The very best coastal reggae selectas are banding together for an all day showcase of underground sounds in the perfect prelude to the festival season.

Reggae: All Day will see an ensemble drawn from a deep pool of seasoned talent from across Gwynedd and Denbighshire to the Blue Bell, Conwy for 12 hours of revelations of British roots’ best kept secret.

From midday to midnight, prolific impresarios the Ritual Collective will present the a dizzying line up of Jamaican flavoured rhythm for both the uninitiated and those who know their dub and ska from their dancehall and calypso.

Colwyn Bay’s The Ritual Collective are a cult quintet of rising stars, whose passion for a staging a staggering array of genres has seen the alter egos of sound engineers Tom Jones, Max Edwards, Glen Pearce, Callum Evans and James Flower amass an avid following across North Wales.

Jones, the backbone of the group, and EP collaborator Edwards will appear as Bödhi and Chunkin Sound for a magical mix of Carribean music.

Pearce, the Ritual’s main whizz and sound engineer will appear as Tangled Roots, following up a triumphant start to the year which has seen the release of his debut EP narcotics.

Ritual's resident DJ Flower, best known for his chops mixing funk and soul will bring his alias Jaraffe out to play before getting back to work on his debut EP which is due out later this year.

Joining the Ritual boys are vinyl spinning vets Kat and Pheeva, two Bangor based ladies who are currently representing reggae with their own Vinyl Vagabonds event.

Also lending their talents are Denbigh’s U Know festival founder George Faire reprising his Lumbertracks persona, and Selectjah Ben, Skanking Sounds event master and Ty Coch, Nefyn mainstay - with much more to be announced.

This first congregation of so much grass roots talent is not to be missed for any self respecting reggae fan, come rain or shine.

Head to the Blue Bell from 12pm on Saturday, May 19.

Admission is £6 and is available on the door.
