Then, Sunday sessioners can truly celebrate the sound of London with RINSE FM's Mainstage set up or take a trip back to a golden era with RAM Records in the Big Top. Gun fingers up for Matt Jam Lamont's History of Garage Bass, or max out in style with Reggae Roast and the Star of EE Pub stage. For disco kings and queens, South London Soul Train's retro sound will fill Electric City, while So Fresh So Clean bring the 90's sass to Sunday's VIPs.
ADVENTUROUS EXTRAS AND VIP TREATMENT
