Reggae On The Nile: International Art, Music Festival Goes To Jinja


There have been a variety of shows happening in Uganda, with every event organizer naming theirs international, probably to spice its name or relate them with the World’s biggest and most recognized shows.

We have seen Ugandans going from party to party as if they were free entry events, even if they were so, don’t they get tired or rather the best question should be, ‘don’t they have other work assignments to attend to?’ well, we are yet to find answers to those questions.

Talking of parties, just as we thought they were done and no more this year after a series of events including Roast and Rhyme, the famous Blankets and Wine, Shorts Na Lessu, East Meets West, Bell All-star tour concert and the recent one being Nyege Nyege Festival, here comes yet another ‘Reggae On The Nile.’

This time, you don’t have to have doubts as to who named it an international, best or whatever you may call it, the event is on the list as one of the world’s internationally recognized events that celebrate reggae in the world.

You may have probably known of some of the finest reggae shows happening in the World including Jamaica’s One Love Peace Concert, Rebel Salute’ concert, Reggae Sumfest, USA’s Island Reggae Festival in San Jose, California, South Africa’s Reggae Ark Festival in Mamelodi, Pretoria and the annual Gambia Cultural Reggae Festival in Gambia among others, but the fact is that Uganda is well represented.

Partiers will have yet another way to end the Year on the shores of River Nile come November 21, 22 and 23 at Nile Nest in Jinja.

It is not proper to say it will be such a cool way to end the Year, no, not at all as the festival will blow the revelers’ minds with not just the reggae genre but as well as dub, hip hop, ska, Jazz and reggae fusion among others.


The three day Humble Management event is focused on giving people platform to lift up their consciousness as well as preaching a message of ‘living together in harmony’ no matter the age, race and gender.

Reggae on the Nile Festival will be celebrating Reggae music, art ,culture and tourism, while attracting mainly reggae music lovers not only in Uganda, but as well as from Kenya, Ghana, Rwanda, USA, Germany, France and Jamaica among others.

The Pilsner lager Festival will be running under three themes with each day signifying a different theme; Thursday will be representing ‘African Night,’ ‘Friday Rub Dub Night’ and wrapping it up on Saturday with ‘International Night.’

There will also be exciting art exhibitions, tubing on the Nile, camping, sailing on the Nile, village walks and camp fires among others.

Speaking to Chimpreports, some of the 3rd edition attendees said that, “It was one of the best moments they could hardly miss.

Another revealed that his girlfriend’s feet were tired as she just had to crawl to breakfast the next morning having enjoyed and had the best moments during the opening night.

With the top notch reggae acts from all over the World performing, the 4th edition of Reggae on the Nile will be the most memorable experience that will get Reggae lovers gratified.
