VERY FIRST NAMES

21 April 2022

Reggae Geel 2022 is coming! Of course, you already knew that. The pre-sales have already started at lightning speed. Time to warm you up with some highlights of this year's edition.

We are proud to say that this year will be a special edition of Reggae Geel. On Saturday, August 6, it is the 60th Independence anniversary of our country of inspiration: Jamaica. And we celebrate it together with the Grammy-winners of Morgan Heritage. They will throw a party on the Main Stage on Saturday and bring along Laza Morgan (known from LMS).

The reggae legends of Third World are also happy to join in the festivities on the Main Stage. They have extra reason to celebrate. On August 6, they will be on stage for exactly 49 years. So many candles to blow out on Saturday!

Luciano and Christopher Ellis also bring a visit on the main stage. Both greats are assisted by the British producer’s duo Mafia & Fluxy. Lila Iké brings us a smooth mix of roots reggae, soul, and R&B, backed by the Indiggnation. We welcome Samory-I and Mortimer, two rising stars who grew big under the wings of Ovastand Records producer Winta James. By the way: today the Gratitude Riddim is released under his label. What a coincidence. And Marcus Gad carries us away on a soft carpet of his heavenly voice and spiritual melodies.

This year, we need to tighten the Bounce. Because "Energy God" Elephant Man is about to blow the roof off. And also Code Red Sound and Dynamq will provide tons of atmosphere on this stage in 2022.

Would you like to witness a first? Then you must be at the 18-Inch Corner. Gabre Selassie is taking his Kingston Dub Club out of the hills of the Jamaican capital. For the first time ever. We are honored that he chooses Reggae Geel just for that! Horace Andy (known from Massive Attack, among others) and Mighty Jah Observer, Gladdy wax, Blackboard jungle will bless the 18-inch stage.

Other artist like: African Head Charge, Adrian Sherwood, Herbalize it, The Chosen Few, Winston Francis, just to name of few should be seen at this year’s staging of reggae geel.
