What started as a small party in the woods, it is now the oldest and one of the leading reggae festivals in the world. Every summer, more than 45,000 reggae, dancehall and dubstep fans come to hang and skank at this summer reggae festival.
The festival originated as an outdoor reggae party in 1978. Three years later, the very first live concert was held on the festival grounds. Every year the number of visitors grew. The emphasis shifted more and more to live performances and big names from Jamaica were flown in for the festival. In barely five years, the audience increased tenfold.
The biggest reggae artists in the world love to come to Reggae Geel. In the course of history, Black Uhuru, Shaggy, Damian Marley, Super Cat, Buju Banton, Agent Sasco, Shabba Ranks, Anthony B, Maxi Priest, Jah Cure, Chronixx, and so many more have been on the main stage.
In addition to the mainstage, there are other stages with specific genres. In the Bounce Dancehall, you’ll see big and small toasters at work on their turntables.
If you prefer to crack a deep bass note you can do so in the 18 inch Corner. In a sublime location among the trees gather the pounding sound systems. This is an absolute must for Reggae Geel.
What more could a person want? Maybe a dash of ska? Tallawah is the place to go for that.
Reggae Geel actually starts already on Thursday with a “camping pre-party”. In 2019, 2,700 campers attended that first edition of the pre-party.
Want to be there at the campsite without stress and hassle? Then book yourself a pre-erected FestiTent or Festipi.
You can only reserve a place on the campsite with a FestiTent or Festipi. We make sure your tent is ready for you on the campsite of Reggae Geel. The only thing you need to bring is your own fun kit and Jamaica flag!

Is your spam filter stronger than our vouchers? No problem, you can download your voucher straight from the FestiTent Guest Center.
A few days before you travel to the festival, you will receive an email from us with additional information about the location and check-in.
After entering the campsite, proceed to the FestiTent reception. Our hosts will be waiting for you and guide you to your FestiTent. You can check in by handing in your voucher. If you have lost your voucher (your dog ate it, your printer ran out of ink just when you tried to print it or your phone ran out of power) we will find your name in our check-in system. No worries! During the check-in we will check if your FestiTent is damage free and fill in a check-in form together.
Come over to the FestiTent reception when you want to check out. We will check together if your FestiTent was not damaged during the weekend. If everything is ok, your deposit will be refunded the day after. From then it’s out of our hands. Depending on your payment method it can take several weeks before you will see it appear on your account.
