The event will incorporate installations of artwork on walls, canvases and boards and once completed will provide the setting for the afterparty. All this will be set against a backdrop of a reggae, ska, dub and hip hop beat during the day and moving onto the live acts and a tougher sound later for the afterparty with more Hip hop, Drum and Bass and Breaks. Festival favourites Chai Wallah’s will provide refreshments in the form of spiked smoothies and jumpin’ juices throughout the event. With support and sponsorship from Red Bull, Carhartt and Casio providing freebies, drinks, sounds systems and more.
