After 2 years off because of Covid19 and the lockdown, Reggae on the Nile Fest is back on a new date at the same venue. The break-off was used to assess and re-imagine the festival and determine what direction was best for its longevity.

On 4th & 5th Nov 2022, Humble Management ltd and Nile Vybz Entertainment present RON FEST 2022 at Nile Nest Jinja.

We promise a better festival and that is what we will be delivering, says the organizers.

A Two-Day Event Line Up of Workshops and Culture Seminars, Themed Rafting and Tubing, Camping, Art Exhibition, Food Village, and all this while being entertained by cool reggae vibes.

Reggae on the Nile harmonizes three critical aspects of reggae entertainment; Music and culture, Art, and Tourism. Music and culture: Uganda has grown musically across genres and most notably reggae, this is an attraction that needs to be celebrated and shared with the world. This event is built to be a platform from which to boost the musical heritage of the country by showcasing the best reggae acts Uganda has to offer on a stage with the rest of the region’s best.

Art: Music and Art go hand in hand, and thus the organizers are adopting a mode that will enable artists, painters, and fashion designers to showcase at the event and thus add spice and color to our show.

Tourism: Jinja is one of Uganda’s most iconic and beautiful towns, attracting over 200,000 local and international tourists. Humble Management and Vybz Entertainment are building Reggae on the Nile to be one of the key attractions to Jinja annually, providing a very fun and authentic reason to travel to Uganda and Jinja particularly at the banks of the River Nile for this reggae experience.
