BABYLON UPRISING, the trailblazing Somerset sound system, returns to Glastonbury Festival in June 2017 to celebrate 6 years of musical mayhem in the heart of the Festival’s market quarter.
Babylon Uprising is a strictly non-commercial, not-for-profit collection of sound boys, artists, musicians and eco-builders, all orbiting around a heavyweight handmade sound system.
With a solid reputation for delivering the vibes come rain or shine, Babylon Uprising showcases some of the undergrounds most prolific artists, alongside up and coming talent. Expect servings of all flavours of music to have spawned from sound system culture; from ragga to garage, roots to rave, and beyond.
Also 2017 will see the triumphant return of the Reason Roadblock! A Notting Hill style carnival cart navigating the festival pathways – with a huge sound system, caribbean dancers and cutting edge DJs. Bringing some Trinidad soca and Afrobeat vibrations to the fields or Worthy Farm!
We look forward to opening our tent doors once more this year for another Babylon boat party (yes, the DJ booth is in a boat) and also to revealing some forward thinking additions for 2017…
