This event will run from 8pm – 11:30pm due to live music laws and will be followed by an afterparty until 3am showcasing the best local Dj’s & brands playing tight selections of Reggae, Dub, Soundsyetm Culture & Jungle.

** Macka B Biography **

Macka B’s words, sound and lyrical power were forged in UK sound system culture. Inspired by H.I.M. Ras Tafari and pioneer DJ’s such URoy, IRoy & Big Youth Macka developed a gift for lyrical flow which caught the ears of Fashion records who bought him to London to record his first record ‘Bible Reader’

A link up with Mad Professor led him to a string of hit albums and singles for the Ariwa Sounds label and an extensive tour schedule increasing Macka’s international profile while delivering a crossover chart in Hawaii with ‘Bob’.

Over the years Macka has collaborated with a veritable who’s who of talent including Horace Andy, Freddie Mcgregor, Steel Pulse, Luciano and Gregory Isaccs while sharing the stage with a whole heap of legendary reggae icons.
