Other confirmed artists include WARA, Los Charley's Orchestra, Baila La Cumbia, De Fuego (Friday), Reggae legends Macka B & Rasites (Saturday), Yaaba Funk, Muntu Valdo, United Vibration and Nubiyan Twist (Sunday).

Uniquely, the festival will be 100% vegetarian with a World Street Food Market offering delicious, freshly prepared dishes from around the globe.

 

Adult weekend tickets, which include camping, are just £60, with children under 15 half price and Under 5′s free.

 

Every ticket includes free transport to and from Redruth Train station, making Tropical Pressure one of the greenest festivals on the calendar.

Album Review: Nubiyan Twist – Jungle Run [Strut Records; February 2019]

Jazz has many different guises and, within those guises, a further plethora of textures. It’s one of the traits that sets it apart from other genres, classical music excepted. In the ongoing revival and reinvention of jazz within these shores, there is clearly a surfeit of talent. Nestled in amongst…

Album Review: Dub Colossus – Dr Strangedub (Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Dub the Bomb) [Echomaster; 2019]

Dr Strangedub (Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Dub the Bomb) is possibly one of the most inventive albums to date. Each track is an enthusiastic cacophony of global traditions and contemporary fusions without being reduced by genre boundaries or five-minute clichés. Dr Strangedub was a long time…

Video Premiere: Natty – Things I’ve Done (27th June 2018)

Instead, what we would like to present and…

Event Review: Jam on RYE Festival @ Peckham Rye (London; 29th May 2018)

From the first Jamaican rude-boy sound systems of Duke Reid and Prince Buster to Trojan Records of London 1968, ska, rocksteady, reggae and dub sound system culture has thrived in Britain’s black culture and has defined generations and popular trends. A sunny May Bank Holiday saw hundreds take to Peckham Rye…

Event Review: Ealing Jazz Festival @ Walpole Park (London, 29th July 2017)

Much like a charming village fete with a complimentary cleansing mud bath, Ealing Jazz Festival provided both entertainment and healing from the music and comedy of sliding from one stage to another. Unfortunately for the locals, this was the second week that the Walpole celebrations had been washed out. However,…

Event Review: Love Supreme Festival (Glynde Place, 30th June to 2nd July 2017)

The concept of an outdoor jazz festival hardly conjures images of glitter-filled Glastonbury excitement, a young hip crowd and dance-fuelled elation. However, previously exclusive jazz appears to be undergoing a fashion revolution and the grounds of Glynde Place hinted at this. Love Supreme, the UK’s only three-day greenfield jazz festival…

News: United Vibrations & Yussef Kamaal Refused Visas to Play at SXSW (14th March 2017)

The fear across the world that Trump’s ‘extreme vetting’ executive order was a poorly conceived smokescreen to appease an angry, xenophobic minority have been proved once again. After the US consulate initially granted visas to Yussef, Ahmad and Kareem Dayes, they have now been revoked. Between them, they make up…

Album Review: Terraforming in Analogue Space – IRL Remixes 2000 – 2015 (IRL, 24th February 2017) + Q&A with Nick “Dubulah” Page

IRL’s double album, Terraforming In Analogue Space – IRL Remixes 2000 – 2015 celebrates 15 years (2000-2015) of the unique, Aztec, spiritual sound for which they are so well known.

Review: Natty, Congo Natty, Mad Professor, Subajah & Trojan Soundsystem @ Electric Brixton (London, 4th November 2016)

Tonight begins with a performance from Subajah, who, in and of himself, is an incredibly talented man. He displays his abilities as a rapper, singer and composer with real aplomb. In an age of vapid consumerism, it’s pleasing to find artists willing to stand up and go against the grain, educating the…

Album Review: Nubiyan Twist – Siren Song [Wormfood Records, 27th May 2016]

Following their highly celebrated debut album in 2015, the eclectic 12-piece band from Leeds, Nubiyan Twist, is back with their new EP, Siren Song. And what an apt name for this second album, which allures and entices its listeners in many unexpected ways, from its dance-inducing funk groves and intoxicating…

Interview: Nubiyan Twist (July 2016)

One of the most exciting names on the UK music scene is also one of its most indefinable and difficult to pigeonhole. That’s because the musical ‘dirty’ dozen Nubiyan Twist (in honour of its front woman) dislikes definitions, labels or borders. The band, originally from Leeds, London, Oxford and Dublin…
