Follow as it unfolds: Website | Facebook | Twitter | #DubChampions on Instagram

Subatomic Sound presents the 3rd annual Dub Champions Festival Europe, a journey into the international musical phenomenon called “dub.” Characterized by heavy bass, drums, and the copious use of effects, producers become the artists and the mixing board becomes an instrument with this Jamaican art form.  The festival features both performances & educational workshops to exhibit how the music is created and has evolved from its 1970s, reggae roots to become a cornerstone of electronic bass music. Dub has also inspired countless genres from rap to rock to punk to dance music, and in the process has redefined the role of producer as artist. Advance ticket links for all events on the festival site and Facebook events for all 9 shows and workshops.


Dub Champions Festival was founded in New York City by Subatomic Sound, and is dedicated to featuring the world’s greatest dub pioneers from Jamaica to every continent worldwide.  Our goal is to build a global network of artists and event promoters across generations who are committed to educating, preserving, and pushing forward the sound and tradition of dub music through high quality music and events. The European festival is produced in cooperation with our committed friends and family from Dubblestandart, Bunfire Squad, True Soldiers Productions, RAW, SubPac, and Dubspot.
