Sumol Summer Fest, taking place on the Ericeira Camping Park between the 26th and 28th of June, will have as a new feature an area dedicated to dub, a music genre with roots in reggae. This space will be curated by the Blackboard Jungle Soundsystem collective and will have the presence of MCs and Selectors who will share their music through a pyramid of speakers with a power of 30 thousand watts.

Blackboard Jungle Soundsystem are a collective from Rouen, northeast France, founded in 1994 which is dedicated to the promotion of the jamaican culture, mostly reggae, through the RC2 radio station. The collective will be responsible for the curatorship of the artists that will be a part of the Dubzone.

Among these are Jah Tubby’s Soundsystem,   who first started on the north of London on the 70’s and which will perform with Macky Banton, one of the collective’s members; Sentinel Sound, a reggae group from Stuttgart, Germany; and the portuguese groups Jah Version and Delmighty Sounds.

Sumol Summer Fest starts on the 26th of June with the Welcome Party  of the festival. On the 27th,
Bomba Estéreo, Ky-Mani Marley, Protoje and John Butler Trio will perform and on the 28th it will be the turn of Anthony B, Lutan Fyah, Perfect Giddimani, D8 and Cidade Negra to came up on stage.

The tickets are already on sale for 65€ (2 days, with camping), 50€ (2 days, no camping) and 40€ (daily ticket).

Sumol Summer Fest, Ericeira’s current main music event, was distinguished as the Best Medium Sized Festival  last year by the Portugal Festival Awards.
