SATURDAY 3RD MAY
Rise up and unite, people, the REVOLUTION IS COMING!!!
Join Passing Clouds and Captain SKA for a night of protest and unity, all brought together with the very best revolutionary music in town!
With the coalition government performing a rampant assault on the most vulnerable people in our communities, all the while sucking on caviar and embezzling millions for their second homes, not to mention waging wars that profit only themselves, we say enough is enough!
Come and show the men-in-suits that we will NOT be silenced, we will NOT sit quietly, we WILL make a stand, and we WILL be heard!
Come dressed as your favourite political hero OR your most reviled political villain, and BRING A PROTEST BANNER!! We want a room full of up-risers, radicals, and rebels. Captain SKA himself will be choosing his favourite banner - the very best political statement wins a very special Insurgent Cocktail!

Captain SKA burst onto the UK scene in October 2010, with their debut single ‘Liar Liar’ which reached no. 1 in the UK Reggae charts, and was named by the TUC as ‘the anthem of the anti-cuts movement’.
Since then they have released five more singles to critical acclaim, and performed sell-out shows across the UK.
7-piece reggae band
One of the only roots reggae bands in the world performing a fully organic, fully live dub reggae show.
After proving themselves to be more than worthy of playing on some of the biggest stages in the European reggae scene, the band are about as ripe and ready as they have ever been to hit the rest of the world with their vibrant, live and organic dub show. This is true roots rockers music, harking straight back to the heart of 1970's Kingston Jamaica..... with a fresh UK edge.
Vibe Machine have been described as, "...Great fun,...". “...ambitiously original...” and like “Ian Dury bumping into Gil Scott Heron in 21st century London. The pair of them moving to LA to be produced by Steely Dan and picking up a Memphis horn section on the way."
