The William Morris Agency will launch the Marley Family Presents: Roots, Rock and Reggae festival this summer.

Starring Bob Marley's sons Ziggy, Stephen, Julian and Damian, the fest is slated to hit about 20-25 cities. The outing will run from July to September. This is the first time the Marley family is collaborating on a national tour that is this extensive.

A number of the headliners are supporting new albums. Stephen is scheduled to release a solo effort on Motown this fall. Ziggy is touring in support of this year's "Dragonfly" on Private Music/Arista. Julian rolled out "Time & Place" in November 2003 on Ghetto Youths/Tuff Gong Records.

Further details, including the full lineup, will be announced at a later date.
