‘Jamaica Rum Tings’ now in its third year and is looking bigger, better and bolder than before; a true celebration of Jamaican Independence. ‘Jamaica Rum Tings ’ comes to London’s legendary Big Chill House in Kings Cross for a Carnival warm up whilst wrapping up this summer’s series of events for a unique day and night takeover. The
unbelievable line-up will feature an exclusive
reggae set from Reggae royalty headliners
Daddy G (massive attack) and Brixton’s
homegrown D&B legend Fabio playing
exclusive Reggae sets. Soundclash is hosted
by Serocee featuring teams including Rinse
FMs award winning Uncle Dugs, Disorda and
Rompa’s Reggae Shack. The Real Roots collective returns and Digital Niyabinghi presents an Originators show case featuring Don Letts and Trevor Sax of Saxon Sound. Expect a very special unannounced PA – not a gig to be missed this summer.
Guests will enjoy the sounds of Jamaican music from all eras; skank to the latest tracks and salute the original riddims which have inspired these sounds, as well as hear the best in old and new school reggae.
This year, Wray & Nephew will be opening their doors to ‘Wray’s Record Shop’. A hundred of the finest reggae tunes will be played throughout the event curated by Tune of the Day.
A live graffiti wall will appear throughout the day. Guests will also be invited to nominate tunes for the record wall, take photos with legendary DJs and take home a 12” record sleeve souvenir featuring a live personalised graffiti piece of their choice. In addition to this, Fish, Wings & Tings is serving Wray & Nephew Jerk BBQ on the roof terrace to
Wray’s Drinks Trolley returns as guests will be invited to take the Wray & Nephew free pour challenge to win prizes and have the chance to learn how to make the perfect Reggae Rum Punch. As well as impressing their friends that
they can pour the perfect 25 ml shot, 2015 also introduces the ‘Reggae Rum Punch Relay Race’, a new challenge that will see teams of four try and collectively make a Reggae Rum Punch faster than the Jamaican 4x100m relay team’s world record. The reward for such a feat will be an extra special Wray goodie box featuring a limited edition t-shirts, punch making kits, cups, dominoes. Domino tables will be set up for guests to compete in or simply to just sit back, relax and enjoy the play, the Jamaica way.
Through to the early hours, guests will enjoy the sights, sounds and tastes of Jamaican culture and
a true Jamaican house party. A giant Instagram wall will showcase a documentation of the event and all posts featuring the #WRAYRUMTINGS .
Each Jamaica Rum Tings event will be supported with up to ten mini experiences in each local area. The mini Jamaica Rum Tings events will take place in key bars in London, Leeds and Bristol and will offer a range of Jamaican inspired activities, from open deck sessions allowing people to show off their mixing skill as well as the chance to try Reggae Rum Punch from one of the bespoke Wray & Nephew bars.
