The time has finally come: Reggae Geel 2019 is in sight! Last year our 40th (!) edition turned out to be a sensational party – for which we’d like to congratulate and thank both our co-workers and visitors. And now it’s time to announce the first names for this year’s edition. It will be a fantastic edition, with temperatures well in the high tropics.
On Saturday we welcome no one less than Buju Banton. He’s been absent for 8 years and 7 months, but already his Long Walk to Freedom edition has been praised for attracting more than 40,000 reggae enthusiasts to Jamaica. This year, Reggae Geel has managed to add him to the line-up for the very first time, allowing him to detonate his major party bomb across the entire festival grounds! In other words: you don’t want to miss this artist during the festival season. Friday will be a blast too, with dancehall legend Busy Signal performing at the main stage. So, make sure to be well-rested, drink lots of energy-smoothies, and go crazy during his live-act!
Of course, Buju and Busy won’t be the only great artists you can enjoy at our festival. On Friday, the 2nd of August, The Congos, I Wayne, Bushman, Agent Sasco (aka Assassin), Kranium, Warrior Sound and many others will create a lively atmosphere. Acts such as Richie Spice, Sir David Rodigan meets King Jammy, Kumar and Keida will perform on Saturday, the 3rd. In a nutshell: 2 days, 80 acts and 4 stages covered in reggae-happiness!
What else does Reggae Geel have in store for you this year? Well, we proudly present to you our new Tallawah Stage. Tallawah is the hybrid merger of our former Yard and Skaville stages, where you will experience a mix of new talent, acoustic sets, reggae-yoga-sessions, ska artists and so much more.
And good news for the early birds amongst you. Our camping site will already be opened on Thursday, the 1st of August, at 6 p.m. Campers will not be bored though. Because that very same Thursday night our One Love Tent will gladly welcome you for a Free Pre-Party. Yes, you’ve heard us: a party without any entrance free!
So, let’s meet at Reggae Geel 2019, the festival known for its lively atmosphere, delicious food, delightful shops, eco-friendliness, fair-trade mentality and, most of all, its solidarity… More acts to be announced soon.
