Big news from famous Reggae Jam Festival out of Germany: Reggae Jam goes to London this August for the first time.
From the Rivers of Bersenbrück (Germany) to the Heart and Soul of UK’s Reggae scene, one of the most popular reggae festivals in Europe is finally coming to London. Since 1994, the superstars of reggae have been doing the honours and filling the sacred walls of the monastery garden in the small northern German town with Caribbean “joie de vivre”.
For the first time in its 28-year history, Reggae Jam is celebrating its out-of-town premiere – and not just anywhere, but in the London borough of Brent, the nucleus of Jamaican vibes. Bob Marley lived in this multicultural melting pot in the 70s. From Brent, stars made in Britain like Dennis Brown, Gregory Isaacs or Gappy Ranks carried reggae from here into the worldwide panorama.
There are enough reasons to celebrate a special festival on a special weekend to kick off Reggae Jam Intl, London. The huge event will happen in August 6th and 7th at Fryent Country Park (in the shadow of Wembly Stadium) and it will become a reggae summer vibe wonderland for the whole family. Two days of music, food, drinks, special festival & craft market. Of course, Rum Punch, Rum Bar, Walking Acts, Kids Corner and many more. Let’s not forget there will be more than 40 top international recording artists and almost 20 sound systems, who seamlessly hand over the microphone to each other on two adjacent stages because the Reggae Jam will bring the extraordinary festival atmosphere Made in Germany to the British metropolis to really let it rip.
The Royal Family of Reggae, the Grammy award-winning Morgan Heritage, are not to be missed, as are Alborosie, Anthony B, I-Octane, Bunji Garlin, Etana and many many well-known names.
