Refugees Welcome!


We are proud to announce our support of the Plus1 initiative at A Bass Odyssey in Mensch Meier from June 9th – 11th, 2017!

Plus1 is a young initiative which provides an opportunity and organizational framework for Berlin’s party and cultural scene to take a collective stand in welcoming refugees to our city.

As a community who thrives on multi-culturalism and a wide range of musical influences diverged from decades of immigration and its fusion with urban culture, we are strong believers that we need to do everything we can to support refugees in their quest for humane living conditions.

In accordance with Plus1, we kindly request that every person on the guest list – including artists and performers if they wish – donates at least 1 € to the campaign. The money will be collected and contributed equally to different initiatives that are helping refugees, such as SOS Mediterranee, Sea Watch, Jugend Rettet & CADUS – all of which are engaged in “sea rescue” missions; aiding refugees fleeing war torn regions and poverty-stricken countries.

Refugees Welcome!

Early Bird Tickets Now Available!


The line up is now complete! The artwork is finished, festival bracelets are in production, and the flyers will be landing in Berlin this week!

This was all made possible by everyone who has bought an “Early Bird” ticket so far. Thank you all for your support!

We still have some early bird tickets left – available through our official Ticket Shop – for only 15€! General presale will go online in February for 20€.

We would also like to send out a big thank you to the Irie Ites posse for their nice little write up about the event, especially for all our German speaking massive!

Beim lesen der Ankündigung treibt es einem schon fast die Tränen der Vorfreude in die Augen, denn ein nur annhähernd dickes Line-Up hat die Stadt lange nicht gesehen..

The Prince Of Dub


We were going to wait until next Monday to make this announcement, but the suspense is just too much to bare!

The 3 princes of Serendub will be joined by an extra-special guest on the “Soundsystem Education” floor on Friday night, hailing from the Prince of Dub Soundsystem, representing the heavyweight dub sound from the UK, the son of the mighty Jah Shaka – the one and only:

Young Warrior (Jah Shaka Music // UK)


Few artists can claim such a lifelong exposure to dub music and Soundsystem culture. Living in the legacy of the mighty Jah Shaka, Young Warrior has been shaped from his childhood by one of the world’s most influential figures in Dub.

Over the past decade he has created his own unique heavyweight style, with releases on Jah Shaka Music & Ariwa – including the Dub Box LP – as well as remixes for the legendary Congo Natty.

Young Warrior’s sets boast a very cutting edge yet old school sound, travelling through “roots & culture” dub music from the 70’s up to the present day, always in the traditional Shaka warrior style; delivering a musical message to the elders and the next generations to come!

Catch Young Warrior headlining the Serendubity floor on Friday, June 9th at A Bass Odyssey in Berlin, alongside Umberto Echo (live), Jah Schulz (live), Acid Dub Foundation (live), Catitah & Flimmerkiste!
