Trojan Records, one of the most known record labels in the reggae music industry, has organized a non-profit virtual festival to shine some Caribbean sunshine on the current grey clouds that are hanging above us.
An afternoon packed full of great music and entertainment.

The online event will also feature engaging activities with the fans including games and short cookout sessions!
Don Letts, Trojan Sound System, Rhoda Dakar, Suns of Dub, Reggae Roast ft Natty Campbell, Janet Kay, Gardna, Susan Cadogan, Basil Gabbidon (Steel Pulse), Kiko Bun, DubPistols DJ Set and Shabba Party takeover ft Pharaoh G will all perform live throughout the day hosted by Capital Xtra DJ Ras Kwame. Summer Soundclash will be streamed live on trojansummersoundclash.com from the roof terrace of The Prince of Wales in Brixton as well as games and cookout sessions being broadcast for all ages to enjoy. Adhering to the current social distancing rules and accessed via all Trojan Records social platforms from 2pm – 10pm (UK Time) the event will close with a live after party broadcast directly from the Caribbean!
With a raffle being hosted every hour, attendees have the opportunity to win an assortment of prizes which include official Ska and Soul Trojan merch, limited edition orange vinyl from Music and Vinyl, original Trojan test pressings, Damson speakers and tickets to some of the biggest reggae festivals taking place in 2021.
Throughout the day Trojan Records will also be asking viewers to donate to UK and Caribbean based charities that support causes important to the label such as Color of Change (Black Lives Matter), Children of the Caribbean and The Music Venues Trust, with a percentage of the latter going directly to the performers on the day.
Fans and viewers can stream the event for free across their chosen social media platform. The festival content will remain on YouTube for those unable to tap into the live stream in realtime and will be pushed out to a global audience on social despite being broadcast from the UK.
