HUGE Jah Soundsystem TMRW (Thurs) at ULU. Come early to get your £3 tickets before doors open.

**come early to get your advance tickets of £3 before doors open** 

To coincide with the end of term and help you into the Easter Break with a hangover so bad you go colourblind, ULU and Love Music Hate Racism are putting on a night of global sounds, huge basslines and great vibes to bring people together and raise money for a fantastic cause.

Drinks are student prices with deals available, and tickets are £3 in advance (available from Sabbs office at ULU) and £5 on the door. Every penny of the profit we make is going straight to Love Music Hate Racism.


This is going to be pretty special. IOJ are a custom built reggae soundsystem that will be setting up in the venue, and providing special guests and huge tunes into the night. Look out for earlier sets from Chris Gee (Unwanted) and Roots Brothers. Reggae music played through a CHEST SHATTERING reggae soundsystem is how you’re supposed to hear it.


Based in London and led by Voodoo King Nickens Nkoso, Kasaï Masaï brings us the Traditional Sound of the most remote equatorial villages with a Urban Twist. The band is a 5 piece outfit, consisting of d’jembe, guitar, saxophone, bass and drum. To add that extra exotic touch they are also joined occasionally by a balafon player, a MC and one or two female dancers!

“Both in their teens, working independently over the past few months they have raked in over one hundred thousand views on their youtube videos and created a growing buzz around their name. Two Microphones, Two voices. A Million Sounds. Beatbox and Rap. Two of the strongest Hip Hop elements combine on stage to create an awe inspiring live set.”

“The Vibe_A_Deliks formed as a band in 2009. They have been playing around London at many of the best gigs that the circuit has to offer. The Band consists of 5 members…and all they want to do is make good music.”

Also keep a look out for Love Music Hate Racism stalls around the venue, here’s a bit more about them.

Love Music Hate Racism (LMHR) was set up in 2002 in response to rising levels of racism and electoral successes for the Nazi British National Party (BNP). They use the energy of our music scene to celebrate diversity and involve people in anti-racist and anti-fascist activity as well as to urge people to vote against fascist candidates in elections. LMHR has helped to mobilise against further BNP election victories, in the tradition of the Rock Against Racism
