28 June 2019 - The only festival of reggae music genre in Montenegro, the Montenegro Sun Reggae Festival, takes place from June 28 to June 30 at the Slovenska beach (at the Rondo swimming pool) in Budva.
Montenegro Sun Reggae Festival annually brings together the best performers of reggae music and popular reggae bands from all over Montenegro, as well as from many other countries of the world, on one stage.
This year's festival was opened on June 28 at 6 pm by the cult reggae band from Serbia - Del Arno Band. According to the organisers, many famous musicians will perform within this year’s festival program, such as Selektuh Dedduh, Horn Smancoyote, DJ Daibi, DJ Bratski Beatz&Rhymes, Natty Fiyah SS and many others. The Slovenian artist Tadiman will have the honour to close the Festival, said for RTV Budva Vinko Mihajlović, the organiser of the festival.
"In addition to the concerts, this year we have also prepared two workshops, one dedicated to drummers from Jamaica, and the other is the Dancehall workshop. Also, during the festival, fans of the reggae sound can expect numerous music surprises, which will mark the splendid start of the summer," Mihajlović stressed.
“Our wish when we organised the festival for the first time was to bring the audience closer to the music, and to bring the music closed to the audience. I hope that we managed to fulfil this goal. Our plans to mark our festivals on world maps have been achieved at the very beginning, so we are recognized in various parts of the world,” stated the organiser.
This year, the Montenegro Sun Reggae Festival is being organized for the first time at the Tourist settlement Slovenska plaža in cooperation with Hotel Group Budvanska rivijera, with the support of the Budva Municipality and the Tourist Organization of Budva.
As announced by the organisers, the cost of a three-day set of tickets for the festival is 20 euros. The price includes all concerts and seminars. Tickets cannot be refunded.
The festival ends on June 30 at 11:30 pm.
