Reggae Geel 2017 – Complete Line Up!
Reggae Geel 2017 complete line-up
The addition of some big names complete the 39th line-up of Reggae Geel. Black Uhuru, Maxi Priest and American The Voice winner Tessanne Chin and many others will be present on the Main stage on August 4th and 5th, 2017.
As one of the oldest reggae festivals in Europe, Reggae Geel have come up with a most impressive line-up. On the main stage big names such as Original Black Uhuru: Michael Rose & Duckie Simpson, Maxi Priest & Glen Washington will be joining the earlier announced big names like Jah Cure, Steel Pulse and Chronixx.
The four other stages will be equally flooded with talent such as Ricky Trooper, Aidonia, Tanto Blacks in the Bounce Dancehall. The Yard will be welcoming British muslim hip-hop duo Poetic Pilgrimage and the Skaville tent will host local heroes like Sugar Charly and the Jamaica Jazz Orchestra. Finally, the 18 Inch Corner will be filled with the sound systems of Jah Youth and Young Warrior, amongst others.
Reggae Geel bets on young talent. On the line-up young stars Runkus and Royal Blu, but also Iba Mahr and Tanto Blacks (the new dancehall sensation), all straight from Jamaica. With Tessanne Chin the organisers have managed to bring a true superstar to Geel. This talented singer won The voice in the US and has been invited to perform at the White House. Up and coming band Earthkry will be present too!
Like every year Reggae Geel pays strong attention to qualitative entertainments for young and old. The mobile turntables of Bangarang Soundsystem and Serendipity Soundsystem will be crossing the festival grounds to spread rastaman vibrations everywhere. The motley crew of the Fanfakids (ages 7 to 15) will be bringing disarming energy with their own drum band. And the CirQ collective will be bringing several hilarious yet educational acts. Have a pint in the Grand Café – exactly one meter square-, pick a reggae song in the Human Jukebox and have your children simmer to a boil in the Jacuzzi. In the Refu salon you can have your hair cut by top hairdressers from Palestine and Iraq, and in the Kiddie Calais Camp your kids will build an encampment with refugees.
