I am proud to announce that BBC Radio 1 will now be broadcasting my 1Xtra Reggae show every Saturday night/Sunday between 4am and 6am (late night blues style); listen worldwide via the BBC Radio iPlayer.
The first episode airs on Monday 7th August at 11pm on BBC Radio 2, or can be listened to any time on the BBC website by clicking here!
So summer is really here at last and I am in full festival mode in the UK and across Europe so please have a look at my Gig Guide to see where I’m playing. There are some extra special events that I’m really looking forward to, such as Parklife in Manchester and Sommerset House in London both with Damian Marley; also the Reggae festivals in France (Reggae Sun Ska Bordeaux) and Reggae Jam in Germany when I will clash with King Jammy. And for the nutty bass-driven massive there’s Hideout Festival and Outlook Festival in Croatia, not forgetting the last ever Secret Garden Festival (boo), and near the end of the summer it’s Ram Jam at Madness House of Common and Bestival down in Dorset.
I will be back on BBC Radio 2 from Monday 7th August for a six week summer season at 11pm. And of course I am still keeping you up to date with the best in new Reggae music from around the world every Sunday evening from 7 till 9pm on BBC Radio 1Xtra.
For all thats hot take a gander at the Hot Hits Chart and remember too have fun this summer… yippee.
I’ll also be doing 4 selected Book Launch and Q&A events around the UK. I’ll be in conversation about the book and my life in Reggae, before I take to the decks and play exclusive dubplate sets. I’ll be joined by some extra special guests as well and you can get your hands on a signed copy of the book! All details and ticket links below.
