About Wee Dub Festival

The Wee Dub Festival launched in 2011 as a one night one venue event at Studio 24 in Edinburgh, with Vibronics headlining. In 2012 the event took a giant leap forward, expanding to a whole weekend and featuring 5 sessions, with a programme that included Zion Train, Mad Professor, Dub Mafia, Radikal Guru and many more. Since then Wee Dub has seen performances from a huge range of acts representing all styles – Iration Steppas, Mad Professor, Macka B, Dubkasm, Mungo’s Hi-Fi, Chopstick Dubplate, Dreadsquad, Aba Shanti-I, Brother Culture, Soom T, Chainska Brassika to name a few. Wee Dub Festival is now regarded as one of the premium reggae events in the UK, and continues to welcome a wide range of artists and ticket buyers to Edinburgh for an annual weekend of musical appreciation and good vibes.

In 2018 the festival will once again host a series of sessions across various underground venues in Edinburgh’s Old Town, covering a significant amount of the dub-reggae musical spectrum.

Aside from the main gig sessions, there will also be a Sunday Social, featuring kids activities, Jamaican fusion food, workshops. There will also be a film screening on Sunday evening.

All of the venues at which Wee Dub Festival takes place are within walking distance from each other, situated in the centre of Edinburgh. With a wealth of hostels and hotels in the area, it is an easy event to travel to from afar – previous editions have attracted visitors from across the UK and Europe.

Ticketing is flexible – you can buy a ticket for the entire weekend, which will get you access to the full programme of gigs, club and events – but we also sell individual tickets for each session in case you just want to come check one or two of them. See full ticketing options

So if you are an ardent reggae head, a fan of good music or want to discover a new festival experience, we humbly imvite you to join us at Wee Dub Festival 2018.
