For over 35 years David Rodigan has been the top dog in the ganja-scented, bass heavy-atmosphere of Britain’s reggae dance-halls. The key to his success has been an unsinkable passion for reggae music, which first took a hold of him as a schoolboy when he heard ska music in the early ’60s, growing up in Kidlington, Oxford.

Since then the DJ has become a titan of UK broadcasting for his shows on Capital, Kiss FM and BBC Radio 1Xtra. He’s also clashed (and won) against the baddest sounds that the world has to offer….. The King of the Festivals, he has shutdown Common People, Glastonbury and Hideout, just to name a few!!

Tonight Rodigan returns to his home town, flanked by Count Skylarkin, Light Roots Sound, Back For Good, King Lloyd and some VERY special guests indeed.

The last time… we’re going back to the site of DJ Derek’s first-ever Oxford appearance a decade ago, and we’re making it a bit special. Featuring a very special live set from the great Susan Cadogan (all the way from Jamaica!), this will also be the final night of DJ Derek’s decade-long love affair with the people of Oxford. Earlybird tickets have sold out, and we’ve already had to move this one to the Academy from the Cellar due to demand. Don’t miss out!


SUSAN CADOGAN
LIVE & DIRECT FROM KINGSTON JAMAICA! ‘Hurt So Good’, ‘Nice & Easy’, ‘Piece Of My Heart’ – Susan Cadogan is one of the Caribbean’s best-loved singers. From the groundbreakers and hitmakers she recorded with Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry at the height of the seminal Black Ark madness through Top Of The Pops appearances and lovers rock classics, Susan’s recorded output has rarely been less than sensational over the years, and her live performances remain truly mesmerising. Onstage 9pm with a fantastic backing band in The Sidewalk Doctors – don’t miss this one-time only opportunity to catch a reggae great in Oxford.


THE LEGENDARY DJ DEREK
DJ Derek’s final appearance behind a set of decks in Oxford. Derek has been gracing Skylarkin’ Soundsystem nights for the last decade, and is bowing out at last in order to (finally!) enjoy his well-earned retirement. Come along and dance one last time to the selector who has soundtracked some of the best nights of our lives.


THE SIDEWALK DOCTORS
Backing Susan and playing a special set of their own, perennial Skyarkin’ favourites and rocksteady dons The Sidewalk Doctors will move your hips and stir your soul.


MIGHTY LEAP
One of the best young British reggae acts around, Mighty Leap feature the soaring vocal talents of Desta Zion Wilson and deep, soulful grooves. Arrive early!


COUNT SKYLARKIN
The Count has been running Skylarkin’ Soundsystem in Oxford for 13 years, with DJ Derek a regular fixture over the past decade or more. Skylarkin’ Soundsystem nights will of course live on… but there’ll never be another DJ Derek.
