The inaugural edition of the Miami Beach Pop Festival is now set to include an All-Star Celebration of Bob Marley, a super-jam session in which various artists will come together to celebrate the late Reggae singer, who died of skin cancer at the young age of 36.

Lead by Marley's sons, Stephen Marley and Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley, artists slated to perform at the jam include Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler and Venezuelan pop singer Nacho, among other as-yet-unannounced acts.

"Bob Marley is perhaps the most beloved artist in the world, and his unifying message is exactly what Miami Beach Pop is all about," said festival co-founder, Paul Peck. "The impact of his music and spirit cannot be understated."

"We are honored to create this historic show during sunset on the first day of the festival," Beck added. "It will be an unforgettable moment in time."

The first-ever Pop Festival is set to be held between November 8 and 10 this year in South Beach, Miami. Other artists in the festival's debut lineup include Chance the Rapper, The Raconteurs, Juanes and Maggie Rogers, among others.
