A new immersive experience is coming to Toronto and it’s a celebration of art, culture, and the pioneer of reggae himself, Bob Marley. Toronto’s Bob Marley experience will feature never-before-seen memorabilia and an experience that transports you to the Jamaican forest.

The event, called the Bob Marley One Love Experience, just debuted at London’s Saatchi Gallery and will soon make its way to Toronto for a six-week run.

Described as a “unique multi-room exhibit,” the Bob Marley experience will feature six massive distinct spaces, each of which is dedicated to a different chapter of the musician’s life and legacy.

“Visitors will venture through the One Love Forest, visit the Soul Shakedown Studio, and delve into a multi-sensory celebration of one of the world’s most beloved and unifying musical and cultural figures in this unique exhibition,” the description says.

Also featured at the exhibit are original works by internationally acclaimed artist Mr. Brainwash, complementing the theme in every room.

As part of the experience, you’ll also get to “chill out in a lush Jamaican forest,” and enjoy a virtual “Bob Marley concert/silent disco.”

Cedella Marley, who is Bob Marley’s daughter and the CEO of Bob Marley Group Of Companies, says that Toronto is the “perfect place” for the exhibition’s North American debut.

“Dad loved playing here and there is an incredible Caribbean community and reggae scene in the city. We can’t wait to bring the One Love Experience to Toronto fans,” said Marley in a press release.

The exhibit is presented by Lighthouse Immersive in collaboration with the Toronto Caribbean Carnival, which will return to the city for the first time in two years this summer.

It seems like you don’t need to be a reggae fan to appreciate all that this exhibit has to offer!
