Reggae stalwart Max Romeo (with live band) will co-headline with TSS with his foot-stomping sounds, while the inimitable Suggs (of Madness fame) will hit the decks with his very own DJ set. TSS will bring the love and bass courtesy of selecta Daddy Ad alongside vocalists Supa4 Creation, Jah Buck and Chucky Bantan.

This is an all ages event. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult aged 18+.
Trojan Sound System are known for creating music that transcends age, race and political barriers and satisfies the purest of vinyl collectors whilst also introducing new generations to the roots of Jamaican music and bass culture. They are the original crew that broke reggae music and culture back into contemporary clubs and festivals, and having reformed in 2004, they’ve been mixing styles and flavours from the past 50 years in clubs, festivals and headline gigs all over the world.
Max Romeo started his career in the 1960s when his debut song “Wet Dream” made the UK singles top 10 chart but was later banned by the BBC for its explicit lyrics. After taking an oath to Rastafarianism, he embarked on a more conscious route in music resulting in his seminal album “War Inna Babylon” - credited as one of the most successful reggae albums of all time. His track “I Chase The Devil” remains one of the most sampled reggae tracks of all time and features in “Lucifer” by Jay Z and “Out of Space” by The Prodigy.
Suggs needs little introduction to music lovers – Madness’ front man, the man behind those Baggy Trousers, Suggs has been singing and spinning music for 40 years and won’t be slowing down anytime soon. The sultan of ska will be performing a DJ set that is sure to get the crowds skanking.
