Outlook Festival is a celebration of soundsystem culture, exploring the musical genealogy that connects Jamaican roots music to its modern day counterparts, through heavyweight soundsystems, in a friendly, warm and inspiring peninsular, sea-side location. There are over 400 acts playing in and around the 150 year old Fort Punta Christo, a 1km stretch of beach, and a world of intimate boat parties.
When we talk about bass music we don’t mean the bastardised commercial version currently being sold to children, we mean underground dancefloor music, whether it be house, techno, dubstep, reggae, dub, hiphop, garage, grime, electronica. . . . . . as Duke Ellington put it “There are two kinds of music. Good music, and the other kind.” Now approaching its seventh year, Outlook has grown rapidly and is going from strength to strength! Anyone who has come to any of the last 7 Outlooks will tell you how amazing the vibe was, how wicked the music was, how beautiful the smiling people were and how stunning the setting is.
The Heatwave are a bashment raving scandal, a non-stop dancehall party like nothing you’ve ever seen.
The Heatwave are the UK’s number one bashment sound. They are a London dancehall crew but we cause insanity all over the world: catch them on Rinse FM, in clubs, with crazy remixes or on their legendary mixtapes. Plus they run Hot Wuk – the UK’s maddest bashment party – every week in central London and on an everlasting tour around the country.
