The all day event will take place Bank Holiday Sunday Oct 27th and run from 4pm till 3am and will incorporate the cream of Dublin's live acts, Sound system's, Club night's and Selecta's with Caribbean foods, Jamaican cinema, Ireland's only dedicated Reggae store (inDub records) selling vinyls, cd's, merchandise and a total overhaul of the Twisted Pepper by the Trenchtown-Ireieland Crew (Electric Picnic).
Extra Soundsystems will be in place powering the bar area where DJ's will spin tunes all day long while rum flows from the in house Rum-Bar and specialised food vendors will be on hand to serve the traditional Jamaican BBQ snacks.
Whether you'd like to catch a classic Jamaican cult movie in our cinema room, Sip from a quality rum selection, Buy some vinyl/cd's, get educated on the history of the music from a true veteran of world DJing, Soundclash and Radio Broadcasting or simply have a dance to the sounds of city's Reggae community, its all here on the 27th of October.
