The Beat / RIDDIM Festival Launch – Twisted Pepper, Dublin

RIDDIM (ROOTS INCORPORATING DRUMS DANCE IMAGINATION & MUSIC) is a brand new festival dedicated to hosting all things rootical in their elements through visual and musical expression.

The aim of the festival over the next 12 months is to bring you a fusion of musical styles and genres including Reggae/ Ska/ Dub/ Hip-Hop/ breakbeat/ Jazz/ Funk/ Soul/ Roots/ Folk/ Electronic Dub/ Dubstep and Drum n’bass which through musical progression have already been fused together in so many variations worldwide. This has created somewhat of a tree with many branches combining cultures, language, expression, art, music and ideals for a better world. THIS IS RIDDIM!!! This event will be the first of a number of RIDDIM FEST fundraisers for a planned open air festival event in 2012.

The festival is officially launching in Twisted Pepper venue, Middle Abbey street, Dublin on Saturday 9th of April where the whole venue shall be overrun with rootical vibrations and rastafarian variations. If that’s not enough to blow your mind and you fancy the full on festival experience, get yourself down to the bassment where Pogo/ Bodytonic music shall be keepin’ those heads ringin’…
