The 22nd annual reggae event’s lineup also includes his father, uncles Damian and Julian Marley, Capleton, Tanya Stephens and Future Prezidents. On Sunday, Mersa Marley also will perform at the Get Together, a more intimate concert taking place at the Stage, 170 NE 38th St., Miami and featuring his dad and Kabaka Pyramid, a producer and singer from Kingston, Jamaica.
