Inaugural Peter Tosh Music Festival Seeks to Expand Late Reggae Icon’s Legacy

The Tosh family is also considering the launch of a branded cannabis product line.

Thirty years after he was murdered at his Kingston, Jamaica, home by a longstanding acquaintance he had befriended, reggae icon Peter Tosh’s multi-faceted legacy will be celebrated at the inaugural Peter Tosh Music Festival on Oct. 19-22 in Kingston.

The festival is presented by the Peter Tosh Museum, a partnership between prominent Jamaican businessman Kingsley Cooper, founder of Pulse Investments Limited (which includes a thriving modeling agency), Andrea Marlene Brown (Tosh’s common law wife at the time of his Sept. 11, 1987 murder) and the Peter Tosh Estate.
