DANDELION SOUNDSYSEM PRESSEFOTO 2018Hailing from Freising in the south of Germany, Dandelion Soundsystem has established themselves as one of the country’s most well-respected forces in conscious roots and dub music over the past 2 decades. Their mutual journey began around the year 2000, with the construction of their home-made, heavyweight sound system.

Since that time they have been organizing events with artists such as Jah Shaka, Aba Shanti-I, Channel One, King Shiloh, Alpha & Omega and Zion Gate HiFi among others, as well as spreading their vibes and powerful message across the European continent from Austria, Switzerland and Italy, to Croatia, Spain, Poland and Hungary.


In 2009 Dandelion launched their own label – New Flower Records – which has seen international support from the likes of Channel One & King Shiloh (among others). Their musical cooperations with singers such as Sista Sherin, Treasure Irie or Isayah turn every session into a very special experience.

Once a year, Dandelion Soundsystem runs the famous “Rootsbase” at Fusion Festival near Berlin – which has become one of the main gathering points for German sound system enthusiasts over the years. With the strength of the community which they built up during their time at Fusion, they launched their own aptly named Rootsbase Festival in 2017, which quickly became one of the main annual highlights for the German sound system scene!
