Join us for a night of Dub and Roots as Coventry Sound Systems take over the The Box with the deep bass and conscious lyrics that are trademarks of this form of Reggae. Be prepared to let the music move you.

Featuring Irie B & Scooby, Messenger Sound, Sisters in Dub, Black Crusader and I&I Presents Count C.

Dub was first pioneered by Reggae producers such as King Tubby, Lee Scratch Perry and Mad Professor, and has informed many genres of music such as drum and bass, jungle, trip hop, techno, dance and even pop. Whereas Roots Reggae was inspired by Rastafarianism with more spiritual and political themes. Notable Roots artists such as The Abyssinians, Bob Marley and Burning Spear helped take Reggae music to the world.

This event is strictly for 18+
