Britain’s Got Reggae is a competition that promotes the wealth of reggae talent the UK has to offer. We have some fantastic unearthed grass-roots talent in the UK that are unrecognized because they have not been given the opportunities, nor the platforms to showcase their talent.

Starting off as a one off event that happened on the 29th January 2015 at the multiple award winning live music venue, Hootananny in Brixton. We were given the opportunity to hold an event and came up with the name Britain’s Got Reggae.

We were inundated with emails from artists wanting to be featured on the event. Not coming from London and running events in the Midlands since 2013 meant that we already had knowledge of reggae artists nationally. Cecil Reuben the manager of the night, was very impressed with our professional delivery and the diverse selection of artists that were presented. He then offered BGR seven more dates throughout 2015 where we then came up with the concept of the competition and the rest is history.

We would like to see reggae return to the forefront of pop culture on mainstream TV and radio. This well needed platform is for both new and experienced artsits that are making music but feel they are not reaching a wider audience. Reggae music was thriving in the 70s, 80s & 90s, however the emergence of the internet came along and had a massive impact on the industry, which may not have been anticipated.

Another determining factor of the UK reggae decline was the lack of acquired knowledge of the music business, therefore leaving the emerging younger generations with an uphill task of re-positioning reggae music, back to the forefront of pop culture and mainstream TV and radio.
