The coolest one-day bass, beats and hip hop festivals imaginable
Beat Horizon is the UK’s premier curator of underground culture. Known for creating amazing one-day festival experiences, they bring together some of the world’s top musicians for unmissable live music events.
Beat Horizon – Bass Day
In late January 2021, Beat Horizon announced a massive evening of bass for 8 October 2021 at London’s O2 Forum Kentish Town. Dubbed Beat Horizon – Bass Day, fans should prepare for a colossal all-nighter, with David “Ram Jam” Rodigan set to headline. He was awarded an Order of Distinction by the Jamaican government in August 2020 for his global promotion of Jamaican music. Over the years, Rodigan has held radio residencies on numerous stations and currently plays the best in reggae and dub music on BBC 1Xtra.
Alongside him will be jungle producer and toaster Congo Natty, who’s widely known as the Rebel MC, and dubstep production duo Digital Mystikz consisting of Mala (born Mark Lawrence) and Coki. Plus, expect a wide variety of bass sounds because Beat Horizon – Bass Day will also play host to Dillinja, Jungle Cakes, DJ Storm, Real Roots and many more.
Beat Horizon – Hip Hop Day
In early February 2021, Beat Horizon also announced a huge hip hop evening for 9 October 2021 at London’s O2 Forum Kentish Town. This carefully curated event will bring together some of the world's finest hip hop artists. Topping the bill are Detroit pioneers Slum Village, who got their start in the early ’90s and are known for their huge 2004 hit Selfish featuring Kanye West and John Legend. Although they've been through numerous line-ups over the years, the crew’s 2019 release The Source EP is as prolific as ever.
In addition, Beat Horizon – Hip Hop Day will also features Lowkey (born Kareem Dennis), one of the biggest names on the UK hip hop underground scene, alongside Homeboy Sandman, Marlowe, Tall Black Guy, Mr Thing and more.
