R-R-R-Reggae time again Massive!
A big treat coming to you this "skank-holiday Sunday," with the Rub-A-Dublin reggae festival, a day long event at Dublin's Twisted Pepper.
Appearing on our calenders for the first time this year, the Rub-A-Dublin bash is a collaboration between reggae label Irish Moss Records, MUD, and Beatyard, bringing together some of Dublin's finest artists and crews to showcase the city's home grown vibe, along with a very special appearance by the Dubplate King, David "Ram Jam" Rodigan.
The Twisted Pepper will be getting a dressing up from Trenchtown's creative team, setting up the vibe that will see the venue transformed for the day to include features like the underground Jamaican cinema, Ram's Record Box (a pop up version of record & reggae shop In-Dub) and three areas of music.
We at Irie Ireland will curate the bar area (with DJ sets from Lex Woo, Crazy D, Worries Outernational, D-Fens and more), while right up top, T.P. regulars Junior Spesh will be rocking it out all day and playing host to local legends Firehouse Skank.
In the live room you can catch performances from Jigzsaw (Irish Alliance), Dub Investigation, Songs Of Freedom (A Tribute To Bob Marley & The Wailers), and an EXTRA-SPECIAL live show from Dirty Dubsters! This is where you'll also catch star turn Sir David Rodigan as he brings his "History Of Reggae" to Dublin, a not-to-be-missed experience.
There'll be Caribbean food and special cocktails to sustain you through this memorable day, so don't be afraid to get down early and catch a movie before the madness kicks in.
Tickets for the day will set you back €12/€15 and are available via the Bodytonic Website.
Don't forget, this event is strictly 18 & Over...
