Reggae Month In Full Swing

Written by on February 27, 2022

Reggae Month is celebrated in February. Reggae Month is a month-long celebration of reggae music that takes place primarily in and around Kingston. You may go to reggae gigs in and around Kingston, as well as attend lectures, documentaries, find new talent, enjoy established talent, party at any of Kingston’s weekly events, and attend lectures.

In 2008, the Jamaican government declared February to be reggae month. Both Bob Marley and Dennis Brown were born in February, which is Black History Month. JaRIA, the Jamaican Recording Industry Organisation, the Ministry of Tourism, and the Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment, and Sport are all involved in organizing Reggae Month.

Reggae month mostly features a series of recurring events, such as:

  • JaRIA Open University – a series of public discussions on all things reggae
  • JaRIA Live – a weekly series presenting local renown and upcoming talents
  • Reggae Wednesdays – a series of live concerts charting the evolution of reggae
  • Vinyl thursdays – King Harar Sound with Exile the Brave and Little Briggy
  • Reggae Mixer – weekly friday after-work jams

The JaRIA events are fantastic, with well-known reggae acts performing every Wednesday, vinyl-only Thursdays, and special editions of popular Kingston weekly parties like Kingston Dub Club and Weddy Weddy Wednesdays.
