A statue of late Jamaican reggae legend Bob Marley is to be erected in the tiny Serbian hamlet of Banatski Sokolac, organisers of a rock music festival there said last week.
"We are honoured to announce that the first monument in Europe of the reggae legend Bob Marley will be erected in Banatski Sokolac," said the Internet site of the "Rock Village" festival.
"Our village thus enters into history and supporters and all those who respect this 'liberty fighter armed with a guitar' can take part in the unveiling ceremony" on August 23, it added.
The rock festival, first held in the northeastern village in 2005, will be opened by Del Arno Band, one of the most influential reggae groups in the Balkans, and Jamaican act Ras Abraham & the Irie Vibes.
Marley died of cancer 27 years ago.
