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.
The event usually features different stages, with major national and international artists. There's a mainstage, a dancehall stage and a dub stage. There is also a mega food court with an extra amount of food trucks and dishes from all over the world. In previous editions, there has also been a large playground with inflatables, swings, a slide and a swimming pool for the little reggae enthusiasts among us.
