Get ready for all the Caribbean vibes!

The 9th annual BeREGGAE Diaspora Music & Arts Festival is happening all weekend long at Piedmont Park, starting tonight. This year’s festival headliners are Jamaican dancehall artist Wayne Wonder, Atlanta icon, CeeLo Green and Latin sensation Tito Puente Jr, along with several other artists that’ll be performing. In case you aren’t familiar, the BeREGGAE Festival was created in 2013 “as a block-party style gathering to celebrate authentic afro Caribbean culture. As we grew, we began to focus on the intersectionality between the Caribbean, African and Black American cultures and create a space where we all feel represented.” Since the festival’s inception, it has evolved into “a unique, premium music and arts festival that centers the mental, spiritual, physical and emotional wellness of Black families.”
