The City Splash mission is to celebrate the impact and importance of reggae music on British culture, birthing everything from Ska, Rocksteady, Dub, Roots, Dancehall, Lovers Rock to its UK ancestors of UK Reggae, Jungle, Hip Hop, Garage, Grime and Drum and Bass; the influence of Reggae has been a constant in the UK for 50 years. Not only has it brought us the riddims and the lifestyle influence, but it’s a genre that expresses and addresses social issues and their solutions through the music’s messages.
We will be hosting London’s finest Carribean street food vendors in collaboration with London Jerk Fest; sampling favourite delights from jerk chicken to vegan ital stew, fried plantains and much much more. For those of you looking for a more liquid lunch, expect an unparalleled rum vendor selection and locally brewed craft beers, stouts and spirits to add a little fyah to the day.
Reggae’s influence on youth culture in London runs deep, the genre’s heartbeat rhythm and lyrics about love, redemption and natural living deeply affect fashions, lifestyles, friendships and unify strangers internationally. We believe such an important genre musically and socially deserves a prominent place on the annual live music calendar in London and we’re hyped to be bringing it to South London this September.
The festival is located in the beautiful Beckenham Place Park near to Crystal Palace and is home to ancient woodland and rolling grassy hills. With FOUR music stages dedicated to the biggest of reggae acts, you can happily bop around between the unique production sites to catch your favorites.
