Jah Cure, Chronixx, Steel Pulse announced for Reggae Geel 2017
The 39th edition of Reggae Geel will be taking place on August 4th and 5th this year.
Reggae Geel is one of the oldest festivals in Europe. This year's edition will be the 39th. With no less than seventy acts on five separate stages, Geel will be dominated by a tropical Jamaican atmosphere for two whole days.
On the Main Stage iconic names such as Jah Cure, Steel Pulse, Duane Stephenson and Christopher Martin will alternate with next generation reggae talents from Jamaica like rising star Chronixx and young acts such as Raging Fyah, Jesse Royal & Runkus.
In The Yard welcomes Hempress Sativa; sound system Soul Supreme will be playing in the Bounce Dancehall, and dub singer - drummer Blood Shanti can be found in the 18 Inch Corner alongside many other household names. Unique this year: The Heptones will be travelling down to Geel all the way from Kingston to appear on The Skaville stage.
Reggae Geel is for music lovers of all ages. The festival that once started small now has five stages with something for everyone. The shaded 18 Inch Corner with its romantically lit trees is especially popular with the younger crowd. There will also be entertainment for children. And at the Reggae Market you can find clothing, unique jewellery, records, musical instruments and exceptional international art. All in all Reggae Geel appeals to all senses.
Commitment to sustainability
Reggae Geel is proud to be an official Fair Trade festival. Additionally the festival has introduced a successful waste policy in recent years. Waste is collected and sorted for recycling everywhere and festival visitors are given Reggae Geel gadgets in exchange for empty plastic cups.
