Reggae Rotterdam is the largest open-air reggae music festival in the Netherlands. The event draws fans from all across Europe and the best reggae and dancehall artists from all over the world.

Reggae Rotterdam history

The first edition of the Rotterdam Reggae festival was held in 2017 at Het Park near Euromast. Tickets were sold out quickly as the event attracted over 15,000 reggae fans from all over the country as well as abroad. In 2018, the Reggae Rotterdam festival moved to a new and larger location at Kralingse Bos in an effort to better accommodate the thousands of fans.

There is also a mega food court with an extra amount of food trucks and dishes from all over the world. Like the previous edition, there is also a large playground with inflatables, swings, a slide and a swimming pool for the little reggae enthusiasts among us. Children up to and including 10 years of age still have free admission under supervision!
