Foundation Reggae Festival

Foundation Reggae Festival - Since the year 2001 in which the first edition has been held, there have been numerous bands that have passed on its stage.

In its first 4 years focused on recognized Galician and national bands (Desakato Dada, Potato, Loud & Lone, Berrogüetto, or Luar Na Lubre), and bands that were starting but today 7 years later are internationally recognized formations (Morodo, Alamedasouluna , Deus ketecrew, Batuko TabamKa, Emeterians, Bush Doctors, etc).

For the last 8 years a CGR Galician-level competition has also been held to accommodate the emerging bands, from which bands that nowadays are representative of the music made within the Galician community have come out: Kogito, Som do Galpom , Skarallaos, GanjahJR Family, Zamaramandi.

This contest is a direct qualifier for the Reggae Contest Spain framed within the European Reggae Contest ERC, that since 2007, and as a consequence of the contacts maintained with other organizers of festivals throughout Europe, we have managed to reach an agreement for the creation of this "European Reggae Contest", whose purpose resides in the presentation to the public of the continent of new emerging bands in the European reggae music scene.

The conditions of the mentioned agreement can be known through our website www.reggaecontest.eu.

In these 12 years of the Foundation's life great international stars were in the posters of their editions like Jamaicans: Beres Hammond, Toots & Maytals, Tosh meets Marley, Don Carlos, Everton Blender, Tosh 1, Africans: Daara J, Toure Kunda , the Europeans: Aswad, Elijah or Macka B, Junior Shaka, Dub to La Pub, the Portuguese: Kumpania Algazarra, Terrakota, Stepacide, the Argentines: Holy Piby, Fidel Nadal, the Brazilians Levitas, or Nou Vin Lakay of Venezuela among others .

Not only music but workshops, activities, games, market, good atmosphere and collaborations and activities of NGOs, make families and groups of people of all ages move to the festival.
