Grammy Award Winner Performing Artist STEPHEN “RAGGA” MARLEY stepping into the lineup at Garlic Fest

Stick Figure is saddened to announce due to unforeseen circumstances the band is unable to perform Garlic Fest on February, 10th. It’s with a heavy heart the band has to cancel the performance BUT Garlic Fest is proud to announce that legendary performing artist Stephen “Ragga” Marley will be stepping in to headline the South Florida Garlic Fest. Stephen is an eight-time Grammy Award winner, three times as a solo artist, twice as a producer and three times as a member of Ziggy Marley & The Melody Makers. Stephen “Ragga” Marley will bring his energized set to South Florida’s 19th Annual Garlic Fest which features homegrown talent, great music and amazing chefs. Garlic Fest looks forward to welcoming Stephen and his entire band to South Florida’s “Best Stinkin’ Party!”

This unique event crosses all cultural boundaries and ages, providing something for everyone featuring National Act Musical Entertainment, full liquor bars, bourbon bar, professional cooking competitions and demonstrations, over 200 unique vendors, children’s activities and amusement rides, Home Depot Garlic University and garlic-inspired gourmet cuisine will permeate the air for miles.

Our internationally award winning event kicks off on Friday, Feb. 9th at 5:00 pm and continues non-stop through Sunday, Feb. 11th. This year, great live music featuring a variety of musical genres from alternative rock, reggae, country, blues, disco and Latin. National acts this year are Hoobastank, Stephen Marley and The Donna Summer Celebration featuring Donna’s sister Mary Gaines Bernard!

Friday night, Hoobastank plays their chart topping hits include “The Reason”, “Crawling in the Dark”, and “Running Away” Lead singer Doug Robb, Dan Estrin and their cohorts have come full circle, taking the reins of their collective destiny, just as they did back in the ’90s when, barely out of high school, they charged out of their West Valley ’hood to become part of a posse of similarly brash and versatile young SoCal hard rock bands like Incubus and Linkin Park.

On Saturday night, we present Stephen Marley – eight-time Grammy Award winner, three times as a solo artist, twice as a producer and three times as a member of Ziggy Marley & The Melody Maker

On Sunday afternoon, put on your disco clothes and dancing shoes for the Donna Summer Celebration featuring Donna Summer’s sister and long-time back-up singer – Mary Gaines Bernard! Mary sings all the hits of Donna Summer, the Queen of Disco and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member. In addition to a long list of talented local acts rocking the Garlic Fest stage this year we proudly present The Fabulous Fleetwoods, Oogee WaWa, The Ries Brothers, Colin Axxxwell and Mitch Herrick & The Homegrown Sinners.

So Garlic Heads regale, rejoice, refresh and renew at the 19th Annual Garlic Fest on Feb. 9 – 11, 2018. For more information, visit our website at GarlicFestFL.com and don’t miss the “Best Stinking Party in South Florida”.
