Roots Rock Reggae Collective presents The 420 Rebelution Blackout
The 420 Rebelution Blackout is a reggae event that celebrates the decriminalisation and legalisation of the personal use of marijuana in South Africa. The event will take place on April the 20th, the designated international day for cannabis smoking and it will be held at the trendy Urban Rooftop Backpackers in Johannesburg, with stunning views of the inner city of gold, making it a perfect set up to take a toke, accompanied by some reggae vibes and live music and a hot 420 selection from the host DJ’s.
The event will be hosted by The Roots Rock Reggae Collective, an event production company that provides South Africans with an authentic live music experience featuring local and international artists and DJ’s. The collective is comprised of DJ’s Lebogang Kgomongwe (Selekta Coppashot) and Moeng Mo (Guesst DJ) alongside Zamazwide Nxumalo as the events promoter. The Roots Rock Reggae collective has themed this year: The Year of Rebellution, rebelling from all forms of confinement and anything that holds people back from being the best versions themselves.
“We are a collective, and we believe that through collaboration we can achieve so much more,” explains Zama. “This is important to us because we are all for freedom. We also want to emphasize the idea that we believe that the indigenous people of South Africa should benefit the most from the fruits of the soil hence the #Blackout edition.”
The collective is also committed to growing black owned businesses, that is why they teamed up with TAM gaming, South Africa’s biggest black owned gaming company. The TAM gaming crew will bring a wide array of games to the event for all the stoner gamers in attendance.
Scrumptious food will be on sale thanks to Hot Wok Events and catering solutions. The same hands that make freshly pressed Hotei Juices. They will also have a special Rose Gin service station with a capable hostess who will keep them coming all night long.
The artists billed for the day are Radio 123 Teddy Pleasure Momo Dread and Mad Kind with Phindile Zwane as the the MC for the night. Selektas CoppaShot; Guesst DJay; Jab A Jaw; RMBO; Rudebwoy Sphola and Sanctified Dub will be on deck to keep the vibes flowing on the rooftop dance floor.
