The Black Music Weekender
Across 4 arena's It pays homage to a broad base of genres that fall under the umbrella of Black Music.
Particular focus is on elements that maybe do not get the attention that they deserve.
First up is the Carnival favourite Soca.
After Reggae Soca is the biggest music scene in the Caribbean & is characterised by bright colours, pulsating rhythms, happy people & gyrating hips.
The biggest names on the scene have been assembled for this one.
It will be loud, colourful & energetic.
Next up is the fastest growing genre on the dj decks, Afrobeats, a sound emergent from the streets of the Mother continent Africa, an exciting blend of Naija beats, house, juju, dancehall & hiplife.
Characterised by artistes such as Burna Boy, Whizkid, Davido, D,banji & Mr Eazi this music is featured heavily in all major playlists and popular artistes such as Beyonce & Drake have all collaborated & borrowed heavily from this scene.
This arena will be fusing Jamaican Dancehall & afro beats so get prepared for an electro charged sexy atmosphere
The next arena features an era that blended the worlds of hip hop soul & gospel vocals.
For the decade now affectionately called the noughties, the sounds of artistes such as Mary J Blige, Keith Sweat, Jodeci, Lauryn Hill, Biggie Smalls, Tupac Shakur and Missy Elliott to name a few, ruled the airwaves and gave us a host of anthems that still get played regularly today.
Expect to hear lots of backing singing in this area.
The final arena comes to life when the lights are low or when the Sun starts to peep its head.
Rare Groove, Slow Jamz, Revival music & Lovers Rock.
Those that know, know!
An area where the more experienced raver can enjoy the trip down memory lane to the early morning cock crow.
The DJs on display tell you all you need to know.
