Boomtown Fair has announced Forest Parties: Part One, an installment of reggae, dancehall and dub.

One of fifteen district announcements, the Forest Parties installment will be taking place at Hidden Woods and Tangled Roots, two of the exciting stages at the heart of Boomtown Fair.

The headliners for the latest announcement are Zion Train, Jesse Royal, The Heatwave, and Congo Natty.

Headlining Hidden Woods are UK Dub icons and purveyors of reggae, Zion Train, who will be bringing positive vibrations and groundbreaking mixes alongside live vocals and instruments.

Jesse Royal, will be performing some of his latest tracks, set to inspire and unite people across borders with his profound lyricism and restless artistic spirit, bringing reggae back to its roots whilst introducing a diverse musical taste.

Jungle legend, Congo Natty, is set to rumble the jungle with heavy, high tempo ragga beats whilst the last (but by no means the least) of the Hidden Woods headliners, The Heatwave, are a definite must-see and sure to bring the sunshine with their explosive dancehall rhythms.

In another of Boomtown’s woodland areas is Tangled Roots, powered by the renowned Lionpulse & Sinai Sound Systems.

Co-founder of the legendary dubstep label DMZ, Mala, will stir up a musical melting pot of contemporary electronic music, alongside Pinch, who fuses reggae, world music, dancehall and dubstep – a combination that is guaranteed to get people moving.
