Music all day across 4 Rooms, 3 Floors, Cinema, Record Store, Caribbean BBQ & You!
12 Months after the inaugural Bank holiday Sunday Reggae Festival, RUB-A-DUBLIN is back with a boom in Round 3.
Since hosting headline acts SIR DAVID RODIAN, GENERAL LEVY, TROJAN SOUND SYSTEM and CAPITOL 1212 to name but a few of the heavyweight performers who brought the fyah to Dublin’s Twisted Pepper, the good word has spread among Rub-A-Dubliners.
Those present in Trenchtown, Electric Picnic this year will have experienced the wealth of national talent to be heard on Ireland’s ever growing reggae scene. With that in mind & in celebration of our home grown artists, we present an almost all Irish line up.
Ireland’s own Reggae Troubadour CIAN FINN will be joined by special guest, Poland’s prodigal son RADIKAL GURU. Having collaborated on various past projects they bring a unique Dub Set. Expect positive vibes and plenty of energy from the duo, billed to headline the live room.
Cork’s Rasta Rebels REVELATION SOUND SYSTEM will be powering the Live Room with their custom built and finely tuned speaker stack. Festival goers will have no doubt felt the bass this summer in Trenchtown’s Inna Da Woods Arena where the crew welcomed many guest performers and threw an unforgettable reggae party.
