Jamaica 50 Celebrated By French Reggae Fest

French Reggae FestThe 21st Garance Reggae Festival kicks off tomorrow with four days of must-have reggae vibes at the Arthur Rimbaud Park at Bagnols-sur-Ceze.

The Garance Reggae Festival celebrates the 50th anniversary of Jamaican independence and pays tribute to what a release from the organisers described as a 'remarkable island whose influence has reached the four corners of the globe'.

Following a record attendance last year (48,000 tickets sold), this year's Garance Reggae Festival has adapted to accommodate its ever-growing public, offering even safer and more reliable facilities.

The festival has become the not-to-be-missed event for reggae and dub aficionados throughout Europe. As always, the festival will showcase the very best in reggae legends, revelations and surprises.
