Another well-known youth event, the Festival of reggae, is held in Uppsala too. It is the biggest event of its kind in Scandinavia. The very first music festival was held in summer of 2001. Initially, a few hundred people were taking part, but by 2005 the number of regular guests of the festival has increased to 10,000. The festival attracts not only fans of the musical tradition, but music fans from all around the world.
The festival takes place in summer, so a large part of the concerts and entertainment events are held in the open air, which makes the holiday even more charming. The lively and beautiful university city of Uppsala has a very good-natured and friendly atmosphere. Foreign tourists will feel themselves as welcome guests at the every festival. Local residents are very proud of their culture and are happy to show it to neighbors from other states.
