Hey hey, our good pals at Positive Vibration in Liverpool and at London International Ska Festival have made some line up announcements and they’re pretty blinkin’ exciting as it goes.

Positive Vibration have announced the first raft of artists coming to the Baltic Triangle next year:

Macka B & The Roots Ragga Band

Sister Nancy & Legal Shot Sound System

Adrian Sherwood & Creation Rebel

Iration Steppas

Misty in Roots

Don Letts

Channel One Sound System

Manudigital with Parly B and Bazil

Capital Letters

Radikal Guru with Echo Ranks and Cian Finn

Dubkasm with Solo Banton

Count Skylarkin’ presents ‘Derek’s Island Discs’

Frankly if they added nothing else the line-up would already be huge, great to see the legendary Sister Nancy on the bill, along with all time favourite dub master Adrian Sherwood,  sound system culture is in strong effect with Iration Steppaz, Channel One System and Dubkasm, past Funkdub guest and renaissance man Don Letts makes a welcome return and we’re really pleased to see Capital Letters on the bill. Get your tickets here.
