Caribbean Sea, the festival offers “Saluters” a range of locally and internationally acclaimed artistes who perform from dusk ‘til dawn, food vendors who only serve healthy “ital” cuisine, and an arts village with an array of indigenous jewelry, clothing and craft items on sale. Rebel Salute has maintained a strict no-meat, no-alcohol policy that has set the event apart from all others, since its inception. 

In 2016, Rebel Salute introduced its newest innovation – the “Herb Curb”.  The enclosed adults-only area features exhibits, herb practitioners, educators, speakers and medical professionals who explore everything from the sacramental to the medicinal marvels of marijuana. The Herb Curb also features a smoking lounge by the seaside. The festival also offers a campsite, conveniently located on a grassy area adjacent to the festival grounds, only steps away from a beautiful beach washed by the Caribbean Sea. Hailed today as a spiritual renaissance, Rebel Salute has become the bedrock for the exposure and celebration of Jamaican roots music, and the festival of choice for the reggae connoisseur.

The Rebel Salute festival provides an arts village with over 20 exhibitors who offer a dazzling array of art and craft items throughout the event.  The deftly crafted indigenous works, many of which are inspired by the Rastafarian culture and don the signature red, yellow and green colors, include quintessential Jamaican items such as glazed pottery, straw goods and brightly-coloured fabrics. You will find beautiful wood carvings, hand-made jewelry, fashionable sandals/shoes and island-style clothing, all giving you pieces of Jamaica’s culture to take home.  Rebel Salute merchandise will also be on sale, ensuring that your memorable experience of the festival will never be forgotten! 

Since its inception over 20 years ago, Rebel Salute has maintained a strict no-meat, no-alcohol policy, in its relentless pursuit of promoting healthy lifestyles. The festival is renowned for offering delicious “ital” healthy food – including fish, vegetarian and raw food dishes sold by a wide range of food vendors, many of whom have been with Rebel Salute for several years. Sumptuous Jamaican cuisine is at the heart of menus that include ital stew, ackee and saltfish (Jamaica’s national dish), mixed vegetables, vegetable chunks with beans, curry tofu, bammy, live burgers and pizzas. Natural juices from fruits and vegetables – some prepared on the spot –are also available. There are fruits galore, including oranges, sugar cane and bananas, and the festival would not be complete without Jamaica’s famous coconut water and jelly.
