The Story of UK Reggae

Each year we host a Reggae Q&A session, in which we discuss the impact of Reggae on British music, culture and society. The discussion is led by a panel of Reggae luminaries, from musicians, artists and DJs to promoters, record labels and other industry experts.  The Q&A is an opportunity for the panel and festival-goers to engage with one another, sharing stories, knowledge and experiences.
