To crown the alliance, what better endorsement than the original Rebel Dread, Don Letts?
The man credited for bridging punk and reggae music through his DJ sets will offer up a 90-minute retrospective of roots reggae and dub music, powered by King Tubby’s HiFi. Renowned for his literature, poetry, film directing and for being an articulate social commentator, Letts is a man who has been influenced as much by the people around him, be them black or white, as he was by the music and the social events compelling the music that surrounded him. This has made him the London icon that he is today. Trinity seek to bless up the crowd with a visit from the Don.

David Boomah [Live PA]
Junglist all-star, Drum n Bass number 1s over and over again – builder of the scene and without a doubt, part of Jungle history. Having released on Ebony, Digital Soundboy, Ganja, Pure Vibes and Congo Natty, his credentials remain as strong as ever. Boomah glides as easily over a Jungle tune as he does a Reggae riddim or Hip Hop beat, showcasing tracks from his forthcoming album.
Code:breaker 4.1 That’s one Junglist, one mic, one mixer and one music, cut for musical oneness. He’s like a preacher at the pulpit, spreading his controlled word through his lyrics, setting up the bass, tweaking the mids and tops to finely tune for you the congregation. He has had releases for Congo Natty, Dread, Formation and Buttercuts records, touring the UK and Europe extensively and being at the top of his game.

Michael Groce. Poet. Londoner. Intrinsic part of Brixton’s history. Mr Groce demonstrates the power of the spoken word: uncovering and delving deep his experience as a formentor of societal change. On this night, he will perform a collection of his works that have seen him win accolades such as the Cheltenham festival and which have had extensive TV and Radio airplay. He is an erstwhile badman, utterly reformed character, community worker, motivating and inspiring youths about the paths life has to offer, encouraging and helping; building with those around him.
The Dubstep producer and DJ is a resident for the Vagabondz crew, who put on some of the biggest parties that span Brighton, London, Leeds and Outlook Croatia. He has been grafting and building his name with fire selection and tight mixes. Currently working with the Trinity Camp on the new Congo Natty album, he is fresh from a very strong set on GetDarkerTV and hotly anticipated by those in the know at the Outlook festival.
Dubstep cut from a different cloth, on some pure meditation, sub driven and firmly rooted in Reggae music, journey-man vibe. First and foremost an underground DJ, Crises can be found transmitting over the Rinse FM airwaves, pushing the sounds that he holds close to his heart through his Mindstep promotion engine.
