2nd Annual Ottawa Reggae Festival

Canada’s capital city, Ottawa, takes on a Red Yellow and Green transformation with the staging of the 2nd annual Ottawa Reggae Festival! Live from Le Breton Flats located in Downtown Ottawa, and beside Canada’s War Museum, the festival will span 3 days and will host more than 30 performers from Canada, Jamaica, Trinidad, Mexico and the US.
The festival’s headliner, Shaggy, said “it’s been a few years since I’ve been to Canada. I’m really looking forward to performing for my Canadian fans!” Featuring artists Tanya Stephens, Pressure, Baby Cham, and Shurwayne Winchester, all artists have expressed that they are looking forward to entertaining Canada’s large Reggae, Dancehall and Soca community.
“There’s a little something for everyone,” said Festival President Benjamin Williams, “and front stage accommodations in the Heineken VIP Lounge for patrons with disabilities shows that we are looking forward to seeing everybody!”
In keeping with their commitment to fostering and promoting Canadian talent, the festival also features award winning Ras Lee & Roots from Ottawa, Auresia from Montreal and Juno Award winner Humble from Toronto, among others.
