Bringing a taste of Notting Hill Carnival and true sound system culture to Ireland, the Riddim Shack is one of the biggest dub, reggae and dancehall stages in Ireland, featuring a mix of eclectic beats, dub and sound system vibes to resonate throughout the weekend.

The Riddim Shack is set to host the great Mungos HiFi alongside Solo Banton, so expect heavy dub vibes with catchy dance floor licks alongside Banton’s endlessly positive lyrics and incredibly catchy style.
