The 2017 LORRFwww.LORRF.com Tour’s theme is ”HOPE”, and is all about LOVE = UNITY. El tema de LORRF 2017 es “Esperanza” y su objetivo es comunicar AMOR= UNIDAD -

The Tour’s focus is to provide “Food For The Hungry And Help For The Homeless” by bringing Reggae and World Beat artist´s performances to diverse crowds that enjoy conscious music of Unity, with others that share “HOPE”, while they become inspired to go out and spread the message of love, unity and the desire to help anyone in need. Our goal is to bring more awareness to these social issues- said Sirron Kyles, Executive Producer.

-El enfoque del Tour es proveer “Comida para los Hambrientos y Ayuda para los que no tienen Hogar” al llevar presentaciones de artistas de Reggae y World Beat Music a fans que disfrutan esta música cuyo objetivo es promover el amor y la unidad.- dijo Sirron Kyles, Productor Ejecutivo

The “HOPE” of the producers, is to use the Festival’s platform as a tool to try and bridge gaps of divisiveness in America and influence others around the world to do the same in inspiring movements of “HOPE” with the end game in mind: LOVE=UNITY.

The diversity of America is a reflection of the diversity of the participants of the Festival and their love for Reggae and World Beat music, with its constant message of “HOPE”, helping the underprivileged, and providing “Food for the Hungry and Help for the Homeless”; this is just who they are. Los fans de esta música aman ayudar a los demás, es lo que los define. 

 The tradition of asking the public for cans and bags of non-perishable foods as admission has always been a part of The Legends Of Rasta Reggae Festival, formally the Bob Marley Festival Tour (LORRF) www.lorrf.com. This tradition has generated approximately $2,000,000 in cash and well over two million pounds of food, school supplies, books and other donations for nonprofit organizations throughout the US. -Nuestra “Esperanza” es que gracias a nuestra Campaña Kickstarter alcancemos nuestro objetivo de $165,000 USD en 2017- dijo Sirron. 

 - Our “HOPE” is that we are able to reach our Kickstarter () funding goal of $165,000 in 2017, enabling us to take the LORRF to at least two to three cities. This “HOPE” gives us meaning and fills us with optimism; we believe it will happen. - said Sirron. Texas and California are the two states producers have selected for the 2017 Festival along with a third state, which will be chosen based on a social media poll. Texas y California serán los dos estados en los que se presentará el Festival. El tercero se decidirá por medio de una encuesta en redes sociales. 

 The campaign allows fans, vendors, and sponsors to have access to Reserved Tickets, All Access Passes, Early Bird Vendor Discount, First Pick Vouchers and Sponsor Award packages. This inclusiveness is about people having a say in producing, artist selection and at least one place where the Festival is held; the end game for us is the “HOPE” that your opinion is validated and truly does provide “HOPE” around the world.

Risks and challenges

History
Sirron Kyles, As Founder and Executive Producer, of the Legends of Rasta Reggae Festival, formally the Bob Marley Festival Tour, For 25 years I have produce the Festival in 45 + Cities Worldwide spreading Love, Unity and “Cultural Diversity “ through Reggae and World Beat Music’s, and the messages of Bob Marley's spirit.

With so much divisiveness being spread in the US especially after the presidential election, the 2017 “HOPE” Festival Tour, the need for the story and the reason I founded the Festival needs to be told.

The 2017 Tour will have a much stronger social media imprint, fans will have the chance to voice their opinions and choose from a list of acts they would like to see in each city the Festival stops.

As a result this Kickstarter funding platform and the services of Master Minds Management Group, co-producer of "Rasta Festival Backstage" the series is sure to become the next way to spread the power of Unity & Love and keep the momentum of the Festival alive for another 25 years.
