Get Ready For City Splash 2023 | Celebrating Caribbean and African Culture
One-day Reggae, Dancehall and Afrobeats celebration City Splash finalises an epic line-up for Brockwell Park on bank holiday Monday, May 29th 2023. These latest acts include Max Romeo on his last ever UK Tour, plus the fast-rising one to watch that is Uncle Waffles, Donae’o, Lutan Fyah, Jah Youth, Juls and Twinkle Brothers. These come on top of the likes of Chronixx, Koffee, Shenseea, Skillibeng, Gyakie, Stylo G, Jah9 and Ayra Starr who along with tens more will play across seven special stages.
Chief amongst these latest names is Max Romeo who stops by on his last-ever UK Tour. He is a legendary Jamaican reggae and roots reggae recording artist who has achieved chart success at home and in the UK. He saw fame with his band the Emotions and is best known for his tune ‘Wet Dreams’ which pioneered an all-new style of reggae. Next to him is amapiano queen Uncle Waffles who has been picked out as a star to watch this year and turned in a superb Boiler Room performance that got everyone talking while also bringing all freshest sounds of this fast-rising genre. Add in Giggs and Dizze Rascal collaborator Donae’o, international reggae mogul Lutan Fyah brings his trademark heat, pioneering Afrobeat producer Juls who is taking the genre into the future and headlining an upcoming VICE party at Fabric, plus Jah Youth and enduring 80s reggae band Twinkle Brothers and you have all bases covered in style.
As well as the irresistible and authentic musical line-up at City Splash, you can look forward to diving into offerings from several black-owned food and drinks outlets such as Blk Eats LDN as well as exploring some great creative markets. There will be plenty to get the brain going too with talks, panels and workshops by charity partners, site art to add extra colour and culture to the day and a comprehensive London Brewers Market featuring breweries from across the city, but focussing on the South.
All this is part of a celebration of Caribbean and African culture like no other in the heart of Brockwell Park, a picture perfect British green space with grounds, gardens and ponds to explore, on what should be a bright spring day.
