Belgian Dub Community Festival is a Brussels based fest fully dedicated to the Soundsystem culture!
Boasting 4 years of experience in the organization of Dub events at Atelier 210 and other venues/events, the Belgian Dub Community team has put on a big spread to offer fans an indoor two-day festival in the heart of the capital.
The program will feature a first evening dedicated to producers which will all their best work on the infamous Roots Corner wall.
Day two will be all about the soundmen with two heavyweights from the international scene: Masego Soundsystem (NL) and Agobun Soundsystem (FR). The Roots Corner Soundsystem will obviously complete that infernal trio whose soundsystems will have the city shaken to its core!
Icing on the cake, the massive will get to enjoy stands of great food, vinyls and clothes and a Chillout zone to rest the ears and, of course, the legendary bar of Atelier 210.
Presales are strongly advised, especially for combi tickets which will only be available online. The BDC team has bent over backwards to offer this very first edition at a fair price, let’s have all the rootsmen, bass lovers and stepperaddicts ready for this epic weekend!
Agobun Soundsystem (fr)
Lille based Reggae Roots Soundsystem Agobun was created in 2007, taking inspiration from both the local scene (Chalice, Coptic…) and the London Dub sounds (Abashanti, Shaka, Tubbys…). Through the years, the crew has been building a serious underground reputation while featuring as residents for Bass Temple, Early Dub, Lille Dub Allstars and Warrior Charge.
Agobun insists on bringing a quality sound which mixes both power and clarity as well as transmitting an original vibe for each session. They’re currently recording and mixing their own dub plates, gathering palpable influences from the 80’s and 90’s Roots sound.
Masego Soundsystem (Nl)
Masego soundsystem is a handbuilt roots and dub soundsystem collective based in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
Taking inspiration from the original Jamaican and United Kingdom soundsystem culture they have been active since 2009 as selectors going by the name of Original Dub Radix.
After a couple of years playing various events they felt the need for a strong link in their own hometown. They started to organize events in Rotterdam and worked with King Shiloh Soundsystem, Jah Shaka, Jah Tubbys world soundsystem, Mad Professor, Imperial Sound Army, Rise and Shine soundsystem, Young Warrior, Gussie P, Joseph Lalibela, Nish Wadada, Murray Man, Jah Version, Black Omolo, Jah Rootz, Lyrical Benjie, Justice soundsystem and many more.
While hosting various successful events in and around Rotterdam and being booked on festivals in the Netherlands and abroad they never stopped working on their own soundsystem. With a burning passion for the culture, the roots and the dub they saw the moment their soundsystem came alive and with that, the birth of a new name. Masego means Blessed in the Tswana language, the name reflects to the mission and the passion of JAH music. Now armed with their 6 scoop soundsystem they continue their works, spreading the message of Rastafari itinually.
