Last year, Reggae Land was nominated in three categories at the UK Festival Awards. These included Best Small Festival, Best New Festival and Best Metropolitan Festival. Last year’s staging of the event saw the likes of Shaggy, Julian Marley, Inner Circle and Collie Buddz.

According to UK event discovery platform Skiddle, Reggae Land will also have “a Flea market, a fairground, an entire Carnival Float stage along with dancers, VIP zone, festival merchandise, mouth-watering Caribbean Food Village as well as plenty of drinks in the Rum Shacks, Gin Bars and Caribbean cocktail bars.”

Reggae Land is only one of many popular festivals in Europe dedicated to honouring the Jamaican genre. Some others are Rototom Sunsplash, Summerjam, Reggae Sun Ska, Uppsala Reggae Festival, Seasplash Festival and Ruhr Reggae Summer Festival.
