Messenger, the original roots advertiser, consistently programmes the heights of conscious reggae music, dub-wise and otherwise!  Crazy to think now that it first started in Edinburgh back in 1987 and that it’s been keeping the fires burning, every month, at the Bongo for two thirds of that time.  That’s 30, THIRTY, years at the heart of Edinburgh’s reggae scene, and 20 years here at the Bongo!  Upstairs: Sound System Legacies explores the legacy of dub / reggae / roots music and sound system culture on more contemporary club / dance music styles such as dubstep, jungle, d n b, garage etc, featuring DJ Skillis plus guests…  Look out for some of the mighty Messenger Sound System in here as well!  2 Floors of music – Don’t miss!  Powered by Messenger Sound System.  FACEBOOK

You bet!
