Bob Marley Outernational


"Bob Marley Outernational is an event that has run annually in Western Australia since 1981.  Celebrating the life and musical legacy of the great Robert Nesta Marley. With the aim of showcasing a diverse range of reggae music, paying homage to the roots and foundation artists, whilst highlighting the ever evolving Jamaican music genre, and providing a forum for local acts to perform and develop.   Over its 30 year history it has featured international, national and local reggae and dancehall bands and dj's. Every year part proceeds are donated to various worthy causes, and in the past this has included community radio stations, third world schools, assistance for the disabled, the victims of the Haiti Earthquake and clean water projects in Africa through Oxfam" ( Source -

We would have loved to attend this event as we love the music, message, and the fact that the event is also raising funds for Oxfam Australia.  We hope it will be a great success, be lots of fun and raise lots of money for these projects and that we can attend next year.
