Damian Marley, Stephen Marley, and Julian Marley will be bringing their new collaboration to Liverpool International Music Festival taking place in Liverpool from Sunday 18th August and 22nd September.

The three sons of reggae legend Bob Marley appear at one of four days of FREE events at Sefton Park as part of the Ghetto Youths International Crew which also includes Stephen's son Jo Mersa, Cheeks, illestr8, Christopher Ellis, Daniel Bambaata Marley, Black Am I, Wayne Marshall, Johnathon Malcolm, and Javaughn.

The collective will appear on Sunday 25th August performing on the World Music Stage which, from 12 to 8pm, will also star international artists such as Trinidadian singer Machel Montano, Navin Kundra, Portico Quartet, Panjabi Hit Squad, and Robbo Ranx.

LIMF music curator, Yaw Owusu, said, "When I first started programming this festival back in February, a performance from a Marley brother was on my wish-list for the World Music Stage. So to say I'm over the moon about getting not one but three of the leading reggae stars would be an understatement!"
