About this Event

In a grassroots movement, local roots and reggae musicians have teamed up with local small business to offer a lakeside DIY mini-festival for Canberra audiences - featuring live music, DJs, freshly made artisan foods + refreshing beverages.

A celebration of the inbound summer vibes with a bit of ROOTS & REGGAE by the Lake! Free entry for one and all!

Food & Drinks: Bellair Coffee + The Pop Inn + The Pizza Trailer

Live Music: Kopasetic + Liam Wright + Black Cypress + DJ Madda Irie

Kopasetic : is an emerging band in Canberra whose originals blend deft fingerstyle guitar, lead bass work and worldly drum rhythms. The lads are energising a new wave of folk, roots and reggae enthusiasm in the capital and this year featured at a series of sold out shows in Canberra including their debut EP launch that sold over 120+ tickets on presales. As 2XX put it, Kopasetic are doing wonderful things for the folk, blues and reggae world in Canberra. Come see them live before they embark on an international tour across New Zealand in 2020.

Liam Wright :Young & up-coming artist Liam Wright is a passionate songwriter from the Nation’s Capital. He’s spent the last couple of years working on an emotion driven set which pulls you in, getting you lost in the stories. His songs are melodic and detailed, mainly getting his influence from the likes of Neil Young or Paul Kelly.

Black Cypress: A new blues, roots and folk band on the block, Black Cyprus performs a mixture of dark, alternative folk with a tinge of hillbilly and a dash of blues. Their voices blend harmoniously to create a nostalgic soundscape while their storytelling evokes folk fiction.

Madda Irie (Reggae Rockas) : Formed in 2018 as a collab between established & emerging DJs, Reggae Rockas is inspired by the Reggae Revival music & social roots movement in Jamaica.
