The World Reggae Contest, launched in 2015, has become one of the major promotional platforms for global reggae artists. Thanks to the Ostróda competition many interesting, unknown bands performed in Poland, and the winners of the previous editions, Chainska Brassika and The Dubbeez, recorded in Jamaica with the acclaimed local producers Sam Clayton and Stephen Stewart.
Soon the first band will release their Jamaican session and the other is going to publish a documentary showing them recording an album in Jamaica.
Unfortunately, due to the lack of a sponsor whose support would guarantee the continuation of the competition on the current level, this year we are taking a break, which will be filled with interesting shows on the Ostroda Reggae Festival Red Stage.
In the meantime, we will do our best to find the right partners and return to the idea that worked well in the past year and encouraged hundreds of bands from all over the world to participate in the competition. Keep the fingers crossed!
