Get ready to shake your ass for justice once again!
July's Galvanize! was a strictly good vibes mashup of the highest order: many, MANY thanks to all who came down and made it such a fun night, raising over £600 for the Free West Papua Campaign. November 20th sees us back at Timbuk2 with yet another juicy lineup of funky beats and bassy treats!
Everyone involved gives their time and talents for free, enabling 100% of profits to go directly towards helping free the people of West Papua from an illegal Indonesian military occupation. A catalogue of unforgivable human rights abuses and environmental destruction goes on with barely a whisper from our media or Government.

The Galvanize! music policy is - if it's good, let's play it and let's play it loud! A mashup selection of the finest Reggae, Hip Hop, Funk, Dubstep, Jungle, Grime, Breaks and beyond.
An absolute bargain 4 quid (before 11, £5 after) gets you all this -
* NO FAKIN DJ’S
Liverpool’s No Fakin' DJ's bring their all-encompassing, 4 turntable extravaganza to blow the sweaty little roof off Timbuk2 – seamlessly fusing hip hop with reggae, funk, soul layered with live instruments, samplers, drum machines and more…we absolutely cannot wait to welcome these scousers to the southwest!
* RSD (Smith & Mighty / Tectonic) B2B JOKER (Kapsize)
Bristol legend Rob Smith gets bassy and grimy in a super exclusive back to back session with, in the words of Mary Anne Hobbs, “one of the sickest young producers on the vibrant Bristol scene” - JOKER. Not to be missed!

Bristol’s Dancehall Queen dishing out her right royal blend of bass-heavy Reggae, Hip Hop, Funk and Latin
