Goa Sunsplash 2020 Line-up
Check out the Goa Sunsplash 2020 full line up and make sure you don't miss your favourite artists rock the stage and shred the mic! Here's some of the fire you can expect on the glorious weekend!
United Kingdom 🇬🇧
Macka B was one of Britain's most influential dancehall toasters, pushing the music back toward a Rastafarian political consciousness. His rough, gravelly vocals gave him an instantly identifiable sound, and his production -- chiefly handled by Mad Professor -- updated dub reggae techniques for the dancehall age, proving that the two sounds weren't mutually exclusive. Although the vast majority of Macka B's material was devoted to spiritual and social messages, he did lighten the mood with occasional humorous novelty material. He shunned any aspirations for a commercial crossover, however, staying true to the sound and spirit of reggae's roots. His 1986 album Sign of the Times still remains a milestone of British reggae, and he continued to record for Mad Professor's Ariwa label into the new millennium.

O.B.F. + Charlie P
United Kingdom 🇬🇧
O.B.F In eighteen years O.B.F has established itself as one of the toughest soundsystems in France, playing internationally and progressively becoming one of the most respected dub sounds in Europe. The crew is known for the quality of his productions and its ability to run a session like no other, with an intensity that blasts a crowd. After several releases on "Dubquake Records" and "O.B.F Records" including a first LP called « Wild », and many collaborations with the best dub producers and singers, O.B.F returns with a long awaited second LP. A new stage in the development of its collaboration with Charlie P. Charlie P Hailing from Southend, Essex, Charlie P has been singing since the young age of 5, starting as a Motown/Blues singer before quickly learning of a love for Reggae music. Holding a connection to Reggae before he was even born (his Uncle run the locally popular Simba Sound) Charlie's first vocals saw him join ska-collective Goldmaster All-Stars, and at the age of 11 his passion for Jamaican music soon turned into a well-known talent. Nick Dubateers, a man who owned a local sound system, soon noticed Charlie’s skills and took him to Conscious Sounds studio to record first album 'Hustle', which he and the Dubateers toured extensively around Europe. His first six vinyl followed, as well as debut video ‘Backstabbers’ – All of which helped further develop his natural talent and distinctive tenor tone that has made him such a hit on the Reggae Sound system circuit and beyond. Charlie's most second LP was released in 2015 and was the result of his collaboration with Mungo's Hi Fi of Glasgow, which started in 2010. The release of album ‘You See me Star’ further showcases Charlie's talent as a recording artiste and brings together the best tracks across the styles that he loves, from Roots Reggae and Dancehall to modern bass music. The 'Youngest Veteran's' popularity continues to grow with his status as a regular show headliner confirmed, touring the world from Boomtown to Outlook to Africa in 2015 alone and clocking up work with such luminaries as Mungo’s Hi FI, Dubateers, Second 2 None, Kenny Knots, Biga Ranx, Ranking Joe, The Goldmaster All-Stars, Michael Profit, Jah Tubby, Earl 16, Iration Steppas, Bush Chemists, Conscious Sounds, King General, OBF SoundSystem and many more over the course of an esteemed career for such a young artist. 2016 and beyond looks set to continue in the same vein, with a full album scheduled with O.B.F Soundsystem for april 2018 and the introduction of his own imprint, BoxMan Records.
