Put this Friday aside if you’re in Ireland!
Mungo’s HiFi will headline the official Cork launch of the Outlook Festival, Europe’s biggest and best soundsystem culture and bass music event, in the Pavilion, Cork next May 10th.
The Outlook Festival will take place at the end of September in Pula, Croatia in the beautiful surrounds of Fort Punto Christo. Festival stages vary greatly from the norm and gigs take place in the fort courtyard, (where the Mungo’s HiFi Soundsystem is in residence all weekend), Fort Punto Christo’s moat, the nearby beach, on boat parties in the bay as well as in the nearby Roman Amphitheatre, the finest preserved in Europe.
“We’ve wanted to have these lads over to play for years and years, they always lay down a good buzz. So when the Outlook Festival approached us about doing a collaboration, we decided it was the perfect opportunity to bring them”, said Rob DC.
The Cork festival launched, curated by Riseup and DubCulture promotions will feature residents Rob Dc and Jonezy and guest Bilbo, who will also be performing at the festival in Croatia. Headliners on the night are Scottish soundsystem champions, Mungo’s HiFi.
Mungo’s Hi Fi is an infamous sound system crew based in Glasgow, Scotland which follows the original Jamaican sound system tradition. Bringing up-to-date reggae, dub and dancehall sounds to Glasgow across the city in venues such as the Glasgow School of Art. The sound system quickly became part of a wider reggae network with a hectic schedule of live performance, both djing and as a sound system at clubs and events across the UK and Europe.Mungo’s host the duly named “Mungo’s Arena” at Outlook & Dimensions – and it’s always one of the most talked about aspects of the festivals. They also run one of the best dub labels around today – Scotch Bonnet Records.
