About Dub Champions Festival

The festival features both performances & educational workshops to exhibit how the music is created and has evolved from the original roots in Jamaican reggae of the 1970s to becoming a cornerstone of the future of electronic bass music. Along the way it has redefined the role of producer and influenced and inspired countless artists and genres from rap to rock to punk to dance music.
